The expectations and demands of a Trophy Truck champion are understandably high for his on-road vehicle, and Nick Baldwin has used his vision to assemble a truck worthy of his name. Nick Baldwin Motorsports' Ford F-150 luxury prerunner is the result of thousands of carefully selected parts and thousands of man-hours in labor. The truck took two years to fabricate, cementing its place as one of the finest vehicles in the history of trucks.

To start off, tubes of ultra-strong chromoly steel and flat plate are bent, notched, and welded into a rigid chassis and suspension assembly. Once finished, the truck is brought to Nick Baldwin Motorsports to begin the long fabrication process. The engine technology and performance are the same as in the unlimited Trophy Trucks that win the SCORE Baja 1000, with the Ford F-150 packing a Roush Racing 427-cu-in. V-8 engine capable of moving the truck along at 140 mph on dirt. The truck's suspension offers nearly three feet of wheel travel to give the occupants a smooth ride.
