Ford F-150 Goes to the 2009 SEMA Show
"The F-150 is the ultimate all-around ‘do everything’ truck, and it is available in 10 different distinct versions, everything from an XL work truck to a Platinum luxury edition to the latest edition – the SVT Raptor – for the ultimate off-road experience,” said Mark Grueber, Ford F-150 marketing manager. “People can personalize the F-150 to meet any need and do just about anything with it.”
The 2009 Ford F-150 by K-Daddyz Kustomz is a combination of street influence with urban luxury. Finished in a two-tone paint scheme, black on the upper portion of the vehicle and red on the bottom – with silver custom airbrushing and pinstripes in between. Under the hood, the project vehicle hides a 5.4-liter supercharged engine.
“We pretty much did something to every aspect of the truck – from 24-inch wheels with a radical air bag suspension to a fully custom bed enclosure and panoramic sunroof,” said Kyle Gann, of K-Daddyz Kustomz.
On the other hand, the 2009 Ford F-150 by Malibu Customz, nicknamed the ‘Freedom Truck’, was designed to honor the men and women serving the U.S. as members of the armed forces. It features airbrushed graphics by famed artist Mickey Harris depicting all five military services – the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard. Moreover the tuners lowered the suspension and added a supercharger that is supposed to boost the power by 70 percent.
“The F-150 is rugged and tough, just like the people who serve our country in the military services,” said Rick Spears, owner of Malibu Customz.
