Last year, Dave “Heavy D” Sparks had a Ford F-450, and now his daily truck is a 2017 Ford F-250. “The new Ford F-250 has to be one of the most comfortable, reliable vehicles I’ve ever owned,” Heavy D says. “I need a strong truck like this for long road trips, heavy hauls, or the crazy antics we get into. At the end of the day, this vehicle does everything I need and so much more.” See all 16 photos Heavy D has always been a truck guy. “I don’t enjoy driving cars unless they’re muscle cars or foreign sports cars,” he says. “I can’t stand driving the regular run-of-the-mill vehicles that most of the population drives—the Honda Accords, the minivans. Those vehicles do nothing for me.” Heavy D’s love for trucks began early. He grew up working with his truck on the farm, repairing tractors and hauling hay, even doing some construction. Trucks have always been part of his life.
