Now here's something we didn't expect at SEMA, or anywhere for that matter: a slammed FedEx delivery truck. Yes, what you're looking at is an actual FedEx delivery truck lowered to the ground that the shipping company commissioned Mobsteel to build.

The truck uses the nose from a 1981 Freightliner, but the rest of it was built from scratch, including the chassis. A 550-horsepower turbocharged Cummins diesel straight six built by Superior sends power to the rear wheels through an ATS stage-three transmission, and the exhaust system runs through the frame.

The truck rides on standard semi-truck wheels with 40-inch tires, and we imagine it rides on hydraulic or air suspension that raises it a bit for driving. Of course, Mobsteel's creation won't be used by FedEx for deliveries, but instead for promotional purposes.

Head over to the photo gallery to take a look at the lowest FedEx truck around.

      It would be cool to see this truck done up in older style graphics. It would make the perfect hot rod shop parts hauler.

      It's a shipping container with lights and wheels.

      Meh. It just looks like a broken truck ready to be scrapped.

      This thing has no practical purpose and is a marketing fail for FedEx as far as I'm concerned. Were I in charge of FedEx, I'd fire whomever was responsible for this. What a waste of money.

      Though SEMA is all about collapsed suspensions. MobSteel has produced a lifelike representation of a FEDEX truck leaving an Amazon warehouse.

      This freshly minted vehicle is very capable of being a daily driver. Trust me this Fedex Truck is more functional than many other showcars at SEMA. I talked to the guy who was hauling it to SEMA somewhere in Iowa. Seems like it would be fun to see a ongoing demo of the truck doing a slow roll into park position, dropping the frame and a lovely fedex driver delivering your parts. Repeat

      This is way cooler than it should be.
