When you grow up heavily involved in off-road events and monster truck shows, you’re bound to hold a lifelong affinity for big, lifted trucks. Marble Hill, Missouri, native Pleasant Cook (a.k.a. 4x4 Barbie) is one such enthusiast. In 2013, she found herself piloting a 1/3-scale monster truck called Southern Crush, then upgraded to a diesel tow rig to tote the mini monster to events. Soon after that, she moved on to building award-winning show trucks. This brings us to Cook’s latest creation: a oneof- a-kind ‘17 F-250 Platinum.

14-inch Coilovers & 42s

Purchased in late summer, under the knife with only 22 miles on the odometer, and built in just 29 days’ time, the truck was finished without a moment to spare with the 2017 SEMA Show fast approaching. McIntosh Motorsports would serve as the home base for the build from start to finish, and owner Cory McIntosh would be tasked with, among many other things, building the truck’s imposing suspension lift from scratch. Key features entail a 14-inch Fox 2.5 coilover and Fox 3.0 triple bypass shock at each corner, along with a triangulated rear four-link system. The foot-plus of additional ride height helped clear the way for the 42-inch Interco Sniper M/Ts mounted on 24x14 Gear Forged F71P1 wheels.
