Jake Tipton's Truck Next Door

Carlsbad, N.M.

February 2016 Feature My Truck DT Staff

My truck started as a basic 2006 Ford F-350, completely stock without any modifications. When the truck blew two pistons, it was time to build something bigger and better than before, a real head turner. Working with Reliable Automotive, I added a new Ford short block motor, Big Dog Fire Ring cylinder heads, ARP head studs, and while deep in the engine we also added 70hp injectors, a Phat Shaft Turbo, aFe cold air intake, and an SCT5015 tuner with custom gear head tunes. Under the truck we added a Dirt Logic Performance 6-inch lift from Fabtech, front 4.0 Dirt Logic 2.25 shocks, Fuel Throttle Wheels rapped in 35x12.5x17 Cooper STT Tires. In my Iron Bull bumper I’ve also added a 12,000 pound winch and PIAA fog light to finish it off. I use my truck as a daily driver and to pull my camper to oil rigs where I work as a consultant.
