Click image for a gallery of the SEMA Super Duty trucks

Ford's Super Duty trucks are some of the meanest-looking rides on offer from anyone. Big in power and stature, and dripping with machismo, it should come as no surprise that SEMA will showcase a trio of them built out to varying degrees of Truckzillaness. The Shaker 4x450 by X-Treme Toyz is lifted ten inches, accessible via a motorized step, deco'd with custom graphics, accessorized to the hilt and sports a modified 6.4L Powerstroke diesel. It rolls on 40" Toyos and frightens animals smaller than a polar bear. The Project "Power Storm" F-350 by Fabtech is also lifted 10 inches, rolls on 40-inch tires, and sports a laundry list of sccessories and custom elements of its own. Finally, DeBerti is bringing a low-riding F-450 (see above) optimized for motorcycle-hauling. A Dallas Smith Axleless Lo-Floor front-wheel-drive chassis conversion puts the bed floor close to the ground, making it a snap to roll your hog on and off with ease. Big, black, and low, the DeBerti looks like it's going to be one of our favorites already. For full vehicle descriptions, check out the attached photo gallery, where they accompany the pics.

  • Ford F-350 Super Duty by Fabtech
  • Project "Power Storm" fuses extreme off-road with pro-street muscle to create this one-of-a-kind monster truck. Fabtech lifted the F-350 10 inches over stock and bolted the four-link suspension, Dirt Logic coil over shocks and a Fabtech custom Dana rear axle to a narrowed frame. American Force 20x12-inch front and 20x8-inch rear wheels accented with Fabtech custom lug nuts and wheels caps, mount Toyo 40/1550R20 Mud Terrain tires. The body enhanced with Fabtech custom air extractors and rear fender wells, a Precision billet grille, Sir Michaels roll pan and AMP Research electric side steps. The electrifying graphics are done by Haney Designs with House of Kolor paint. Cal & Ed's Temecula Audio and Video installed the Clarion sight and sound hardware, while Tito's custom upholstery, Recon doorsills and a Rhino bed liner round out the list of amenities.

  • This truck will leave you shaken and stirred. The Shaker 4x450 from X-Treme Toyz is the ultimate in off-road playthings. The massive F-450 sits 10-inches over stock on a Fabtech suspension with Dirt Logic shocks and X-Treme Toyz front and rear torsion sway bar system. American Force 22-inch wheels wear Toyo 40x15.5xR22 M/T Open Country Rubber. The 6.4-liter PowerStroke® diesel gets a power boost from a Banks Six Gun power tuner and AFE intake system. The bright red-on-black paint scheme by Matrix highlights the Fab Fours front and rear bumpers and Amp Research power steps. The sliding cargo floor uses a Thule Xporter rack system with bike mounts for the Cannondale mountain bikes. The Roadwire leather interior features a Seat Comfort Systems massaging front seats with entertainment courtesy of a Kenwood audio, video and navigation system.

PRESS RELEASE:
'BUILT FORD TOUGH' SUPER DUTY PUSHES TO NEW HEIGHTS WITH AFTERMARKET INNOVATIONS

DEARBORN, Mich., Oct. 23 – The all-new 2008 Ford F-Series Super Duty – the toughest truck on the planet – is also one of the easiest to customize. And with the help of DeBerti, XTreme Toyz and Fabtech, Super Duty is even tougher and more capable for the 2007 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas.

"There is no doubt that the new Super Duty is the ultimate 'Built Ford Tough' truck," said Mike Crowley, Ford Truck and SUV group marketing manager. "In fact, it's that solid foundation that makes Super Duty one of the most flexible trucks for customizing, which is essential when more than 50 percent of our truck customers are modifying their vehicles for work and play."

Ford will showcase the three customized Super Duty trucks among more than two dozen project vehicles including F-150, Edge, Mustang and Focus starting Oct. 30.
