Truck Hero’s Ultimate Tailgate Truck Brings In $275,000

The truck sold at the Barrett-Jackson Auction with all proceeds benefiting the Building Homes for Heroes organization.

Truck Hero, Inc., a leading manufacturer for a wide range of functional truck and Jeep accessories, joined partners of Building Homes for Heroes on the Barrett Jackson stage to auction off the 2018 SEMA Show truck build Ultimate Tailgate, a custom 2019 Ford F-350 Lariat. It was an exciting night as the truck brought in an incredible $275,000 at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, with 100% of the proceeds from the sale benefiting the Building Homes for Heroes organization. Truck Hero is a long standing supporter of the charity and Building Homes for Heroes representative Jim Rogers had this to say “Thank you for your amazing partnership! Together, we are changing lives.” The winning bidder and proud new owner was Sam Pack’s Auto Group out of Dallas, Texas. 

The Truck Hero Ultimate Tailgate truck was a great collaboration with many partners including Ford Motor Company and Washtenaw (MI) Community College. It was a platform to display many of their innovative truck accessories at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The basis for the build is a 2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty dually pickup in Lariat trim, equipped with the ever-popular 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel producing an impressive 450 HP and 935 lb.-ft. of torque.

This build’s tailgating claim-to-fame is found out back, where an Extang Solid Fold 2.0 folding bed cover conceals a massive 65” LG OLED 4K TV that is remote controlled and fully-articulates on a custom bed slide system complete with a gaming table, YETI cooler and grill. It truly is the ultimate tailgate.

Washtenaw (MI) Community College worked their magic with the truck’s body and paint. Students added custom touches, including billet emblems and copper-plated badges to give the rig its ultimate identity.
