Last month, you may have noticed the ultra-low Ford SuperCrew owned by Street Scene Equipment. Yep, it was the one plastered right on our cover. The truck achieved a new level of low for SuperCrews, and this month we're going to give you the lowdown on how it was done.
Mike and Lance of Street Scene had been planning since day one to build a SuperCrew that sat lower than any of the others out there, but after the fanfare died down and the 'Crew was retired from the show circuit, they did not want to be left with an undriveable vehicle.
To add another challenge, the 20- and 22-inch Colorado Customs were already on their way. And since a Horkey wood bed kit was going to be installed, the bed floor could not be cut. A tall order, but after brainstorming with Bob and Mike of Dealer's Sport Truck and various manufacturers, they hashed out a plan that was just crazy enough to work.
For the frontend, they would use upper and lower control arms from DJM. They decided on a custom-cut, chrome four-link kit from TCI for the rear. Also on the list was a complete airbag setup from Airlift. Mike had the task of making it all work smoothly, and with the 'Crew lacking paint and with SEMA just a few weeks away, there was no time to be wasted.
So follow along on our three-day adventure, and keep in mind that this is not a simple do-it-yourself kit. Unless you have at least some basic welding and fabrication skills, this is probably a project best left to a qualified shop.
