Project trucks can come in many forms. Some a garage built weekend warriors, while others are purpose built. Some will spend their life on the trail while others may be mall crawled and built to showcase new and innovative products at SEMA. For the BDS #everydaychase F250 it started life a bit differently. The first 3 years of its life was spent as your average daily driven diesel tow rig. The 2011 Ford F250 Super Duty Lariat was sold at auction where we purchased it and had it delivered to the offices of RTM Productions, home of PowerNation TV and more specifically Ian Johnson of the popular 4x4 build show Xtreme Offroad. Ian had big plans for the truck and wanted to show his audience how to build a bad ass chase truck inspired daily driver built primarily from easy to find bolt-on components.

After taking delivery, Ian made some calls to order parts for the build. The plan was to install BDS's new 6'' Coilover Conversion 4-Link System which would allow for larger wheels and tires, heavy duty front bumper and winch, LED lights, steps, better brakes and additional storage. The initial build sheet consisted of:
