This customer has less than 20k in this whole truck. He purchased the chassis 2006 F550 4 door from an auction. Found a 1989 Challenger Aluminum 19ft Bed w/ a Tow Bar. He asked us to Stretch the Frame, Install a bigger gas tank, New Light Bar, New Wear Pads (which we couldn't buy - we had to make ourselves), Re-Wire the entire truck, new winch hoses & 7wire (We used our Tracking System for winch hoses. It's a less expensive alternative to the Jerr-Dan Winch Hose Track Kit I will post pics of it soon), and convert his Tow Bar into a Wheel Lift. We used a Jerr-Dan Valve Section and Control Hood & Handles. We retro fitted the Jerr-Dan Parts onto his Challenger Bed. When we finished his total cost for eveything, Truck, Flat Bed & Our Labor was well under 20k. Not bad for an 06. We charge $1400 to install Equipment!
