In addition to the 'bagged Wide Ride IFS, you can see the driveshaft for the rear-mounted accessories and the sensor mechanism for the Firestone Intelliride.
The tilt front end and bed was yet another pair of ideas that Rob came up with and Don insisted be incorporated into the truck. The stock cab was completely smoothed over and mated with a highly modified Gibbon front end and rear fenders, and an equally modified Pro's Pick bed. The truck is about as smooth as can be but still retains the stock door handles and front fascia. A No Limit roll pan with flush-mounted LED lights are molded in below the smooth tailgate. And since there are no mirrors on the truck, the rearview camera is mounted there, too!
Jobe and Kane of Jimenez Brothers Customs handled final body and paint. There the PPG custom Orange mix was applied and rubbed to perfection. From the relocated wheel openings and smooth running boards to the smooth gutters and rounded door corners, the Princess has the smoothest lines an Effie can offer. But then with a touch of a button, the actuators actuate and the truck opens up into an exploded view of itself. It's quite a sight to see.
Since no amount of money or talent was spared anywhere else on the truck, the inside of the cab got the royal treatment as well. Rob built the custom dash and center console from scratch. An ididit column topped with a Billet Specialties steering wheel runs through it, and a total of 12 Auto Meter gauges are mounted around it. Even the B&M shifter is custom. Wanda's Custom Upholstery handled the rest, which included radically reworking a Glide Engineering seat before covering it with cream-colored leather and a few bellies of genuine Florida gators. The headliner, floors, and door panels were covered to match, but not before the killer CD/DVD system from Tune Time was installed.
If you ask Don, he'll tell you that none of the amazing work on this truck would be possible if not for Rob MacGregor and the crew at No Limit. Ask Rob, however, and he'll explain to you how rare it is to have a customer like Don. Although an extremely qualified builder, many of the aspects of the Princess were just ideas in Rob's head before this. But Don had the confidence in Rob to let him run with those ideas and produce something great. And now that Don's '56 has won the Peoples Choice award at the 2004 F-100 SuperNats and the coveted Goodguys Truck of the Year award in Fort Worth, we know we're not the only ones that think so.
That's 1,200 hp of pure evil...
That's 1,200 hp of pure evil right there. This giant-block 610 Ford got the best of everything internally so it would handle the 14-71 BDS blower perched on top.
No Limit fabbed-up this dash...
No Limit fabbed-up this dash from scratch before it was covered in leather and filled with Auto Meter gauges. The paint-matched ididit column was topped with Billet Specialties steering wheel and wrapped in matching leather. Even the B&M shifter got the leather treatment.
