2014 Ford F-350 Super Duty King Ranch “Above The Law”

Filed in Ford Super Duty by on April 2, 2017 • views: 1536

The truck you see here was built by Josh Ellison, President of Royalty Core Truck Grilles and Accessories. When he’s not busy running Royalty Core, he’s having fun with his ATVs and motorcycles, and wanted to build the ultimate play vehicle for all his weekend excursions.

Josh has built countless custom trucks, and built his first SEMA vehicle back in 2007. For this build, Josh started with a 2014 Ford F-350 King Ranch. Since Josh’s passion revolves around all things off-road, he decided to adorn the truck with a one-of-a-kind bed and roof rack that helps transport his Polaris ATV side-by-side.

As it passes you by, you can’t help but notice how it towers over every other car on the road thanks to a custom, color-matched 15” Bulletproof Suspensions lift complete with Icon Bulletproof Reservoir shocks and springs that all combine to give it a dominant presence anywhere it goes. To add to its can’t-be-missed exterior, the truck is painted a brilliant Ruby Red (with a baked-on ceramic coating that gives a subtle deep gloss finish), and a set color-matched of 24” Hostile Black Hammered Wheels that feature a custom design on the dish wall with real smoke airbrushing inside 40” Interco M16 tires. A complete Kicker sound system provides the soundtrack for any commute and a set of waterproof exterior speakers keeps the music bumping during off-road trips.

Because of the extent of the massive build (almost $172K worth of mods were included), the entire process took about a year, but it was well worth it since the truck received the 2014 SEMA Founders Award given by Bushwacker and made national news.
