The F-350 is already a heavy truck from the factory. Now imagine loading it down with a utility-bed loaded with tools, an oversized 60-gallon diesel tank, an 80-gallon race fuel tank, and more. Carrying all that are Fox Racing Shox 2.5 remote reservoir shocks working in conjunction with ICON 4-inch-lift coils on both identically-built trucks. The team installed Airlift airbag systems with onboard remote controls in the rear. The systems are completely adjustable, depending on load weight and desired ride height. The gearing was also upped to 4.30:1 in both front and rear axles, and Mag-HyTec deep transmission pans keep the terrain from killing the transmissions over long desert miles. The trucks may look clean but they do more than their fair share of work in the desert. Chasing a race truck around is work for any vehicle; now imagine driving this tank around the desert. There is sometimes just as much work keeping chase trucks on the road as there is with their much faster counterparts.
