Hellwig takes SEMA Show by storm with the “Operator,” a one-of-a-kind 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty equipped with a bed mounted Textron Wildcat X LTD UTV.
Las Vegas, Nevada (October, 2017) – Hellwig Products, a leading manufacturer of sway bars and tow/haul suspension products, debuted its 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty build in the Ford Motor Company booth at the 2017 SEMA Show. The purpose built recon adventure pickup truck, dubbed the “Operator,” is equipped with a custom bed mounted Textron Wildcat X LTD UTV and products from the leading manufacturers in the industry that give it true off-road and off-grid capabilities.The all-new 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty was the perfect platform for the “Operator”. 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.
