Inside the huge Super Duty, a wild interior serves as an audio and video command center. It wasn't always this way, however. Driving coast-to-coast the truck was dropped off at a shop and promises were made. Thirteen-months and thousands of dollars later, the interior still wasn't finished and the truck was trailered back to the east coast. The search for a competent shop concluded at Mobile Audio Concepts. Custom fiberglass door panels, dash, center console and rear sub box were completed by the guys at Mobile Audio Concepts in Evans, Georgia. The wraparound dash has the feeling of a cockpit with the use of Dakota Digital gauges on the driver and passenger side. Everything was painted to match thanks to Kenny Rayburn, of Custom Inc. Kicker audio fills the confines of the Ford with ear-busting decibel levels. Housed in the center console are four Kicker 10-inch L7 square subs. One 8-inch L7 sub was mounted atop the dash in front of a triple stack of Dakota Digital gauges. Powering all of this subsonic mayhem are two Kicker ZX 1500.1 amps. Mid and high frequency levels are equally well represented courtesy of more Kicker speakers. Five sets of RS 61/2-inch Kicker components and one pair of 5 1/4-inch RS components fill the cab with all the sound Jonathan can handle. Powering these loud speakers are a combination of two Kicker ZX 350.4 amps and one Kicker ZX 550.3 amp. Keeping the tunes sounding their best are Stinger wires and Roadkill sound deadening.
Audio doesn't reign supreme, however, as a grand total of 14 monitors were installed inside the cab. Eight 10-inch Audiobahn monitors can be found inside as well as four 7 1/2-inch screens. Thanks to a Pioneer Avic-Z2 head unit and multiple screen splitters, each monitor can play DVDs, show the music playing, or even navigation. Eric Debaum of Ocala, Florida, is responsible for the paint-matching leather and suede seats and orange-suede headliner with mirrors in place.
All-in-all, the truck build has been a nearly five-year long headache. Jonathan is still optimistic about the whole ordeal saying, "The truck is my personal entertainment, I've always had a love for trucks." That's an amazing statement considering the numerous broken promises, dollars spent, and asprin popped. At the end of the day, he can hop out of the Ford and look up at his giant creation with pride knowing it was one heck of a ride. Special thanks to his wife Tanya, his adorable baby girl Juliana, and Mickey and Carolyn Joy for their support.
