Bilstein provided the 7100 series reservoir shocks, while the chassis incorporates multi-link front suspension and leaf-spring rear suspension.

The ride is lit with KC HiLites headlights and front-end rear fog lights, with body and paint by Adam Krause, owner of The Refinery. Method Race Wheels’ 17x9 beadlock wheels are paired with Toyo Open Country MT tires to finish off the ensemble.

Inside, a custom roll cage is outfitted by Recovery Room Hot Rod Interiors and with Boom Mat sound deadening. One-off Classic Instruments gauges can be found in the F-100 dash.
