SEMA 2016: A Radical Raptor and Some Sick Super Dutys




More is an understatement at the SEMA show in Las Vegas and Ford is rolling out another round of over the top, after market trucks. Tuners and gear heads got their hands on a 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor and a couple of monster-sized Super Duty trucks for the annual extravaganza.

Here’s a quick look at some of the modified rides that are expected to turn heads (and maybe even a few stomachs) at this year’s show.

Ford’s F-150 Raptor is a great truck stock, but this “Bird of Prey” concept by DeBerti Design looks good and mean with a blackish gray wrap and neon green highlights. The concept was designed get you to the mall or off-roading down at Baja. The Foutz Motorsports team extended the suspension stance by 3-inches on each side, stretched the fenders by 4-inches, and slapped on a set of 40-inch tires on the wheels. Now it seems this Raptor is really ready to fly anywhere you take it.

The hood scoop, fender flares and roof pods on this BASF white and black concept would make any F-Series truck look badass. The two-tone paint gives the bulky F-250 a much sleeker profile despite its Dumbo-sized side mirrors. Bilstein shocks and a ReadyLIFT 3.5-inch leveling kit with twin I-beam drops give the truck a lifted platform. 22-inch Fuel Off-Road wheels and beefy tires complete the classic look.

Project Shockzilla by Fabtech wants to be “King of the Off-Road Beasts” and the modified F-250 would be at right at home in the mud bogs or swamps of South Jersey. Though we aren’t completely sold on the flashy paint job and bronze grille, once it’s completely covered in mud, it won’t matter. Aside from mudding, this Super Duty beast can roll plenty of coal thanks to its 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel engine. Best to keep it parked in the garage on Earth Day.

This fast and flashy Ford F-250 by TSI Designs in silver with a black racing stripe and red trim looks killer. The 4×2-customized cab sports a wide-body kit and custom-fabricated fenders, which add a few inches to the front and rear, giving the Super Duty an aggressive stance. 26-inch Forgiato wheels and a full Katzkin custom leather interior will keep you cruising on down the Las Vegas Strip in style and comfort.

This luxury F-350 Super Duty is billed as “MAD Luxury with a Tow-Truck Attitude.” The Jet Black paint with Candy Red flare almost works — except for its wheels. The 28-inch one-piece Fuel forged alloy wheels up front would be trashed the first time you pull up to the curb. Looks like an expensive fix too, “brah.” Interior accents are said to mirror the exterior, with gloss-black and red-painted dash, center console, and door panel inserts.

Toy trucks are always cool, but toy police trucks are even cooler. This Ford F-350 Super Duty 4×4 XL Crew Cab concept by MBX350 Matchbox is not all show, but also ready for duty. The fully functioning police and tactical unit is every cop’s dream ride. Can’t you just see Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson behind the wheel? It’s equipped with a camper shell with a 72-inch roof rack to store tactical gear. Plus, there’s a pull out bed slide, truck vault and tactical breaching tools. You don’t want to mess with whoever is driving this thing.

Stay tuned for more wild vehicles coming from the annual SEMA show in Las Vegas next week.
