Every year, aftermarket companies from all over creation set up booths at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. This year, SEMA has been filled to the brim with companies using F-Series Pickups for their displays. Ford’s VP of U.S. Marketing, Sales, and Service said “We’re honored that more SEMA members use F-Series pickups than any other trucks as their featured platform to showcase their latest ideas and products at this important show.”
However, aftermarket exhibits aren’t the only ones that feature Ford trucks. Ford’s booth had four trucks in it, showing how versatile their F-150 and Super Duty trucks really are. The four main trucks that catch our interest are the following:
2011 Ford F-350 Super Duty by Superlift Suspensions:
There aren’t a whole lot of things out there that are manlier than a lifted truck. Which is probably why Matchbox and Superlift Suspensions joined forces to create the Matchbox Superlift Brush Truck. It features a 10″ lift, and sits sky-high on 41″ tires. To top it off, they lathered on some “Oh, So Orange” paint (seriously), with a contrasting matte black accent. It comes with emergency lights and sirens, and a firefighting utility bed and equipment. Those fortunate enough to come across this spectacle can obtain a miniature die-cast version of the truck by visiting the Ford show stand.
2011 Ford F-150 EcoBoost by Skyjacker Suspensions:
“Project No Compromise” is certainly a truck worth looking at. Those who are looking at clean performance may idolize what this truck has to offer. It’s equipped with a 4″ Skyjacker suspension lift (with monotube shocks), a MagnaFlow cat-back exhaust system, a stainless steel grille guard, and an LED light bar nearing 3ft in length. To put the icing on the cake, there’s a set of Bushwacker fender flares.
2011 Ford F-150 by CGS Performance Products:
This truck is a little more refined that the previous two, being dubbed the “Tarmac” truck of the lot. An aluminum hood, surrounded by a DuPont Jet Black and Boyd Red finish give the truck a streamlined look. The shoes and grille are fresh as well, adding a little classiness to the truck. Inside, there’s red leather seating, headrest monitors, and red seat belts. To confirm the “tarmac” theme, there’s a Whipple twin-screw blower, Bell Tech coilover suspension, and six-piston Baer brakes with 15″ rotors, to take that power down to a screeching hault.
2011 Ford F-350 Super Duty by Hulst Customs:
This “Black Mamba” Super Duty combines luxury and style. A custombohood/grille combo by Hulst with a stainless mesh grille insert brings together the front end. The side rockers and lower front fascia have LED lighting by Radiantz. For that Rolls-Royce feel, it has rear suicide doors. The Planet Color custom Black paint job and 3M stainless graphics set this truck apart from the rest. Custom leather appointments and aluminum trim accent the interior. Oh, and did we mention that it’s slammed to the floor?
