Truck Thursday: Street Legal Monster Truck Longroof

PICT4265

So on Wednesday, this olelongrooffan peeked out my window to the outside world in my cube and see this massive freakin’ truck pull into the parking lot out front. Well, my fellow Hoons probably know the immediate actions of this olelongrooffan were to grab my sometimes trusty elcheapoebay acquired image taker and head on out to check this beast out. Wanna come along for the chase? Well, ya gotta make the jump.

This truckish Excursionish wannabe was here to pick up the owner’s new trailer. I am confident with all of the fucking lights on the front of this beast, every approaching driver will be “Blinded By The Light.”

Other than a few additional buttons to operate all of the additional accessories installed on this thing, the dashboard appeared to be bone stock.

The rest of this longroof was a totally different story. The inside of each of the first two pair of doors, there were a pair of leather Captain’s chairs each.

The third door, with a hidden down below latch for exterior opening and the “back back” each contained bench seats capable of holding three adults each. More images of it can be seen at bestpricetrailers facebook page but no link is provided as this olelongrooffan doesn’t have enough room left in my brain to figure out how to link to FB.

That big ass truck was towing in this Clear Trailer to trade in on yet an even larger trailer. I guess towing four bikes isn’t enough.

This olelongrooffan took a moment to check out the website listed on the mudflap of this 2 wheel drive beast. It appears a used one is currently available for a cool $280,000.00.

But this olelongrooffan does have this to say about that. While I am not a huge fan of the whole flame thing, the ones installed on this truck looked pretty damn good.

Oh yeah, and that clear trailer they traded in? I sold it to a couple in Omaha, Nebraska and we are converting it to a mobile cigar bar for them.

Seriously, my fellow Hoons, there is not freakin’ way I could make this up.

  1. I see it. I appreciate the workmanship, truly I do.
    But between the flame job…
    and the Harley sticker in the back window…
    and the lights…
    and the lift…
    I get a real "Sorry about your dick, buddy" vibe.

    1. Or Russia… or Poland… or Finland… or, well, pretty much anywhere that dudes like to mess with trucks.

      1. I see (relatively) a lot of F650 pickups. With an open bed like that, there is always the possibility of hauling heavy steel dies in the bed, or towing a trailer too heavy for an F350.
        OLRF's customer has a bumper hitch, though, and the trailer he bought is light enough for just about any truck ever made with a V8 engine.

  2. So today I saw a lifted, stretched, lime green F-350 with "Strok'n" carved into the front bumper. I said to myself "That's probably the most ridiculous thing I'm going to see today."
    Well now I've been proven wrong.

    1. He just wanted to let everyone know what he does with his time now that he got a truck that keeps all the girls away.

    2. I take it you've never seen the popular Dodge "I'd rather be Cummin' than Strok'n" bumper sticker? I hate my gender.

    1. The one pictured is based in Omaha, NE.
      And yes, it does have flat-screen TVs mounted inside the dually fenders. Oh, and one between the bumper and the tailgate.
      Horrid.

      1. I met a fellow driving one of these a few years ago stating that it would be far better offroad than the Unimog I was driving. After the laughter stopped, I asked if he wanted to show me how a truck with highway truck tires and open differentials(?) was going to do that.

  3. Ford had a working 6 door Excursion roaming around their studios about 10yrs ago.
    As well as a new Bronco…

    1. Where does Longroof insult his customer? Sure there are some negative comments, but I didn't see anything from Longroof himself.

      1. Longroof just found this interesting enough to share. I'm glad he did – it would make one hell of a roadtripper, but it's a bit outside my tax bracket.

        1. Roadtrips, well. I suppose the range would be good, but there are options with superior mileage. A lot of it's bulk doesn't really translate to interior room. It could probably tow quite a lot except it probably can't with that hitch I think? And for that price there are other options that would be far… yes I want one too.
          For not-super-far-away-place camping involving rough-ish roads with a largish number of people and some ATVs or dirtbikes or PWC or something.

    2. SRSLY? There's NO way any self respecting hoon would own / drive that rolling billboard for tiny penises. LongRoofian wasn't at all cruel in his depiction of this clown truck, an amazing display of self restraint was shown.

  4. Flames don't do much for me, but this is a serious rig. I like it.
    Is that a roof-mounted AC unit?

  5. I don't know folks..I like this. A lot. But I no longer understand the "penis" shortfall references. Then again they've been thrown toward every Corvette owner since the 70's. I'm at the point in my life where I can afford to own/drive what I want. Sure, a slammed and chopped 68 Cadillac hearse with a 6-71 blower sticking through the hood, with flames over black paint, isn't for everyone but me and my average penis are just fine; thankyouverymuch. Lord knows I'm not looking to show up anyone or cruise chicks in a powerglide-equipped faded Corvair either.
    I still scratch my head as to why anyone would ever own (or drive) a car as soulless as any model Volvo, but I don't crap on those that do. Eat your lutefisk and be happy.

  6. My point about this vehicle is that it is almost totally useless outside of being an attention grabber.
    In my experience a truck this big needs a spring hitch so the front of the trailer doesn't shake apart and break the A-frame….. yep, experience talking. I used to haul a skee-ball trailer with a 1974 Ford 9000 with a 10 speed roadranger and a 250 Cummins. And no power steering or a/c.
    but it served its purpose.
    I used to own a Ford Centurion which was a lot more practical than this rig.
    But, whatever makes your boat float.
    I'm missing the bus. http://hooniverse.info/2013/02/10/weekend-edition-
