truck is the culmination of five year's work.
Called Project Responder, the truck was created from an '87 Ford F250
which was completely disassembled and then built from the ground
up. The goal of this undertaking was to create a show truck
that will be
equipped for nearly any emergency to which a volunteer firefighter
called upon to respond. The project ended up with over 140 sponsors.
The truck has a custom built 460 under the hood mated to a custom heavy
duty C6 tranny. The suspension has over ten inches of lift
setting on 36" tires. It has a Stahl service body in place of
the bed with
which to carry it's emergency and rescue tools as well as a self
contained firefighting skid unit in the bed which holds 150 gallons of
along with a pump and 75' of hose. It's custom electrical
boasts a high output alternator putting out over 200 amps along with a
3,000 prosine power inverter. It also has a plethora of
lights including strobes, LED's and halogen warning lights along with
two electronic and one mechanical siren. The list of
and modifications are too numerous to list but you can get the full
from the Project Responder website.
