BODYWORK/TRIM


Let’s start with looks. A few years back, the ever-escalating truck wars inspired a rash of Medium Duty pickup conversions. Offerings like Kodiak and TopKick duallies, the International CXT and the F650 and F750 became staples of showing, towing and comfortable travel. That’s pretty much where this F650 currently rides. At the front of the truck, a mirrored steel bumper frames a chrome grille, traditional headlights and a tilting fiberglass hood that kicks off the aforementioned Terminator motif. Behind that hood, a familiar Super Duty cab seats factory-tint glass between a factory visor, factory tow mirrors, chrome C-pillar grabs and hardware for the truck’s satellite TV. Beneath that cab, painted and diamond-plated steps hide large fuel tanks. Behind those steps, a lined dually bed centers a color-keyed toolbox between tubular rails and a sliding glass window. And at the back of that bed, a Terminator-branded tailgate caps a chrome dually bumper, which centers a small rearview camera over large mud flaps and a coated Reese Hitch. Most of the truck’s vivid visuals come courtesy of completely removable vinyl that was freshly applied by Greensboro, North Carolina’s DeDona Tint & Sound. The only exception to that rule is the painted billboards on the aforementioned steps.

ENGINE/DRIVETRAIN

As the name suggests, the F650 is Ford’s offering in the Class 6 Medium Duty truck market. That means the truck’s beefy, tow-anything frame has straight, C-channel rails made of 50,000 psi steel. That frame rolls on 8,500 lb. Dana Spicer axles, which span the distance between six 22.5-inch Accuride alloys and fresh meats that were installed just 2,000 miles back. A Ford-supplied air suspension helps counter the exceptional ballast resistance of that stiff frame/tall tire combo. Stops come courtesy of 4-wheel disc brakes, which are augmented with standard ABS and Bosch air-assisted parking. Power-assisted steering is present and accounted for. An electronically shifted Allison 5-speed sets everything in motion. And power is provided by a stalwart, 5.9 liter Cummins ISB turbo diesel. Presently, the truck shows 88,632 miles, which is essentially break-in time on an engine that’s known to travel up to 500,000 clicks. And everything benefitted from a complete service that was conducted roughly 1,000 miles ago.

INTERIOR

When you step up to this level, trucks are all about comfort and utility. That’s why it’s so refreshing to hop in the cab of this purposeful but nicely appointed Ford. The stars of the show are leather, power-adjustable buckets and a broad vinyl bench. In front of those thrones, a Flint Gray dash hangs factory telemetry, factory cruise and electronic transmission controls beside navigation-equipped Kenwood audio, a Sirius satellite receiver and hardware for requisite trailer brakes. Below that dash, Flint Gray carpet floats heavy-duty floor mats around a small, factory-spec console. At the sides of that carpet, wood-trimmed door panels found factory speakers beneath power windows, power door locks and power mirrors. And the driver rules the road through a beefy, leather-wrapped steering wheel, which laps a standard tilting column.
