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.
'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.
