Utility 1 is a 2011 Ford F-550 Superduty Texas Edition. It has lifted suspension, crew cab, all wheel drive, front tow hooks, a towing capacity of 16000Ibs, 11000Ibs payload capacity, Bull Bars, heavy duty bumper, dually tires, 2 Federal Signal PA640s, and 2 Federal Signal Rumblers. Plans call for a lighting package and graphics to be added in the next month. This truck currently runs out of Station 4, strategically placed so it can get to Stations 1, 2, and 5 in about the same time. This allows a quicker response time when it needs to pull a trailer or pick up a load from another station.
When I set out to build this truck, I wanted to represent everything I think of when I think of the Texas trucks I see everyday. I think I did a fairly good job.

i don t remember ever seeing closer a reproduction of a ford pick up before, only thing that hurts it, is the unclear windsheild, you should put another one, snot it or something, there has to be a solution, check my trucks for inspiration if you like, i ll need help for a fire tanker truck later! good work!
I think that pick-up trucks are rather difficult to build well. Full size apparatus is far easier. With that in mind, I am impressed with this truck. It is among the best pickups that I have seen on MOC Pages or Brickshelf. Keep up the good work.
