Welcome to the Big Orange Web Site:

Thanks for stopping by, this site is about my truck and the past and future changes the have and are about to occur


Hello! My name is Mick and welcome. Please look around this site and enjoy yourself. In the following pages you'll find information about my truck along with pictures and some of my favorite links. The truck is a 1977 Ford F-250 4x4 High Profile (highboy). It was one of the last factory lift trucks that Ford made of this style. I have had the truck since 1987 and have learned quite a few little details and odd tidbits that go into the making of this truck. For instance: Did you know that Ford made the frame of this truck two inches closer together. Why you ask, I don't know maybe some one will be able to let me know as I am always searching for new facts about the Ford High- Boy.
