Before you read through this feature, grab your stack of old OFF-ROAD magazines and find our August 2008 issue. On the cover, we featured Jared and Austin Evelo's pair of Ford Explorers tearing up the Barstow desert. As promised, we now bring you their little brother Ryan's '68 Ford F-100, built with only one thing in mind: Going bigger than his big bros. Having previously built both a Ford Explorer and a Ranger, Ryan became very familiar with the Ford line and decided to try his hand, and welder, at this old school fullsize.

Equal-length kingpin I-beams were built by Ryan using 1-inch uniballs at the frame pivot. The beams were built using 1.5-inch DOM tube and 1/8-inch steel plate on both sides. Ryan is using stock '68 F-100 spindles on 7/8-inch kingpins. A very minimalist front bumper and skid plate protects the front end from harsh landings.
