F550 Super Duty 4wd with aluminum flatbed...!


Recommended Posts

I ran across this stunning one owner, garage kept F550 with a factory installed 11 foot flatbed. I think it would probably tow three Ollies without sweating, but OTH you could remove your LE1 hull and bolt it down to the truck bed. If you also removed the headache rack, it would stick out the back perhaps 2 feet, but it would be pretty cool IMHO. Put a big horizontal propane bottle underneath the bed, along with a lot of extra water tanks and storage. No more worries about hitching up.... I recall seeing an Elite 1 that was added to a longer commercial Mitsubishi FUSO bed. It looked bizarre, but this truck would definitely work for me.

Along with the rest of the truck - it really has some serious running boards too.

Nice catch JD. It is something I have been looking for myself - I can't tell from the pic - is it 4wd? The link shows to b removed.

Pretty sure an EII would fit with a  little engineering effort.

I guess I should have copied the entire ad. Yes, 4wd, garage kept and pampered. I don’t think an LE2 hull would be practical, it would stick out the back 7 feet. You would have to build a huge bumper extension to be legal. And it would look pretty strange.

How about an Escape fifth wheel hull?

Saw one a few years back - Not a bad design. I just didn't like the interior design. An older couple were towing with a 1/2 ton truck.
