But F650 Supertrucks did. Twenty-two years ago, tired of tearing up F-350s every three years, Chris and George Sticker, owners of Southeast Utilities, were planning to replace two of their older trucks with a SuperDuty F-650. But then they decided to build their own. Once the truck was finished, someone called and offered money to drive it home. Then the business, based in Augusta, Georgia, took off and they manufactured 62 trucks later that year.

This monstrosity started out in life as a regular F-650 commercial truck. It got the load bed of an F-350, custom exhausts behind the cab, custom front and rear bumpers, and custom everything.

The intimidating machine is powered by a 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel engine with little over 300 horsepower and 750 pound-feet of torque. You were expecting much more than that, weren’t you? Well, it is underpowered, but it was never meant to be a racer.

The fuel tanks are on either side of the truck and each can receive 86 gallons (325 liters) for a total of 176 gallons (650 liters) of diesel. The system allows switching between the tanks. When you click the button that does that, you get to see the mileage left running on each tank. CLICK HERE TO READ FULL ARTICLE
