Truck Hero created the Ultimate Tailgate Truck. Starting with a 2019 Ford F-350 Lariat and designed by Truck Hero engineers, this unique truck debuted at the 2018 SEMA Show and hit the truck show circuit through 2019. The base vehicle, a 6,814-actual-mile 2019 Ford F-350 Lariat features a crew cab, dual rear wheel, 8-foot bed with stock 6.7-liter diesel engine (with 935 ft/lbs of torque and 450hp) and an automatic transmission. Down low is the theme, with the 2WD chassis lowered by ARFT’s Speed Shop’s custom dropped air suspension with a 4-link rear end and Air Lift Performance 3P air management system on all four corners.

Black, copper and smooth, this truck shines thanks to the Custom Cars & Concepts program at Michigan’s Washtenaw Community College, with students shaving door handles and applying the mirror-perfect AkzoNobel Modern Classikk black paint. Accents include a custom billet Ford oval and fender badges, all copper-plated. Other added touches include a Ford Performance tailpipe, BedRug bedliner, Husky Liners all-weather floor mats, ARP 12-point fasteners and, to let them know you’ve arrived, a Kleinn Automotive train horn. This truck rides on custom Fuel Off-Road Dually Maverick 24-inch wheels that are copper-plated with black painted spokes and baby moon caps, wrapped in Dilente Bandit 285/40R24 tires.

To top it off, an assembly of custom tailgating elements were designed that package under the truck bed cover and behind the tailgate to put on a complete party. The truck bed houses a remote-controlled, articulating 65-inch TV, custom bed slide with integrated inlaid wood game table and Maxxsonics audio speakers stuffed into UnderCover dual SwingCases (also remote-controlled), all covered up by Extang’s Solid Fold 2.0 hard folding bed cover. On the back of the truck is a custom copper mount with an articulating Yeti cooler and grill to top off the perfect tailgating weekend.

Barrett-Jackson has decided that entire sale price of this truck will benefit Building Homes for Heroes, which has been at the forefront of making a significant difference in the lives of wounded American service members from the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts and their families since 2006. The organization gifts mortgage-free homes that meet the needs of the men and women who have selflessly served our country. These homes not only help to remove the family’s financial burden, they help to restore the individual’s freedom, and enable the veteran to lead a more independent and productive civilian life. To further assist veterans, the organization has added programs, including financial planning services, family funding and emergency support.
