The rig sports Fab Fours bumpers front and rear. The front bumper holds three Soltek 8-inch lights and a set of Hella lights, while the rear bumper holds a pair of Baja Designs Fuego lights. Both bumpers sport a pair of D-rings and the front bumper holds a Warn 16.5 winch. Other exterior mods include a Keystone fiberglass Heat Extractor Good Hood and a set of Bushwacker Cut Out fender flares over heavily modified fender openings. The big SD rolls on 46x19.5-20 Mickey Thompson Baja Claws mounted on 20x12 Dick Cepek DC-1 aluminum wheels.

"Four wheeling has been a part of my life ever since I can remember," says David Anderson, 45, of Hebron, Kentucky. He's not exaggerating. By the time he was 14, Anderson had already accumulated 38 First-place trophies earned in various off-highway racing competitions. Over the years he has also built numerous rigs, and his truck building continues today. This '01 Ford Super Duty F-350 you see here is his latest creation. Initially he purchased the truck to haul building supplies as he constructed a new house. "I bought an '01 F-150 to use in building our new home, but when I tried to put a pallet of bricks in the bed and found that the 1/2-ton wouldn't handle the load, I knew the truck wasn't for me," Anderson notes. So he traded it in on this F-350. After the home construction was completed, Anderson went to work on a new construction project, the F-350, and you can see the result. Anderson is quick to point out that even though the truck looks show-quality, it's used daily and never trailered. He says that in addition to towing a boat and hauling dirt bikes, it's routinely used to haul family members to work in snowy weather and it has even been used to rescue postal and local sheriff's department vehicles from deep snow.
