Greetings fellow pickup truck enthusiasts. So, you just got a new truck, a blank slate to build into the customized conveyance of your dreams. Where do you start? What kind of upgrades do you need? Are you hauling gear and supplies to a worksite, boldly venturing into the unpaved wilderness, or building a show truck with enough LED lights to make it visible from the International Space Station?
Ultimately, all of these questions should be preceded by this one: what do you want to do with your truck? This F-150’s owner wanted to strike a balance between the Ford’s impressive highway driving characteristics and some weekend warrior-style off-roading. He also sought to enhance the truck’s utility and add some personalized touches to set it apart from other F-150s. To fulfill these requests, this best-selling blue oval went under the knife at our central Florida studio to receive a slew of impressive upgrades ranging from subtle to serious. From tonneau cover to tires, this is RealTruck’s 2018 Ford F-150 build series.
