Fab Fours Ford F-350 Super Duty ‘Daylighter’ Is Much More Than Just A Pretty Face: Video

Old school truck people have one major complaint with a lot of the fancy, expensive and highly-modified trucks running around today – namely, they don’t go off-road. This new breed of lifted trucks that never venture off-road even stemmed an entirely new category of vehicle – the mall crawler. So when we first laid eyes on Fab Fours’ Ford F-350 Super Duty project truck named “Daylighter,” we immediately assumed that it was just another on-road-only show pony. But oh, were we ever wrong.

Sure, this regular cab, long bed Ford F-350 certainly looks like something that belongs in a booth at SEMA. But rarely do we ever see trucks with this abundance of visual upgrades tackle rocky trails, too. And this truck has plenty of said upgrades, starting with a rather large eight-inch Sky Jacker lift, which makes room for custom 20 inch wheels wrapped in massive Interco 44 inch Bogger tires.

A full array of KC lighting is sure to light up the desert, including a set of classic Daylighters (hence the truck’s nickname) and a few Blue Rock lights. Fab Fours provided the rest of the fancy bodywork for this F-350, including its open fender system, Grumper, ViCowl, rear bumper, and headache rack. And in case the driver gets in some trouble, there’s a Warn Zeon 12-S winch up front to bail them out.

The stock Ford 6.7L Power Stroke diesel engine has been fortified with a GDP tuner and AFE air intake for a little extra power. And underneath, this Ford F-350 has been fitted with an MBRP exhaust, Yukon Gear front locker, and PSC hydro-assist. The latter two components, along with the hardcore tires, serve as clues as to what this Super Duty does on the weekends.

Yes, this seemingly show-only Ford F-350 routinely tackles the tough terrain of the legendary Moab Desert in Utah, and there’s even video evidence to prove it. The super-long, super-wide Super Duty isn’t the traditional choice for such a task, but that doesn’t matter to the folks at Fab Fours. And we bet that the big diesel heavy-duty truck turned more than a few heads at the Easter Jeep Safari, where it was surrounded by a slew of Wranglers.
