2002 Ford F350 Crew Cab Dually Super Duty 4x4 - Ten-Lug Titanic
Running 47-inch tires is becoming more common (hey, we did it!). What isn't common is seeing them on a vehicle that is reliable and strong enough to be daily-driven and used for tow duty and off-road. Bill Sorlie's F-350 dually Super Duty may have started out as one of the most common tow vehicles on the road but now it is certainly in a class of its own.
The now-defunct White Motorsports originally built the suspension on this truck, and though it towers over our own Super Duty, it still seems to be a good daily driver for Bill to get to work and back from his motorcycle shop. We found it a bit hard to believe that Bill uses a truck this big for more than just show duty, but sure enough he showed up at our annual Heavy Metal Weekend with a giant trailer in tow. We've also seen him out on the Southern California highways numerous times (it's easy to spot this one in oncoming traffic) and in the dirt up in Gorman and out in Oceano Dunes.
