1996 Ford F-250 - Black And Blue

Luke Gibson's original intent for his Ford looked nothing like what you see before you. Looking to build a vehicle that would haul his friends quickly around the desert, Luke's project began with a fullsize '96 Ford F-250. The large cabin space provided ample room needed to transport four large guys around comfortably and still leave room for necessary off-road equipment. As the transformation began, Spirit Design and Development out of El Cajon, California, quickly turned a mild-mannered machine into a get-the-heck-out-of-my-way rocket ship.
