An #SDHQoriginal Short Bed Super Duty Dually

When a customer comes to us with a special request, we figure out how to make it happen. SDHQ is not your normal custom shop, of course we enjoying doing suspension, wheels, tires, but the unusual projects are exciting and we love a challenge. This customer came to us requesting that we turn his 2015 Ford Super Duty long bed dually to a short bed, so we made it happen and completely overhauled the whole truck. We’re pretty sure there is no other truck in the world like this one! Check out this #SDHQoriginal.

Chopping frames and making custom sized beds is nothing new for SDHQ but this was the first time we got to do it on a Super Duty dually. A job like like this is not for your average shop. It takes skill and very trained technicians to pull this off while preserving the integrity and strength of the frame, it’s components and maintaining factory ride. We accomplished exactly this



We knew we needed a suspension system that would improve performance and achieve the aggressive look we were going for. We went with Icon Suspension components on the front and rear. The Icon Stage 2 Coilover Suspension System with the Icon 4 Link System up front enhances the articulation of the front suspension and improves handling of the truck by eliminating the large radius arm bushing and replacing it with competition grade spherical bearings in each link. The new components far out perform stock yet the truck rides smooth and has a stock feel. We think the truck turned out pretty bad!

ICON Vehicle Specific shocks are designed to provide superior dampening control that helps prevent harsh bottoming out and controls the suspension when compressing at high velocity. These shocks allow for a defined tune and provide a smooth ride on or off-road. 


This truck called for serious lighting and we equipped it with our SDHQ Exclusive A-Pillar Mounts and all the Vision-X lighting we could cleanly fit. We mounted Vision X Light cannons up top on the A-Pillars and Vision X LPX light bars, Vision X PX fog lights in the SDHQ Custom front bumper/ aluminum valance insert for a flush, clean yet extremely functional set up. Check out more Vision X lighting on our site.  

A truck like this needed an aggressive, high performing wheel and tire package. 20″ Fuel Off-Road Maverick wheels with 37″ Toyo RT Tires were the perfect combo.
