Ford Previews Four Concept Trucks Ahead of SEMA
Wild styling and custom features take the headlines.by Mark McNabb, on
Ford revealed four wild concept F-150s ahead of November’s SEMA show. As a remember, the Specialty Equipment Market Association holds an annual fall expo in Las Vegas attended by nearly every major automaker and aftermarket parts supplier in the industry. It all boils down to a showcase of the latest add-on equipment folks can purchase for their ride. Everything from pimped out Lambos to serious Jeeps are present.
Ford’s four concept trucks each take a different approach to styling. The Hulst Customs EraThr3 F-150 is a lowered truck with huge wheels and a custom paint job. The Bojix Design F-150 XLT 4x4 is more off-road ready thanks to a tall suspension lift, steel bumpers, LED light bars, and mud-terrain tires. A bit more “out there” is the A.R.E. Accessories F-150 XLT 4x4. It feature some of the company’s latest designs like the CX Series bed topper. Lastly, the Adrenaline Rush F-150 Lariat 4x4 is a BMX-themed truck with a modest lift, huge wheels, and a custom, two-toned paint job.
If you didn’t gather, each truck is customized by an aftermarket company with their own unique styling and products.
Let’s have a look below.

Hulst Customs EraThr3 F-150
The EraThr3 is all street. Its lowered stance is enhanced by Hulst’s custom front bumper, grille, and hood vents. A carbon fiber splitter on the front bumper matches the rear bumpers height. An air suspension gives the truck its stance while 26-inch Lexani Monza wheels wrapped in 295-series front and 305-series rear tires finish off the look. Power isnt’ an issue either. This F-150’s 5.0-liter V-8 boasts a whipple supercharger and a custom exhaust for a power output of 750 horsepower. Katzkin leather graces the interior and a kicker subwoofer pumps out the bass. Of course, there are a ton more features and parts to this truck that we’ll cover as SEMA takes place.
Bojix Design F-150 XLT 4x4
The Bojix Design truck features a huge, seven-inch lift from ReadyLift, complete with Fox Racing shocks, upgraded axles and gears, 22-inch Grid Off-Road GF-2 wheels with 37-inch mud terrain tires. The custom front bumper features twin LED light bars and a huge skid plate. A bed drawer system keeps tools and gear stored neatly and a one-off pant job gives the truck a unique look. Other accessories include bed ramps, a BedRug bed liner, and an interior full of Katzkin leather.
A.R.E. Accessories F-150 XLT 4x4
A.R.E is a huge company that makes all sorts of aftermarket parts for trucks, including bed toppers and bug guards. This particular truck rides on a Skyjacker suspension flit with airbags and features 24-inch wheels with mud terrain tires. The A.R.E CX Series bed topper features the TopperEXLift cap lift system, too. The bed also features LED lighting and Lizard Skin spray-on insulation. A one-off paint job ties the whole thing together. The EcoBoost V-6 get a power increase from Bully Dog performance with new Corsa intake and exhaust systems.
Adrenaline Rush F-150 Lariat 4x4
This truck might be the most practical and reasonable truck of the bunch. It has a “mild” six-inch lift with 20-inch wheels and 37-inch General tires. LED exterior lighting helps dispel darkness and a power-retractable tonneau cover keeps gear and cargo from getting muddy. Inside, Alea leather covers the seats and dual headrest monitors keep rear seat passengers entertained. Power comes from Ford’s 5.0-liter V-8 packed with a Whipple supercharger breathing through a 132-mm throttle body.
