These days its hard to be unique and build something that really stands out from the crowd. Seem’s like so many builds just copy each other but change a few colors and add more lights.
“Favorite part was building the frame, I had an image in my head but was unsure how I was going to do it… So I fired up the grinder and went to town. This build has really pushed my limits with getting everything to work right and working the bugs out. At the end of the day its a dream come true to be able to say I have built this truck front to back, no bolt went untouched.”

Shelby 1000 F350
On March 8th-11th in Las Vegas, NV at the Vegas Bash (Team Shelby) this truck was presented for the world to see, check out the specs and details below of the new Shelby 1000 F350 Diesel edition.
1000 lb-ft Torque Stock!
From reviews the Shelby addition Ford F350 is suppose to produce 1000 lb-ft Torque emissions legal, but wait a minute, the 2018 F-250 & 350 series produce 935 lb-ft of torque! So what makes this truck anymore special other then the luxury of having the name Shelby?

Sum It All Up
In reality we all know this is just a luxury truck. You’re going to be paying for the name itself, when you could just go buy you a standard 2018 F350 and be just as good. I’m not knocking what they have done, the truck looks badass. I just think if they’re going to put the name Shelby on it, you would think the performance would be a little bit more Top Notch! I guess only time will tell if this truck will be something to be all hyped about.
