With its powerful Power Stroke diesel engine and high payload and towing capacity, the Super Duty has no problem hauling around the custom Textron UTV and gear in its eight foot bed.  However, the stock suspension just wasn’t up to the task of keeping the truck’s ride height level or countering the increased body roll from the new higher center of gravity.  Luckily, Hellwig’s new suspension products are designed to correct this.
