Trophy Tow Truck

We have accomplished a lot of high-end quality projects to date, but one that sticks out is a project we built for James Horvath trophy truck driver #50. ARMOR INC. built a tow rig, like no other, for his James Horvath. With a competitive edge, James required HORSEPOWER and the toughest of all, RELIABILITY! For James, a fierce competitor, he needed a truck that could handle his driving. So after blowing the motor twice in his 2009 6.4L Ford Powerstroke engine, James asked Darren Harris of, ARMOR INC., “What about a Dodge Cummins swap and a 1000HP?”.

Darren Harris replied, “No! How about 600HP all day long and never have to lift pulling up any hill?” 

To which James said, “Why not a 1000HP?” 

Jokingly, Darren replied, “I know how you drive and I don't want to fix it every week.”  

So began a transplant of a 2005 Twin Turbo Common Rail into a 2009 Ford F350. Putting in approximately, 130 hours of labour ARMOR INC. was excited to unveil the resurrected Ford F350 to James with the following add-ons....

  • trophy-truck-sm2005 5.9L Dodge Cummins custom engine
  • Custom pistons
  • Colt cam
  • HD valve springs
  • Custom Twin Turbos
  • High flow exhaust manifold
  • Custom injector nozzles
  • Air Dog fuel system
  • Diesel CP3 pump
  • Precision Industries' Torque convertor
  • Fabtech 8" coilover suspension
  • Big wheel kit
  • 37" TOYO Mt's
  • Bulletproof bumpers


This truck has proven itself with: 638 RWHP, towing through the desert pulling hills at 75lbs boost, 1250˚ degree EGT, passing every sports car through the mountains with a combined payload of truck and trailer bouncing the scales at upwards of 25,000lbs. James Horvath Trophy Truck #50 is beast to be reckoned with.
