Aftermarket companies often rely on inspiration before they set out and build a project. For Fatal Clothing — it isn’t so much a car tuner as it is an actual clotting brand — inspiration came essentially from home, specifically Southern California.
Together with Hulst Customs, which has its own project pickup at SEMA, Fatal Clothing went about the business of building a pretty impressive program for the Ford F-150. The custom paintwork Fatal Clothings did to the F-150, specifically on the rear doors, is straight out of one of its nutty t-shirt designs. The white-black two-tone finish with the matching lime trimming adds an element of depth and character to the pickup. The exterior details are rounded out by a set of 24-inch, custom-fit DUB Wheels from MHT Wheels and wrapped in Falken tires.
Moving to the interior, Fatal Clothings made good use of Katzkin leather, custom-painted panels and Fatal Clothing artwork, including the company’s logo, which were embroidered in the seats.
Under the hood of the F-150 is a 6.2-liter, V-8 engine that Fatal Clothing whipped up to insane performance levels, thanks to a twin-screw supercharger from Whipple Industries and performance exhaust system from CGS Motorsports. With these upgrades in tow, the F-150 is now capable of hitting a staggering 650 horsepower.

When it comes to American originals, the Ford F-150 holds esteem as one of America’s premier pickup trucks. For 2014 model, Ford continues that tradition with an F-150 that maintains this reputation, thanks to having more cab, bed, engine, drivetrain and available options than comprehensible.
Powered by either a 3.7-liter V-6; a 5.0-liter V-8; a 6.2-liter V-8; or the high-tech 3.5-liter, EcoBoost V-6, the F-150 can achieve up to 23 mpg highway (3.7-liter) and pull up to 11,300 pounds (3.5-liter EcoBoost and 6.2-liter V-8)
Perhaps one of Ford’s biggest hits of late is the F-150 Raptor with its Fox Racing suspension, big tires, and strong 6.2-liter V-8. Pricing for a base F-150 starts at $24,215 and climbs steeply to over $55,000 for the Limited trim.

The style of the street and Southern California lifestyle was used by Fatal Clothing to modify the Ford F-150. Working with Hulst Customs, Fatal Clothing amped the appearance and performance of the F-150 by giving it custom paint work, hood and body kit, as well as fitting its 6.2-liter V8 engine with a twin-screw supercharger from Whipple Industries and a performance exhaust system from CGS Motorsports producing 650 horsepower. The two-tone black and white custom colors were matched with Fatal Clothing graphics and badging. The leather interior is complemented by custom-painted panels and Fatal Clothing artwork. The vision for the F-150 was to create a vehicle that would stick in a person’s mind, creating a modified look that has a clean design, said Bill Gaylord, owner of Fatal Clothing.
