Ford Shows Off a Quintet of Badass Super Duty Pickups
The group includes subtle customs and wild off-roaders.
SEMA 2019 is just a few weeks away, and Ford has already teased some pretty sweet Ranger and hit-and-miss SUV projects it's bringing to the show. Now, the Blue Oval has announced it's bringing five custom F-Series Super Duty rigs to the annual tuner symposium. The Super Duties will join around 50 other FoMoCo vehicles in total, including SUVs and a host of Mustangs, at Ford's massive stand at the event. Check out the heavy-duty F-Series truck builds that will be on display in just a few weeks' time.
LGE-CTS Motorsports Baja Forged Ford F-250 Super Duty Crew Cab XLT
Ford calls this Super Duty the "Swiss army knife for the modern adventurer—functioning as a mobile command center, campsite and workshop." A utility bench area combined with an LGE-CTS Motorsports rear canopy replaces the standard pickup bed. The utilitarian Ford rides on a 4.5-inch Stage 7 Icon suspension lift kit and 18-inch Method Race wheels in bronze to contrast the olive drab paint job. The truck also comes with a vehicle safe by Ford Accessories, Pelican protective gear, and BOXO tools to boot. We're thinking the rendering could have been executed better, but there's no doubt it shows promise.
Ford Accessories F-250 Super Duty Tremor Crew Cab with Black Appearance Package
This build is based on the new 2020 F-250 Tremor, which is essentially an off-road-capable Super Duty. The Tremor comes standard with a limited-slip front differential, a locking differential on the back axle, four-wheel drive with selectable drive modes, 35-inch Wrangler Duratrac tires, a 2-inch front-end lift from the factory, Tremor graphics, and, Ford says, the best approach and departure angles of any Super Duty ever. This rig takes that off-road mission one step further, adding a Ford Performance Warn winch, Ford Performance chase rack, a 50-inch Rigid LED light bar, and Raptor-style side steps to give it a tougher look.
DeBerti Design Ford F-450 Super Duty Platinum Crew Cab
The only dually in the group, the DeBerti Design F-450 is also the toughest-looking truck of the lot. It's matte gray all over with a host of Rigid LED lights to ensure your work site is always well lit. It also rides on air suspension and looks as though it's been slammed right down onto its 22-inch American Force wheels wrapped in 37-inch Toyo tires. It's also got DeBerti Design's pull-out bumper drawer and a dual pull-out fender/cabinet to ensure practicality isn't at all compromised.
BDS Suspension Ford F-350 Super Duty Crew Cab XLT
The ultimate overlander's F-350, project Go Beyond is designed to enable you to go literally anywhere. The purpose-built rig is powered by Ford's 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel V-8 for extended exploration. It has also been lifted via a set of Fox 2.5 factory race Dual Speed Compression coilovers and sits on truly massive 40-inch tires mounted on 20-inch Method Race wheels.
The bed of the truck has been outfitted to accommodate life when you want to leave civilization behind. Out back, you'll find a Knapheide aluminum service box to hold everything you might need for an extended stay in the wild. The box holds a hard-shell tent complete with an awning, a refrigerator, two-burner gas grill with a custom mount for a propane tank, and a whole host of other mods. If you wanted to go off-roading for days on end in a massive heavy-duty truck, this is the rig for you.
CGS Performance Products Ford F-250 Super Duty Tremor Crew Cab with Black Appearance Package
This truck sports a relatively subdued appearance, especially when compared to the rest of the trucks here. That said, this F-250 is designed to make off-roading in the 2020 Tremor F-250 easier and more stylish. CGS adds custom red Sikkens paint, 20-inch Grid wheels wrapped in 37-inch General tires to improve the stance and traction when heading off-road, and a Rigid Adapt LED light bar and back-up lights to make rear visibility the least of your concerns in the dark. It also has the longest name of any truck ever, probably.
