THE POOR CATTLE FARMER

FORD F-450

It is often said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. With over 25 years of building air suspension systems for heavy-duty trucks, Kelderman has grown accustomed to a certain level of imitation. This situation started with someone, just like you, browsing the Project Vehicles section of our website for ideas to use on a custom truck build. When Steve Landers read the Project Vehicle article for 'The Poor Dirt Farmer', a 2016 Ford F-450 customized from head to toe at our Oskaloosa, Iowa facility, he knew it was exactly what he wanted. Steve picked up a 2017 Ford F-450 Platinum Pickup as a foundation for the build and gave Kelderman the simple task of turning the 'Poor Dirt Farmer' truck into something fit for a 'Poor Cattle Farmer'. The focal point of the build was the Kelderman 5-6" Air Suspension Lift Kit. This provided the big dually truck with enough clearance for 37" tires without sacrificing the truck's capability or an ounce of ride quality. With the truck now equipped with a taller stance, 22" dually wheels from American Force Wheels were installed with 37x13.50R22 Toyo Open Country M/T tires to make sure this truck provided all the off-road traction a farmer could need. Steve wanted some extra insurance just in case this heavy truck needed to provide a helping hand to those that get stuck off-road. Kelderman's line of Alpha Series front and rear bumpers were installed with a WARN 16.5ti winch, Monster Hooks, Inc. Swivel Hooks, and Rigid Industries lights to provide the industry's most versatile and most capable bumper. The final step to the build was custom paint...and lots of it. Kelderman removed nearly everything on the truck including the front grille, factory emblems, side badges, mirrors, and more. The result was a twin to the Poor Dirt Farmer truck and exactly what Steve was searching for.
