Aftermarket F-150s Prepared for SEMA

Besides the fully electric car prepared by Ford for the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show to take place in Las Vegas, aftermarket companies will also debut a couple of customized models which are supposed to “showcase new F-150's versatility,” as Ford said in a press statement.

DEWALT's F-150 is regarded as the “ultimate contractor's truck” and comes with a couple of new features such as a built-in charger for battery-powered tools and Ford's Works Solutions Tool Link.

“At DEWALT, we are obsessed with developing innovative solutions for the professional contractor that will deliver productivity on the job site,” she said. “We have thoroughly thought through how a contractor uses his or her truck on the job, and we’ve worked hard to integrate every application into the truck.”

The Fahrenheit F-150 has upgraded exterior with “hot flame” graphics plus a fully-functional winch with a maximum supported weight of 9,000 lb. Beside that, X'Treme Toyz's F-150 has a Bedslide sliding cargo drawer providing quick access to the toolbox, the tire and a small compressor.

“You can basically put all of your toys in the truck, hook up the trailer and go. And with the winch on both ends of the truck, you can get pulled in either direction if you get stuck,” Mike Duval, owner of X’Treme Toyz described his own creation.

The interior is pretty much the same on all F-150s, mostly thanks to the fact that Ford did a very good job when it design the interior, according to aftermarket companies. “I didn’t do a whole lot to the interior because the factory did such a fantastic job with the vehicle right out of the gate. It’s got a great stereo system, Ford SYNC and a variety of other creature comforts,” Duval added.
