A Mega Wild Eight-Door Ford F-250 on 48″ Tires!
Sometimes the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. That’s certainly the case when it comes to this amazing eight-door Ford pickup built using parts from three separate trucks.
Starting with a 2006 F-250 King Ranch, Larry Cooper of Wales, Iowa, stretched the frame six inches to accommodate the custom-built eight-door cab, before adding custom-fabricated bumpers and military-spec axles and tires measuring 48″ tall. The engine is a 6.0 liter diesel pushing 800 horsepower.
As if the eight-door cab and massive 27′ length wasn’t eye-catching enough, Larry finished his truck in a wild shade of bright lime green. There are several other features integrated into the build, like the hydraulic running boards to make ingress and egress easy despite the sheer height of this truck.
It’s clear that Larry built the truck to be more than just eye candy, and he fully intends to use it as a family hauler for his wife and children. It’s icing on the cake that the truck serves as great advertising for his welding and truck business that’s been going strong for over forty years.
The finished product looks amazing, and is something that looks like it would be equally at home cruising the strip or tearing up a muddy field. One thing’s for sure, it’d be hard to get stuck with those enormous tires!
