On the Cover:
Our 2011 Super Duty is close to done in the Tow-Haul-Chase configuration we dreamed up for it. The truck has stayed true to its wolf-in-sheep's-clothing guidelines, and the 3M brushed steel wrap on the sides and stock front bumper only adds to that effect. Agustin Jimenez caught this shot of our Super Duty outside of Elizabeth Lake while following a "shortcut" through the mountains.
