It's a mouthful, isn't it! I can't get enough of these F450 Super Duty pickup trucks. This one takes it one step further with the King Ranch Lariat packages. That is a nice looking truck, and ready to pull whatever you want just about anywhere you want to go. In this case, it was pulling an offshore racing superboat.

According to Wikipedia:
"The Ford Super Duty is a line of commercial pickup trucks (over 8,500 lb (3,900 kg) GVWR) introduced in 1998 for the 1999 model year. The F-250 to F-550 Super Duties are assembled at the Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville, Kentucky. The F-650 and F-750 Super Duties are assembled at the Blue Diamond Truck plant in Mexico.

The Super Duty trucks are larger, heavier built commercial/industrial series pickup trucks with heavier-duty body-on-frame steel ladder frames, axles, springs, brakes, transmissions, more powerful engines, and all other heavier/bigger components (with much higher payload and towing capacities) than the older traditional equivalent F-250, F-250HD (Heavy Duty), and F-350 Ford truck lines. The two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive model frames are the same in the F-250 and F-350 series, making conversion from a two-wheel drive model to a four-wheel drive model less difficult than in other truck models. This is because the '99 model year of the F-series has all the bolt holes in the frame for both two-wheel and four-wheel drive precut by the manufacturer."
