Steve Olliges’ Ford F-150 Prerunner

by Curtis Guise on October 22, 2015

After three championship seasons with the Ford Rough Rider team in the 90’s, Steve Olliges thought it was time to retire his Stock-Full Ford F-150 race truck.  Steve wanted a reliable prerunner that was comfortable and would need very little maintenance.  Originally Stewarts Raceworks took on the project and converted the F-150 to a prerunner.  And years later Mark Newhan upgraded the suspension.

The interior is loaded with power windows and doors, air conditioning, Kenwood 6 disc CD changer, Kenwood FM race radio, built in ice chest, custom aluminum dash with glovebox, and even dome and mirror lights just like a truck right off the lot of Steve’s Las Vegas Team Ford dealership!

When Mark Newhan upgraded the truck he built his own custom I-Beams and spindles along with Blitzkrieg hubs.  In the rear he used Dirt Tech 60″ trailing arms and swapped out all the old shocks for FOX 4.0 bypasses and 3.0 coil-overs.
