The 6-Door Excursion Limo
Photos simply do not do this monster Ford justice. I should know, I took ‘em. It is no exaggeration to say that the sheer scale and custom detail work on this project is jaw-dropping. This definitely is a Showstopper and at a curb weight of 11,000 lbs., its no pushover, either. I asked Trevor for a little background info on his big beautiful behemoth:
“Our shop has been building custom trucks for several years now. All of the trucks we build always end up going back with customers. So when people come into the shop wanting to know what we can build it is hard to just show them pictures. So we wanted a staple piece for our shop and decided to build a full-blown, custom built-from-scratch one off truck that could stay at the shop for customers to see, who were interested in having work done.
So this was the outcome of that. The truck started from scratch with just a bare cab from an excursion and a bare cab from a newer super duty. We were originally just going to do a 6.71 conversion excursion but decided while we were at it, why not make it six doors? The idea took off from there. It took about a full year to build. Being a company based out of California we needed to make sure and keep its emissions intact as well. So we retrofitted all the exhaust and sensors and made them work, as well as cutting in the rear fuel door and rear fenders from a new super duty pick up into the rear so it would match the front end and also have a Fill port for a diesel tank and a DEF tank. Engine is pretty much stock, being from California there’s not a lot we can do or is carb compliant on a new truck. And being as we own a shop, I didn’t want to be tied up in the deleting categories.
Interior is all new king ranch interior. We added buckets to the 3rd row and kept the original rear bench as the new 4th row and had them recovered to match the fronts. The entire truck is custom built in our shop, from frame and suspension, the stretch, body and paint, it was all done in our shop. No outsourcing.”
