The Poor Dirt Farmer

2016 Ford F-450

When you’re involved in the construction and farming industries, you know the importance of a well built truck. To get a well built truck is one of the reasons Rich Szesnat sent his 2016 Ford F-450 PIckup from New Jersey to Iowa for a full build at the Kelderman Air Suspension headquarters. This F-450 was built for use hauling equipment around Rich’s farms and towing his boat from New Jersey to warmer waters in Florida. To handle heavier loads than even a conventional F-450 can stand, Rich picked out a 4-6” Air Suspension Lift Kit to make sure the truck never squats under any load and can maintain a proper, lifted stance. 37x13.50R22 Toyo Open Country M/T tires cover up the 22” American Force Independence dually wheels and still provide a comfortable ride for everyone inside thanks to the air suspension and Fox 2.0 remote reservoir shocks.   The outside of this work truck doesn’t look like many others on the road after Kelderman painted the factory Ford badges a matte black to match the finish on the wheels. The spray gun also had it’s way with the factory wood grain trim in the dash and door panels, so now the black trim blends nicely with the factory black leather seats. Color matched Fab Fours Premium Bumpers promote the work truck look as these heavy bumpers can accommodate a winch should Rich ever need it on the farm. Custom ‘Poor Dirt Farmer’ emblems were installed on the front and rear of the truck to promote his nickname and make sure everybody knows who is coming up behind them in this well-built Powerstroke. The final touch to baddest of all work trucks is done with Recon smoked lights in the headlights, tail lights, mirror lights and fender lights. To make sure there is never an absence of light when needed, (2) 30” Rigid Industries SR-Series Light bars were tucked neatly behind the factory Platinum grille bars and can be activated with one of the factory Auxiliary switches whenever Rich feels is necessary.   After the full Kelderman treatment, this Ford F-450 now makes it’s home transporting Rich around the East coast in air suspension comfort. If you can’t decide whether to build your truck for work or for play, take a page from the Poor Dirt Farmers playbook, and get the best of both worlds with Kelderman.
