Buckstop Truckware: Transforming Dually Trucks for Off-Road Dominance

Published Categorized as Cars No Comments on Buckstop Truckware: Transforming Dually Trucks for Off-Road Dominance

Tucked away in a quiet corner of the venue, the Buckstop Truckware booth at this year’s Mint event might have gone unnoticed by some. However, upon closer inspection of what initially appeared to be a typical heavy-duty dually truck, it became evident that this particular model was anything but ordinary.

With only a single wheel at each rear corner, this dually had undergone a remarkable transformation courtesy of Buckstop Truckware’s facilities in Coleman, Texas, and Prineville, Oregon.

Whether it’s Ford, GM, Ram, Toyota, or even Nissan full-sized trucks, Buckstop Truckware boasts the expertise and resources to craft and install heavy-duty bumpers, body kits, lift kits, and professional applications tailored for trucks like F-450s.

However, their standout offering, as demonstrated at the Mint 400, is undoubtedly their remarkable dually to single-wheel conversions. The entire process, from start to finish, is meticulously carried out at one of Buckstop Truckware’s facilities, ensuring quality and precision at every step.

But why undergo such a radical conversion? The proximity to the venue offers a clue. With trophy trucks tearing through the terrain yards away, it’s clear that superior off-road performance is the objective.

While dually wheels excel in heavy-duty on-road tasks like towing and hauling, they can prove to be a hindrance on challenging off-road trails, prone to trapping debris and compromising traction.

Enter Buckstop Truckware’s dual to single-wheel conversion kit, a solution designed to enhance off-road capability. Their state-of-the-art facilities meticulously dismantle the rear axles and suspension of customer dually trucks, replacing them with hardware better suited for challenging terrain.

Featuring beefier radius arms, coil springs, and a heavier-duty sway bar, these conversions offer increased suspension travel and improved handling, ensuring the truck remains maneuverable even in the most demanding off-road conditions.

Optional upgrades like the computer-controlled “Liquid Spring” suspension further enhance the truck’s performance, promising a smooth and controlled ride reminiscent of luxury vehicles.

While the price tag for such upgrades may seem steep, ranging from $23,000 to $26,000, depending on the chosen model, the investment ensures unparalleled off-road capability and a truly unique driving experience.

In the aesthetics department, Buckstop Truckware’s conversions certainly make a statement. With bold features like eight-inch fender flares, 20-inch forged alloy wheels, and 40-inch Mickey Thompson Baja Legend MTZ tires, these trucks exude an unmistakable rugged charm, ready to tackle the toughest challenges.

While they may not endure a full race at the Mint 400, they undoubtedly command attention and admiration as some of the coolest trucks in the venue.

Of course, such conversions may not be suitable for everyone. While the F-450 gains off-road prowess, it sacrifices on-road practicality. Buckstop Truckware acknowledges this, advising limited annual mileage and cautioning against heavy towing for their single-wheel HD truck conversions.

However, for those seeking a unique off-road adventure or building the ultimate overland rig, Buckstop Truckware’s conversions offer unparalleled capability and style, ensuring their trucks stand out from the crowd.
