Kelderman’s attention to detail is second-to-none in the business, crafting Ford Super Duty trucks with Rolls-Royce-like precision.
Ford’s latest Super Duty is an incredible truck — there is no doubt about it. It delivers impressive performance, it looks the business, and it’s 110-percent “Built Ford Tough.” That being said, such characteristics don’t stop aftermarket companies from churning out parts designed to make it look and perform even better. Take for example, Kelderman Manufacturing from Oskaloosa, Iowa.
Kelderman has been in business since 1970 as a manufacturer of various agricultural products. In 1990, current owner Gary Kelderman designed his first pickup truck air suspension, and since then he has progressed into a one-stop-shop for heavy-duty truck parts and modifications. Needless to say, they’ve developed a bit of a reputation for their intimidating creations.
Lifts range from five and six inches, all the way up to 10 on some of the builds. In most cases, inventory consists of extra-large Fuel wheels and Toyo Open Country M/T tires. But, it’s the little custom touches that really stand out on these Super Duty builds — things like smoked lights, accent colors, and beautiful suspension components. Whatever you want, Kelderman can and will accommodate. For a fee, of course.
After drooling over their project vehicle gallery and YouTube channel, it’s easy to see why they’re considered the best by many. Unlike many truck outfitters, these guys manufacture most of the parts they use on their builds. Everything from bumpers to grilles and air suspensions are true works of art. In particular, Kelderman’s Alpha Series bumpers and grilles carry a unique, industrial look that makes a menacing truck downright sinister.
If you’re the alpha type who wants to drive something capable of scaring other drivers, you can thank us later. Oh, but don’t forget your checkbook.
