With last week’s announcement of BDS Project Ascension, our 2017 Ford F250 Super Duty expedition truck the build got underway with a visit to Image First Graphics in Fort Wayne, IN to get the truck wrapped. The plan here was to promote the truck’s new aluminum body with a 2-tone metallic vinyl wrap using 3M’s brushed aluminum vinyl at the bottom and 3M brushed metallic black on top with a cosmic blue pin stripe to break up the 2 colors. There are still a few things to wrap like the grille and installing the BDS logos on the sides of the truck, but we’ve got to get the truck back in the shop to start on the rest of the transformation. From here the truck goes under the knife as the BDS team installed some extra altitude under the truck with some new suspension parts and start adding the other accessories on the way to the shop. We’ve got several upgrade including Fusion bumpers, Baja Designs LED lighting, Warn winch, Factor 55 flatlink, BDS 6″ suspension lift with FOX shocks and RECOIL traction bars, 38″ Nitto tires, 20″ XD wheels, Bestop Supertop, a custom rack system, Amp Research power steps and more coming up next. Stay tuned for updates as this build takes shape over the next 4 weeks for the 2016 SEMA Show.
