During the just-concluded Specialty Equipment Market Association Show in Las Vegas, Ford had more new built and customized pickup trucks on the floor than any other truckmaker. We've been told that Ford passed out 15 early production 2015 Ford F-150s to some big aftermarket players, as well as some up-and-coming builders and racers. The result was a blanket of hugely diverse half-ton pickups with some wild-and-crazy modifications and even a few cool ideas.
Among some of the more impressive F-150s on display was an extreme sports lifted and customized (both inside and out) Platinum SuperCrew by A.R.E. Accessories (they build truck camper shell manufacturer), Brian Deegan's Baja XTR, and Bushwacker's lifted booth truck. ARE's F-150 was set up with snowboards, a motocross bike, GoPro cameras and camcorders, helmets and even had a set of rollout bed drawers.
Ford had eight different 2015 F-150s in its booth (our favorite was built by Formula Drift champion Vaughn Gittin Jr.) with the remaining custom F-150s spread throughout the monstrous convention center. Also among our favorites in the Ford booth was a downsized electric rear-wheel-drive cart with all sorts of Raptor-looking front-grille and tailgate design cues. What will they think of next?
We'll have more images from the SEMA Show in the naer future on our Facebook page.
