Today I wanted to discuss the building of the Ultimate Work Truck. This is a project I have had on my mind since I sold my favorite truck while we still lived in Missouri. I really miss that truck and haven’t had a truck that can compete since then. This is not going to be a truck that will be purchased new, nor will it have a bunch of bling added. Im looking for a real work truck and be able to build it on a budget. I only have a couple of requests:
I wanted to start a project called Project Hoss. It’s about a new truck that we purchased to work here at the house. New to me that is. It’s a 1977 Ford Crew Cab. Because we have six kids I needed something with extra space so the crew cab was essential for a work truck
So finally have some time to give a follow up on Project HOSS. The bed has been attached using custom fabricated mounts. The power comes from hydraulics powered by electric.
I previously mentioned that we were taking on a new project. With Spring around the corner and recent move under our belts, we were in need for a new truck to handle all our needs. You can find our requirements here. So I have been on the lookout. One thing I really wanted to do was keep our vehicles near the same. My wife really loves her Suburban, so the chances of her changing were slim. So I decided to find a truck that was similar. I went searching on Craigslist and found exactly what I was looking for!
