Someone fit 54-inch Tires on a 1993 Ford F-350!

54-inch

This story and photography were originally published by, Four Wheeler Network, and this is my take on it. You know how it goes, the second you get a new truck (or new to you), you immediately start looking for ways to customize it and make it your own. Most of the time, that involves new wheels and tires!

When a massive 1993 Ford F-350 work truck went unsold for a while, it was only logical for the owner to build it again! After all, what’s a truck guy to do when there’s an “extra” truck just laying around, no? It can only go unused for so long before you start thinking of so many reasons why it would make sense to dump more money into it.

After fixing the sluggish Ford 351 V-8 and a C6 three-speed transmission, getting it to run properly was the top priority. After some more tinkering, it was obvious that it simply wasn’t going to be a racing truck, so alternate plans were designed to make it a fun truck nonetheless. Then things got interesting…

That’s when the thought of mounting 54-inch Mickey Thompson tires on the truck and taking it off-roading came to be. Plenty of cutting and customizing had to be done in order to actually fit the 20-inch wheels and 54-inch tires on the F-350, but in the end it was possible, and it even looked good. Sort of…

Other upgrades performed on the truck to make it kick-ass on the trails were: 4.10s and Detroit Lockers in the Dana 60 front, and Sterling 10 1/4 rear for the 37s, a Skyjacker 6-inch lift, and a PSC full-hydro power steering system.

It may not have been a cheap (re)build, but it certainly looks like a heck of a project, and a ton of fun!
