Big Blue Part VI

We've Got Power!

July 2013 Build Brady L. Kay


The 2002 Ford F-250 Super Duty project is all about taking this strong 7.3L engine and creating a fuel-efficient towing machine. With so many 7.3L engines still running strong, we wanted to show that with a few specific upgrades you could take an older Ford and breathe new life into her. What we found was this Super Duty, which we quickly dubbed Big Blue, based on its raised look and color. The first installment of this series started in the October 2011 issue and we're just about where we want to be with this truck.



Recap


In the June issue we took care of a few cosmetic upgrades with the help from the guys at Powerlabs Diesel in Idaho Falls, Idaho. The biggest and most noticeable was the Royalty Core grille that now gives our project truck its own distinctive look and feel. And because the frame, mesh, studs, logos and hardware are all made from 100 percent stainless steel, we're confident this grille is going to continue looking good for a very long time.


We also installed PPE's HID Headlight kit that is three times brighter than the stock halogens. Plus we upgraded to a set of YellowTop deep cycle batteries from OPTIMA to ensure we'll always have the power we need and this includes future upgrades.

Now this doesn’t have to be an immediate family member, but in a lot of cases it is. It could easily be your uncle, a cousin or even your niece or nephew that is serving today...
