A very impressive underbody with custom axles.

The eBay listing says there are:

  •  Front & rear 3-link suspension
  • 16” travel king coilovers
  • PSCHydraulic steering system with high flow pum
  • Mickey Thompson 46×19.5/16.5 tires on 16.5X14 Weld Scorpion wheels
  • AFE intake
  • JBA headers
  • Magnaflow high flow converter
  • Gibson muffler
  • All suspension parts are either red or chrome plated
  • Frame painted silver, smoothed prior to reassembly

One of the things setting this truck apart is the custom built axles from Custom Differentials. They are 1 ton Ford D60 center housings cut down to 65″ WMS-WMS with 6×6.6 bolt platters disc brakes. And both axles have lockers. The truck uses a 5.38 gearing ratio. This is different than your standard gearing since the axles and the height force you to change up the gearing or you would simply have no real torque.

Log? What log?!?

Another issue with this type of truck is getting the driveshaft the right length and to make sure it is easy to steer. The owner says it is a “Z linked steering system designed by KatKustoms.com and provides no binding or bump steer throughout the full suspension travel.”

Not surprisingly, it uses a Tom Woods driveline shafts mated to Dana 24 divorce mounted transfer case.  Plus, there is a a “custom machined rotor is matted to the rear output of the transfer case and used as the driveline emergency brake.”

Besides the mechanical upgrades, there are body modifications:

  • Custom cowl hood
  • Front grill/bumper billet inserts
  • Bushwhacker cutout fender flares
  • Shaved tailgate handle
  • Snugtop carpeted bedcover
  • Custom 26 gallon fuel cell recessed in the bed
  • AFE bed cover

Another cool feature is both the tailgate and cover are “connected to linear actuators and operated with a remote.” Not just cool, but piratical too for a truck of this height. Closing that tailgate could be a big struggle.

Cleaned up, it looks really, really sharp.

Overall the truck looks really cool. The owner notes two small dents: one under the door and a small crease in the top of the tailgate.

On the inside, there are a variety of billet coverings on the vents, power window switches and other places. It also has a Pioneer unit with a motorized 7″ TV.

This truck makes the trees seem smaller.

A big question with lifted trucks like this is how it drives. It isn’t a “caddy” according to the owner, but it drives just fine once you get used to it.

It is also a somewhat famous truck with air time on ESPN 2 and various awards.

All of this can be yours for $17k. Click here to bid.
