2009 Ultimate Adventure 2002 Ford F250 Super Duty Fabrication - The Ultimate Ranch Truck

The build of the Ultimate Adventure Ranch Truck has been very detailed and intricate for the last few months-it's hard to imagine it's almost over. A blur of sleepless nights in Offroad Design's shop and an incalculable amount of high-tech and creative fabrication have brought to fruition one amazing truck.

What started as a budget Ultimate Adventure truck had quickly progressed into one of the most impressive full-sized adventure trucks we ever built. James and Stephen Watson put all their efforts in the truck and unleashed their crew of talented fabricators on the rig. Nothing was just thrown together. Every inch of tubing that went on the truck was CAD designed. Every component bolted on had been we ll thought out. All their efforts and work are a testament to the Watsons' dedication to four-wheeling and the quality product of Offroad Design.

The UA truck needs to be indestructible; however, it's nearly impossible to build a rig that's damage-resistant and breakproof given the type of extreme terrain we travel during Ultimate Adventure. We can only build the truck as tough as possible and hope for the best. On the Ultimate Adventure in 2008, the Watsons didn't experience any breakage on their truck. That's why we chose them this year for our build.

Here in Part 4 we are winding down on the fabrication and are just about ready for the trail. Keep your eyes peeled for Part 5, which will contain more detailed fabrication, the complete specifications of the truck and components used to build it, and an in-depth review of how the Ultimate Ranch Truck performed on the trails and highway.
