You’ll find no shortage of customized Ford F-Series trucks at the annual SEMA Show, but some of the most interesting can be found at Ford’s own show stand. For 2017, FoMoCo has 11 custom trucks and SUVs on display at the big show, and dozens more cars.
Here’s what you can expect to see on the convention floor if you are lucky enough to attend.
Ford Super Duty Project SD126
This 2017 Ford Super Duty XLT looks like a Tonka truck on steroids and is called Project SD126 by its creators. Under the hood, there’s a 6.7-liter V-8 diesel engine that’s mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The regular-cab truck was converted to a short bed and now rolls on a 126-inch wheelbase with massive 42-inch BFGoodrich Baja tires. It also features a BDS suspension and Fox coilovers. Inside, the blacked-out cab gets racing seats and harnesses along with an off-road GPS, and a booming custom stereo system by Kicker.
Air Design F-150 Lariat SuperCrew
This silver and black 2018 F-150 recalls the legendary Ford SVT Lightning trucks of the 1990s. A 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine that’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission powers the custom SuperCrew. It features Air Design Street Series Accessories that include a full body styling kit, hood scoop, fender vents, rear spoiler, and rear tailgate. Air Design says each custom piece is CAD designed for the 2018 Lariat SuperCrew and is easy to install.
Modern Adventurer SuperCrew
Here’s a nifty red and black Ford F-150 XLT SuperCrew that’s made for outdoorsy types and the “Modern Adventurer,” according to its builder. It sports an all-new A.R.E. Z Revo cap to protect your gear in the bed. There’s a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine under the hood that’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. It’s packed with plenty of outdoor goodies and the James Baroud roof top tent is a real must for campers.
Custom Ford F-150 4×4 Lariat SuperCrew
This custom F-150 4×4 Lariat SuperCrew was designed for both rough terrain and city streets. The sandy paint job with brown highlights and seven-inch lift kit make the truck look ready for desert running, and the Fuel Hostage two-piece forged beadlock wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 tires complete the rugged look. In case you missed the bright orange letters on the side of the F-150, it’s powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 that is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. A Ford Performance exhaust was added so all the critters can hear you coming and going.
RK Sport Race-Inspired F-150
RK Sport crafted this race track-ready black and red F-150 XLT SuperCab. It gets carbon-fiber bits including a ram air hood, front splitter, grille overlay, rocker panels, and rear spoiled. The ram air hood is functional and helps keep the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine cool. The V-6 is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The truck is lowered with a McGaughy’s lowering kit on Black Forgiato Technica wheels and Toyo Proxes ST tires, which complement the custom two-tone paint job.
Tjin Edition Ford F-150
This 2018 Tjin Edition Ford F-150 is a follow-up to the truck that “wowed the crowd at SEMA in 2012,” according to its creators. A beefy 5.0-liter V-8 engine that’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission powers the XLT. The slammed beige F-150 sports an Air Lift suspension and rolls on gold 24-inch Rotiform wheels and Falken tires. Big Baer brakes help to slow the 4×2 XLT SuperCrew down. A black and orange color scheme dominates the Katzkin interior, which can get rowdy thanks to a sound system by Kicker.
Ford F-350 Lariat “The Operator”
This 2017 Ford Super Duty F-350 is reporting for action. The recon adventure rig is called “The Operator,” and features a bed-mounted UTV supported by Hellwig’s Big Wig air springs and front and rear sway bars. It packs a 6.7-liter V-8 turbodiesel engine that’s mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The F-350 features a custom hand-painted digi-camo paint job to help stay hidden while you are out on a desert crawl.
Ford F-150 RTR Muscle Truck
Are you ready to rock, again? This Ford F-150 RTR Muscle Truck is made for hauling ass, doing donuts, mudding, jumping, or “spirited driving with friends.” Especially if your buds are like the concept truck’s owner—drift king Vaughn Gittin Jr. Under its low, wide hood, there’s a proper 5.0-liter V-8 engine that’s paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. It’s rumored to pack over 600 horses, so you know it must be a blast to drive. We love the truck’s simple and stealthy design that should help make it easier for quick getaways.
