F-Series F250 and F350 Superduty Black Ops takes the legendary F-Series ute to a new level of 'toughness' when it arrives in Australia about the middle of the year.

Harrison F-Truck, the company that has put many Australians behind the wheel of the F-Series offers the Ford F-Series range from the F150 through to the F550, is taking orders now for the new Superduty Black Ops range.

The F-Series F250 and F350 Superduty Black Ops will join the range of F-Series trucks offered Harrison F-Trucks, who started delivering the F-Series in Australia in 2002, and VDC, which has been providing legal compliance for right-hand drive for the legendary truck since 1982, enabling the two companies to offer a high level of quality, confidence and durability. Between them Harrison F-Trucks and VDC have delivered more than 600 F-Series trucks in Australia that have possibly covered more than 50 million kilometres, proving that their conversion is as tough as the Black Ops name the latest model carries.

Developed by American vehicle conversion specialists ‘Tuscany’, the Black Ops not only looks the part with its all-black body and interior, it backs this up with an extensive range of under the skin changes to ensure that it is as unstoppable as its name suggests.

Starting with the wheels, the F-Series Black Ops uses exclusive 20 inch stealth black allow wheels with BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A LT325/60R20 tyres or, if you see a lot of mud ahead on your route to the top of the mountain, KM2 Mud Terrain tyres are available as an option. Leading the charge is a black powder coated bull bar with a pair of KC off-road Daylighter spot lights. Also black coated is the unique Black Ops grille and mounted on it is bonnet that has two equally exclusive and massive air scoops.

Quick entry and exit for the 'platoon' on Black Ops is essential, so heavy duty, electronic side steps side steps are standard in – you guessed it – powder coated black. At either end of the side steps are enlarged flared wheel arches to help stop the mud being flung by those huge tyres and the 4  inch body lift provided by the Pro-Comp suspension. For accurate tracking and warning, the front suspension has been realigned and tyre sensors and speedometer have been recalibrated. The F250 and F350 Superduty’s huge load space is covered with a lockable Tonnau cover – Black Ops means lock and load! Bringing up the rear is the Quiet Tone Performance Exhaust in stainless steel with black powder coated exhaust tips.

Black Ops also means secrecy, so all the badges have been black-coated, along with all exterior chrome, but, on the other hand, there should some warning what of what’s coming, so there is exclusive Black Ops badging outside and inside. As supplied by Harrison F-Trucks, the F250 and F350 Superduty Black Ops will also be able to blend in seamlessly with local conditions as, like all F-Series provided by Harrison F-Trucks, it comes with Full Volume Silver Australian Compliance that ensures a conversion built to the highest safety standards.
