Single Dad Builds Son an Incredible Firetruck Bed [PHOTOS]
This is a story of a single father and firefighter. His son loves going to the station with his Dad so he can play on the trucks. So, he decided it was time that he had one of his own.
The bed has it’s own pump panel with parts taken off of a salvage truck. The switch panel controls all of the lights on top as well as a siren sound that was stolen out of an old toy firetruck his son had broken.
The lights are powered by an old supply that the father had sitting around. He said:
“I’m sure there is a much better way to power them… but I couldn’t figure out how.”
The inside of the bed has a 20 inch monitor hooked up to a computer that is hidden in the top of the bed. It’s connected to their network and streams all of the son’s shows and movies. It has no keyboard or mouse, it is controlled via the father’s computer so he can monitor what the child is watching.
The CB you see on the dash was gutted and a county scanner was put inside of it, so he can listen to the counties fire dispatch whenever he wants to play. There is a small fan to help with airflow, and a play phone.
It has an ignition switch stolen out of an old little tykes car, complete with keys, and a pump pressure valve which he pretends lowers and raises his bucket.
This is Dad and his little Chief.
