And what's not to like? This 'roided-out rig boasts an impressive 10-inch over stock lift, featuring a custom four-link suspension, and none other than Fabtech Dirt Logic 4.0 coilovers at each corner. To keep the truck rolling, a set of custom American Force rollers was selected to set the truck apart from any imitators. Up front, 22x12-1/2-inch wheels have been bolted up, while the rear setup is just a bit different. The American Force wheels have been downsized in width to a 22x8-inch variation. Well, there had to be enough room for the rolling foursome, but more on that in bit. As for the tire selection, Riley opted for Toyo Open Country M/T 40/15.50R22 tires to wrap around the six wheels.
That's right, you are looking at an original Fabtech dualie conversion. If that wasn't blatantly apparent, take a closer look. What you are witnessing is a custom Dana S-110 rear axle fitted to the frame, which has been narrowed 18 inches to comply with Riley and Co.'s need to feed the rear drivetrain-with an extra helping of chrome and rubber. Fabtech handled all the necessary labor and aggravation that went along with the custom framework, but the end result completely makes up for the hours upon hours spent on the fabrication. Don't feel too bad for them yet, because that is the type of relentless research and execution that has earned them a spot under the limelight. The 6.4L Power Stroke turbodiesel Ford powerplant keeps Fabtech's monster machine running fast and vicious with a little help from Foote Axles and Power Train Industries, as they installed the 4.88 ratio Precision Gear ring and pinion. Riley certainly wasn't playing games when the time came to give people something to buzz about.
Also tucked away inside the interior is a Katzkin covered set of front and rear seats. Silver, carbon nickel, and light slate leather was used in the upholstery process-and with good reason-as it incorporates the exterior's stormy motif. The same hues also hang around overhead in the headliner like dark, cloud-littered skies. All American Auto Upholstery in Corona, California, is responsible for the excellent stitchwork featured inside the Power Storm's cavernous cab. The dash and door panel details have received a unique chrome vacuum metal coating, which gives off a sparkling shine-something not often seen, as color-matched paint seems to be the rule of thumb in this department. Just think of the shine as this cloud's silver lining.
