There's no denying that offroad trucks are gaining in popularity. But check out the new breed of style and luxury. Dennis and Lisa's trick F-150 may be the look of things to come. The truck has a total of 10 inches of lift thanks to a Fabtech 7" suspension lift and 3" body lift. The suspension also features Fabtech high performance front shocks, Rancho RS9000 5-way adjustable shocks in the rear, and Rancho RS5000 front end steering stabilizer. The lift allows plenty of room to clear 18" Boss wheels and 35x12.50x18 BFGoodrich Mud Terrain tires. To keep the truck moving, the gears have been changed to 4.11:1 to compensate for the larger wheel and tire combo. The truck also has Magna Flow 3" exhaust, with 3" tail pipe to 3.5" tip. An Airforce One intake system can be found under the hood.

The outside of the truck has a power sliding rear window, Trenz billet grilles, Gaylord's Tonneau cover and Line-X spray-in bedliner. It also has the Mark III treatment, consisting of custom wheel flares, side moldings, and running boards, along with the Mark III Air Dam with fog lights, tail light covers, and bug guard. A polished billet fuel door was added. Once inside you'll find leather seats and console, real wood trim, wood overhead console, and husky floor liners.
