BDS F-250 Build Brings Back the Regular Cab

BDS F-250 Build

In a Super Crew-crazed world, BDS Suspension reminds us why we loved regular cab pickups in the first place.

If you’ve been a truck fan for more than a decade or so, you undoubtedly remember the time when most folks drove regular cab pickups. In fact, this was the case for the first several decades of the truck’s very existence. Why? Because trucks used to be used for one purpose, and one purpose only: work. If you needed to haul the family somewhere, you took the car.

But times have really changed. Head to a dealer lot today, and you’ll have a hard time finding any regular cabs on the lot. And if you do, they’re probably base model work trucks. The good old days of having your crush sitting next to you on your bench seat are long gone. Today, giant consoles make romance difficult, and kids in the back seat make it even harder. But BDS Suspension‘s latest F-250 build has us clamoring for the good old days.

We spotted the giant orange regular cab F-250 build, dubbed “Project SD126” at the 2017 SEMA show and immediately fell in love. Not just because it’s a regular cab, but because it’s even undergone a short bed conversion. And the short wheelbase Super Duty sports a killer stance thanks to a BDS Suspension (of course!), 20×11 Stazworks Cheyenne 8 wheels, and 42×14.50×20 BF Goodrich Baja TA KR2-S tires.

The bodacious body has also been treated to McNeil Racing 6″ fiberglass fenders and bedsides, an RK Sport ram air hood, Rogue Racing bumpers, and Rigid LED lighting. The result? Easily one of our favorite builds at SEMA, and one that has us reminiscing hard. All it needs now is a bench seat instead of those PRP Racing Enduro recliners. Sorry, kids!
