The world of custom trucks has always been a thriving one, but the trends have certainly shifted over the years. From off-roaders to street machines, truck owners always seem to be pushing the boundaries of what their platforms can handle. This 2017 Ford F-550 Super Duty turned six-wheeler is known as Indomitus, and it does just that. While we might not be familiar Latin, a little research shows that ‘Indomitus’ means untamed, uncontrollable, savage and wild. Based on what we know about this custom built Ford, that name is fitting. Best of all, it’s for sale for $145,000.
If you are familiar with the Diesel Brothers reality show on the Discovery Channel, you might recognize this build. The pickup truck was constructed for the Minnesota Soybean Research Council and was featured during the fourth season of the program.
This 2017 Ford F-550 Super Duty now has three fully functional axles and true six-wheel drive at its disposal, unlike another six-wheeled Ford we recently came across. The added length on the chassis required the Diesel Brothers to fabricate a 10-foot bed, which features both a headache rack and a 5th wheel hitch.
A Readylift suspension system adds seven inches of additional ground clearance, while an adjustable four-link suspension setup complete with airbags in the rear make accessing the bed easier. Under the custom fiberglass fenders sits three sets of DBL beadlock style wheels wrapped in massive 40-inch off-road tires. Other modifications include aftermarket bumpers front and rear, as well as an ‘Indomitus’ badge fitted to the visor.
While this Ford F-550 Super Duty truck has been heavily modified visually and mechanically, it retains its factory powertrain. Under the hood sits a familiar 6.7-liter Powerstroke diesel V8 engine that produces 440 horsepower and 925 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent to all three axles via the factory Ford six-speed automatic transmission.
It is clear that these custom 6×6 trucks are not cheap, but this diesel powered Ford offers up a bit of heavy-duty flare that just feels right. Finding a place to put it might prove challenging, but with a truck this cool who really cares.
