Athletic governing bodies are coming down hard on steroids and HGH, which has probably led to a glut on the market. Performance West Group appears to have bought up the entire surplus and injected it into a Ford F-350 dually in order to create the Striker. Part pickup and part Ford Mustang GT500KR, the Striker will be intimidating other vehicles at this year's SEMA show in Las Vegas.

The greatest tuning minds of our generation are assisting PWG with the project. Gale Banks is tuning the PowerStroke V8 engine above its 350 hp and 650 lb-ft. Hulst Customs is fabricating the bodywork. American Lightweight will be providing the aluminum 24" wheels. Katzkin Leather and Sony are doing duty inside to make sure you enjoy what will surely be a monster system in beauteous comfort.

PWG will then drape the entire thing in Striker Silver and Badass Blue and then probably let it loose to kill things. The rationalist in us wants to ask "What the...?" The auto junkie in us wants to stick it in the driveway and let it reek of testosterone. And then transform into a Decepticon. Which means we can't wait for SEMA.

      I like it. I like it a lot. As long as you don't have to notch the frame to make it work, I want one.

      I don't care who you are, that's funny right there.

      I'm pretty sure Hulst Performance , made a performance F-350 a long time ago called the "Striker"...

      This truck gets a big fat "Whooptie-Doo" salute in my book.
      • 6 Years Ago
      That is evil.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Very very tacky.

      My friends are MRT are taking a different approach to their F350... they are actually looking to make it MORE functional! I found this sneak peek:

      The back wheels look like 13's and the terrible drawing makes this abortion look like it's 50 feet long. I'll pass...

      I can understand sport trucks, but super-duty is antithetical to that.

      This is a work truck that weighs probably between four to six tons, and built to do work.

      It is not built to be sporty, and it looks ridiculous trying.

      F150, or heaven forbid something new from Ford, rather than the Ranger. Sport Trac, something.

      An F350 is hardly sporty in any sense of any definition of the word.

      It would look better if they could fix the headlights......say,..get them off the previous generation......
        • 6 Years Ago
        The current generation's headlights are like that for safety reasons. I don't think it's the headlights which make it ugly as much as the stock grille and "SUPER DUTY" plastered all over the tailgate do.

      Dont they have 350 hp stock??
      • 6 Years Ago
      I don't care what people say, but I have a serious weakness for lowered trucks.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Agreed.

        For some reason, I especially like seeing duallys scraping pavement. Maybe it's just the whole "long and low" look that appeals to me, but I like it.

        It all started with me seeing a few early to mid '90's Chevy Duallys on airbags a decade ago. I still like that look now.

        It's fairly impractical and completely defeats the purpose(and usability) of the truck, but damned if it doesn't look pretty good.

        I want to see what this truck will look like in the flesh. With Banks tuning it may very well have a good amount of "Go" to go with the show as well.
