2-DANKK FORD F-250

Written by KRISTIE BERTUCCI PHOTOS: DALE MARTIN

Addison Guerra’s Ford F-250 can never be missed thanks to its mighty 3rd Coast Suspension with Accuair air system

that has the ability to lift the truck from 8”-16” with the control of a touch pad. It can be spotted anywhere hovering above the crowd of mediocre vehicles on any highway, parking lot or street - which is exactly what Guerra was going for. With his design process based around the lift (which was installed by B&C Off-Road in Pasadena, TX), Guerra knew that once it was in place, every other modification needed to be in tune, so that they all combined and made one massive statement.

Nicknamed “2DANKK,” Guerra chose the F-250 as the truck for his project because he loved the body style and the “luxury feel of the interior of the Lariat model,” in addition to the sound of the exhaust system. With the lift already chosen, it was time to pick a color scheme that would magnify the build’s towering stance, and the orange/grey combination was selected. “My wife helped choose the unique color scheme, and I ran with it,” Guerra mentions. “There aren’t any famous gray and orange trucks that have been built, so I was glad that she came up with this color combo to set the truck apart from the rest. My wife also helped name the truck, so that it would have a unique name for it to be known by.”

Although the build was centered around the massive lift, it’s the unique wrap design by ECD Customs that Guerra notes as one of the biggest highlights. “It was installed by Tyler Wrap Company in Flint, TX and SynFX in Tyler, TX. This design attracts everybody’s eyes due to the triangle pattern, and the orange highlights that are in the wrap,” he says. “Another highlight are the Specialty Forged Wheels (powdercoated and pinstriped by Pat’s Paint Werks in Webster, TX) that are mated to Toyo’s Open Country M/T tires. These wheels have a crazy design, and they are huge! They cannot be missed rolling down the road. The wheel quality is out of this world, and the styles that are available are unmatched.”

ECD Customs also created the wrap for the Fox Shocks, while powdercoated ShowTime Metal Works (STMW) front and rear bumpers were a perfect fit with the design of his truck. Two Rigid Industries 40” combo light bars were added to the front bumper, and two 6” light bars adorn the rear bumper. There are four rock lights that light up the truck underneath to highlight the one-off suspension and the rest of undercarriage. To amplify its presence, a Flo Pro exhaust was chosen, and a Torque Technologies DBF Delete T1 Tuner ups the horsepower and torque of the F-250.

Completing all the work for Guerra was Maxxed Performance in Baytown, TX. “I would not have been able to complete this build if they didn’t help,” he confesses. “After being let down by a previous shop I was working with, I frantically called Max Brill two weeks before SEMA 2014 with a long list of items that I needed done in order for me to be able to take my truck to the show. He instantly made me feel like family and everything was done three days later.”

According to Guerra, the truck is always the center of attention and he usually gets a slew of compliments everywhere he goes. “It is crazy the amount of pictures and videos that people take as I drive down the road or stop somewhere. Everybody loves seeing the truck lower when I pull up somewhere, and lift back up when I leave. When I was a freshman in college I saw a guy with a lifted black Duramax. I went up to him and asked him what size lift he had. His response was, ‘When you can afford the diesel then come talk to me.’ I do my best to answer any question and talk with whoever wants to talk about my truck, because I do not want to be like that guy.”

Despite missing his SEMA 2014 debut because of complications, he instead unveiled it at the Lone Star Throwdown in Conroe, TX where it came in Top 20 of more than 2,000 vehicles that attended. Now, he’s finally going to show it off where he originally wanted and will be hitting this year’s SEMA Show!
