If you thought “ultimate work truck,” how do you envision it might be outfitted? The staff at Truckin’ magazine recently took up that challenge, and in their October and November 2012 issues ran a 2-part series on creating the “Ultimate Ford F-150 Work Truck”– with a little help from Harbor Freight Tools!
Taking a 2012 F-150 SuperCab in Part 1, they installed a cool bed slide, a monster ladder rack (capable of holding 1,000 lbs) and a sweet commercial-grade diamond-plate toolbox.
In Part 2, they went on a shopping spree at Harbor Freight Tools and picked up a Predator 4000 Watt Portable Generator– to which they installed a shock/motion-activated alarm in the back of the truck, lest any covetous individuals think bad thoughts– a 17 Ft. Type 1A Multi-Task Ladder as well as a full stock of tools for the toolbox:
- Central Forge 6″ Swivel Vise with Anvil
- Chicago Electric 12V Cordless 3/8″ Lithium Ion Drill
- Pittsburgh 6-piece Plier Set
- Pittsburgh 7-piece Screwdriver Set
- Pittsburgh 4-piece Adjustable Wrench Set
- Pittsburgh Professional Rip Hammer
- Hard Cap Gel Knee Pads
- Work Gloves
- 50-ft. x 12-ga. Extension Cord
Then to fortify their heavily-equipped new rig, they installed a ladder lock, and secured the toolbox and everything else with a myriad of cables and locks, including the hitch. The end result: a “certifiable worksite on wheels.”
