Ford Strikers by Hulst Customs
The Oregon based design studio Hulst Customs have just introduced their Striker models based on the Ford F-150 and F-350 Dually. Both trucks receive 15 piece body kits designed by Hulst and are covered in Striker Silver with two bold blue stripes running the length of either vehicle. The F-150 rides nicely on its multi-piece twelve spoke rims from Rodtana while the F-350 is sitting pretty on a set of 24 inch American Force forged alloys.
Press release after the jump.
Introducing the new 2009 Ford F-150 and F-350 Strikers, the award winning sport trucks you can own! Created by Hulst Customs, the Strikers are based on the new 2009 Ford F-150 SuperCrew and the 2008 F-350 Crew Cab Dually. Equipped respectively with a 5.4 liter Triton V8 and a Powerstroke Turbo Diesel, the Striker’s subscribe to the hot rodders adage that if a lot of power is just enough, then more is even better. Both of these sport trucks shake the asphalt with the kind of torque and horsepower that are a tribute to the Ford racing legacy that inspired their image.
The appearance of the Striker’s doesn’t merely hint at the rippling power beneath their sensuous skins, it conveys it loud and clear. Both trucks are enhanced with the comprehensive 15 piece Striker custom body kit by Hulst Customs that’s smothered in Sherwin-Williams Planet Color Striker Silver, and accented with Badass Blue stripes that run the entire length of the vehicles.
Details abound on both Striker’s, including unique front fascias, black anodized diamond wire accented grille shells, heat extractors on the front fenders, scoops in front of the rear wheels, rocker cladding and even custom cab clearance lights on the F-350. Gaylord’s Lids are featured on both vehicles and provide safe lockage storage, while enhancing fuel economy.
Rolling stock on the F-350 consists of American Force 24 inch forged dually wheels, while Rodtana created the custom multi piece wheels for the F-150. Both wheel designs feature an abundant amount of exposed surface area to insure the SSBC enhanced disc brakes receive plenty of fresh cool air. DJM Suspension provides the “just right” stance on both vehicles, working in concert with Pirelli Scorpion Zero Assimetrico tires for unrivaled corner carving capability, while flattering the extreme body lines of the Striker’s.
The interior of both Striker’s feature glove soft Katzkin custom leather seating that provides the perfect complement to the vehicle exteriors. In addition, audiophiles will appreciate the Sony Xplod audio / video entertainment systems that are matched with Quiet Ride Solutions AcoustiShield insulation for the ultimate sound experience.
The Ford F-150 and F-350 Striker’s demand a larger than life adventure. More than a mere weekend glide up the interstate, the Striker’s are ready to run the four mile course at Road America and duke it out with some pony cars and maybe even a Cobra or two!
