My F-550 with 24.5 semi wheels almost sits up a little taller than my sailboat on the trailer, or close anyway. lol

I did not tow the boat over the road with my ford because I have no where to sleep in it. I did not want to splash the boat using the Kenworth because I was afraid my wheels would start spinning on the slick concrete by the water. My ford would not get stuck. lol

Nice truck!! Cool

We are in the market for a truck to hual Gone. Missed a nice GMC 3500 duelly riding on 21.5 Alcoas last week. Would prefer to buy one in WI to save driving it back up there. Most of them up there have been strapped to a snow plow or are priced a couple grand higher than here.

I do as a hobby, a passion, a curse, reinvent all my modes of transportation. When I purchased the truck new in 2005' there were no F-550's 4wd pickups offered by Ford. So I made one, and ordered Dana 80 running gear that I further beefed up to semi wheels and tires.

9" suspension lift, 3" body lift, along with 24.5 wheels on low pro Michelins gives the truck a 17 inch lift over a stock truck. I then went through the engine removing all the factory anti P crap, put on oversized dual exhaust from the turbo back to the tailpipes. chipped the engine. She sounds like a jet taking off if you get into the accelerator. I am not a fan of the 6.0' but it works I guess. The 7.3 was a hands down all around superior engine. My last truck had that engine. I also had semi wheels on that truck, and I could do burnouts all day long with that engine. This truck will not light up the tires at all, unless it is raining. Lol

Sketchy internet so I'm not getting the video but it looks like quite a beast and the bike as well. I think you have too much fun and possibly no kids. Laughing

Kids. Nope, never had the notion to have my own. My wife is the same way. We sponsored two kids through an orphanage from kindergarten thru college on the other side of the world. Xmas comes and goes, they never write. Kids!

Not having kids, means I get the toys.
