Overland Classifieds :: 2019 Ford F-450 DBL Severe Duty w/ Autarky Camper

The F-450 is a popular option for full-camper builds with previous features including this 2008 Camper and a 2019 Overland Build. The F-450’s list of attributes are impressive with a towing capacity of up to 35,000 pounds, a 7,640-pound max payload, seating for six, a luxurious interior, and a powerful 6.7-liter Power Stroke developing 935 pound-feet of torque. It’s also capable when optioned with Ford’s FX4 Off-Road Package which uprates the truck with skid plates, Hill Descent Control, high and low range, and a front locking differential. These credentials make the F-450 a fantastic platform for a go-anywhere home as demonstrated by Carl Montoya’s monster Nitro Gear Adventure RV. However, if you’re looking to create the most off-road capable F-450 then there are aftermarket conversions available from the likes of DBL Design. The company transforms the already rugged F-450 with their Severe Duty Conversion, turning this full-size truck into a military grade platform. Upgrades include forged aluminum super single wheel conversion, a 2.5-inch lift kit, custom Fox shocks, 6:17 gearing, and more. Today’s low mileage (53,000 miles) F-450 benefits from all of the above while showcasing Ford’s desirable Lariat Ultimate Package and a fully-equipped and removable Autarky camper.

From the Seller:

Our latest build is a truly awesome machine. It’s an international, overland-ready expedition vehicle built with the highest regarded industry components. The truck manages rough terrain smoothly and provides a luxury driving experience on the road. The entire camper runs off a single fuel source. Whenever you fuel up at a diesel station, you’re able to ensure your cooking and heating sources are topped off as well. The camper features a drop-out shower stall and slide-out toilet, providing the benefit of a fully-enclosed bathroom but utilizing far less space in the camper. The lithium-powered solar system keeps everything powered. The 6.7 Powerstroke engine moves the truck along swiftly with more than ample torque for even the steepest of mountain grades. Rough and rocky terrain? Deep desert sand dunes? Deep water crossings? Don’t worry. With 42-inch Continental tires on Beadlock wheels you can simply air down, engage your front locker, and continue to push through the most challenging terrain en route to your next dream overland destination. Once you’re back at camp, easily air up utilizing the onboard air system plumbed to each corner of the truck. Once home after a long adventure, you are free to simply lift the camper off the truck using the Rico lift jacks, leaving you with an off-road ready, flatbed work truck/tow machine.”
