Trucks Next Door: Elijah Lumpkins

March 2021 Feature My Truck

This article originally appeared in the Winter 2020 issue.

Builds like these are always impressive, especially when they’re owned by someone who’s still in his teens. This 2005 6.0L Power Stroke Ford F250 is owned by Elijah Lumpkins, an 18-year-old who lives in the greater Dallas, Texas, area. For a truck that doesn’t have as much work done to it under the hood, it’s sure to blow you away, especially with its 6-inch Fabtech lift kit, 26-inch Stealth Forged wheels, and 37-inch Venom tires. The suspension is fully powder-coated in gun metal gray (same color as the truck) and metallic candy teal, and the truck also features 24 Mercy white LED rock lights, an Infinite Offroad LED light on each wheel, JL door speakers, and a bed carpet. With all of this, the truck is well-outfitted for the off-road. The shiny powder-coating was completed by Texas Customs of Weatherford, Texas.

“I’m just 18 and chasin’ the dream,” he says. “Currently, my truck is used for a job where I sell and service air compressors. I pick compressors and other similar machines up and drop them off to wherever they need to go.” Though he uses the 2005 Super Duty for work on a day-to-day basis, it certainly cleans up very well and makes a stellar show truck.

We figured it was time to kick our off-road adventures up a notch, so we added the BDS Suspension Coilover 4-Link 4-inch lift kit on our Power Stroke. This kit brings tried-and-true stability, strength and caster control over factory radius arm setups...
