Chance struggled to make ends meet and was finally able to reap the benefits of his hard work and labor. He had a 2011 Ford F-250 that he built and took to shows, so when it came time to upgrade, he decided to stick with Ford and purchase a brand new 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty. It was a new body style, so it certainly wasn’t going to be easy to customize at first, but that was no challenge for his team at All Out.
Immediately off the showroom floor, Chance brought the Ford to Armando’s Paint and Body in Pleak, Texas, for a color change to Chance’s favorite combo of red and black. He then brought in Pat Maxwell to lay down some subtle graphics that to the naked eye appear to be pinstripe. Once the paint was to Chance’s specification and liking, the next step was the body modifications. Inside his Spring, Texas, All Out Offroad location, Mike Wheat and the rest of the talented team removed the cab bed and engine and welded shut more than 200 holes to smooth out the body. They also modified the rear passenger frame to fit a custom 4-inch oval exhaust pass-through.
To lift the new Ford, Mike and the team smoothed down the link arms to give it a seamless look and took it to Speed Sport Chrome for chrome plating. The PMF axle trusses were welded to both front and rear axles and sent to powdercoating. Custom one-off helper bag brackets were designed to help give the Ford better adjusting ability while towing a load. Jesse at High Angle Drivelines built a custom front driveshaft along with a custom rear two-piece driveshaft. B&B Upholstery made custom limiting straps to house ABS and vacuum lines for the front and rear axles to give it a clean appearance. The factory fuel tank was removed and replaced with a 30-gallon aluminum PMF fuel cell. Every bolt for suspension and the cab were zinc plated silver so they all color matched. Custom bolt-on accent places were water-jetted and painted black to bolt over the PMF cages.
Now that the truck was lifted and the suspension was built, Mike added Bodyguard A2L low profile front and rear bumpers to the Super Duty. Mike custom fabricated a towing hitch to handle all of Chance’s toys that he planned on hauling. A Gravel Empire grille was put in place with the All Out Offroad metal plate front and center. Eighty-six red and white Rigid Industries rock lights were mounted underneath the truck with all the wiring hidden within the frame rails to showcase the suspension components and light up the road. Plain an Simple out of Houston custom built the headlights to add even more red to the Ford truck.
Under the hood, the 6.7L Powerstroke diesel got upgrades by way of the PPEI tuning and S&B cold-air intake. A Fuel Air Separation System (FASS) was added to improve the F-250’s fuel mileage and engine performance and extend the life of the injection system. All factory fuel lines were removed and replaced for safety. SRP black fittings were added along with black braided high-pressure lines complemented with a FASS fuel pump. A Wilwood 6-piston big brake kit was installed for increased stopping power.
When it came time to focus on the cabin of the Ford Ford F-250, Chance again had Mike and the crew gut the original black leather to make way for the Alea Leather seats with red accents and Balenio F Plus series inserts with red stitching. Every single plastic piece inside the F-250 was removed and coated in high quality red to match the exterior. Utilizing the hard-working stock head unit, Mike and the crew fabricated a custom box for under the rear seats, and Eric Latigo of Eazy Paint Co. in Spring, Texas added the custom paint. JL Audio components were added for subwoofers and replaced all the stock mids and highs.
One of the most useful aspects of having a powerful truck is the towing functionality. Chance spends most of his days making sure all five stores run smoothly. On his off time, Chance, his wife Laura and their son Conner go on his 2018 Nortech 39-inch fishing boat which was modified to a party boat. The quad 440Rs make sure it’s not idle at any time and complete with a custom 19.5-inch Myco trailer outfitted with matching American Force Wheels. The Ford F-250 certainly goes all out, and it can be seen on the streets of Houston on weekends on the way to the large lakes, where Chance can enjoy the fruits of his labor.
