Ford Previews Customized F-150 and Explorer Models for SEMA Show

A collection of customized Ford Pickups and SUVs have been given awesome tune-ups in preparation for the much-anticipated SEMA 2011.

At the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas next week, some of the latest tuning projects from the top aftermarket companies in the world will be on display. Today Ford has previewed a selection of its pickups and SUVs to be showcased at the event, with focus on its extensive customization of the 2011 F-Series pickup range and the 2011 Explorer SUV, three of which have been put in the hands of a trio of capable tuning firms: Stitchcraft Interiors, DSO Eyewear and Tjin.

The latter of these we caught wind of last week fitting their model with a custom Dupont paint job, custom 24-inch iForged Concave wheels, Light Wurkz LED headlights, lowered Eichbach suspension and large Baer brakes. From the designers at Stitchcraft we have a "Business Edition" theme, with plenty of leather and Alcantara, an Orion Car Audio stereo and a custom Seaside Collision exterior paint job; whilst fashionistas will take pleasure in DSO Eyewear's vehicle that comes with a lowered suspension kit, 24-inch wheels, Pearl White paint scheme and Katzkin-lined leather interior.

Two F-150s and a pair of F-350 Super Duty models make up Ford's customized pickups with designers at Skyjacker Suspensions adding four-inch lift and monotube shocks, a Magnaflow exhaust, Bushwacker fender flares and a Sttelcraft custom stainless-steel grille guard to a F-150 EcoBoost. The other F-150 to be showcased is by CGS Performance Products, who have added a custom aluminum hood, Jet Black paint, Colorado Custom billet wheels, Baer Brakes, Whipple twin-screw supercharger and a front coil-over suspension setup by Bell Tech. This is arguably the pick of the bunch and is sure to turn heads at the event.

Superlift Suspensions and Hulst Customs took ownership of the F-350 Super Duty pickups, giving them custom paint jobs and oversized wheels, whilst the designers have added scissor doors up front and a set of suicide doors at the rear.
