Jamie Dean's Truck Next Door

Deception Bay, Queensland, Australia

April 2017 PowerStroke, Feature My Truck, Feature DT Staff

This is my 2002 Ford F250 7.3L turbo diesel V8 with a 4-speed automatic transmission. 

Modifications include:

  • Buds Customs steel winch bar with a 13000-pound winch and 43-inch light bar
  • In-house fabrication 5-inch custom stainless snorkel and airbox
  • roof-mounted 50-inch light bar
  • Skyjacker 6-inch lift kit and 6-8-inch Fox shocks
  • 37-inch Mickey Thompson Claws on 17x9-inch XD rims
  • Xro custom-made sliders
  • a 4-inch stainless dump pipe into a 5-inch straight-through exhaust into twin 5-inch stacks built into the headboard of the tray
  • TS 6-position chip (up to 140hp gain)
  • rear ARB air locker
  • Endless air system with 5L air tank
  • ARB roof console with UHF
  • ball bearing Garret turbo upgrade (currently pushing 30psi)
  • GPS head unit and full sound system upgrade

The truck was bought as a daily driver but since then has been retired to a beach and bush truck with occasional touring. I often hear on tracks that the truck’s too big, but I find the size on tracks helps me not get caught in everyone else’s ruts!
