I kept spotting photos of this truck online that always seemed to take me to a Pinterest post with no information. Intrigued, I set out to find more photos and information on it. I eventually came up with a name, and that lead me to a facebook page.

The 1977 Ford F-150 you see here is owned by Rob Terhaar of Dyna-Fab Offroad from Molalla, Oregon.

The truck is powered by a 460 CID big block with Holley injection. The transfer case is outfitted with a Northwest Fabworks (NWF) BlackBox reduction box with cable shifters for more low end grunt.

The truck uses a 4-link suspension and coilovers, and currently rides on AxleTech planetary axles with front and rear steering. Prior to the AxleTech axles, the truck was running on a Dana 60 front, and a shaved GM 14-bolt rear with disc brakes and chromoly axles.

Tire wise, the truck has ran 44-inch Pitbull’s, moved up to 49-inch Iroks, and then finally to 54-inch Mickey Thompson Baja Claws (after the planetary axle upgrade).

The trucks nose (hood, fenders, grill, etc) were narrowed, and the bed was narrowed to match.

Just how big is a 54-inch tire?

How much does it snow in Oregon? Remember, those are 54-inch tires.
