On the surface, this Ford F-250 that Hulst Customs worked on looks like it didn’t receive too much of an aftermarket upgrade that’s deserving of a spot at the 2013 SEMA Auto Show.

But don’t sleep on what Hulst did to this Ford pickup. There’s a lot to like about what the tuner did, specifically the dressed-up interior that belies the rugged and mean package of the exterior. The most prominent upgrade to the Striker — yes, it’s called the Striker! — is the addition of a two-tone Katzkin leather that’s complemented by custom-painted panels and chrome accents.

Moving to the performance enhancements, Hulst Customs made use of Banks Power performance upgrades that includes a water-methanol injection system and a Monster exhaust systems that essentially took the F-250’s 6.7-liter, V-8 diesel and turned into a grunting powerhouse that you can proudly show off to anybody who comes across the pickup.

A new set of 22-inch wheels from American Rebel MFG round out the package, putting a worth exclamation mark on a program that has far more substance than you would’ve expected.

The 2014 model of the F-Series Super Duty, which consists of the F-250 and F-350, doesn’t do much in the way of aesthetic improvements. Instead, Ford focused on giving the new model minor improvements to the braking system, including bigger rotors and a larger parking brake.

The F-Series Super Duty also comes to the party with an optional 6.7-liter, V-8 diesel that produces 400 horsepower and an incredible 800 pound-feet of torque. The engine is connected to a heavy-duty TorqShift six-speed automatic transmission, allowing the pickup to hit 0-60 mph in around 8.5 seconds to go with a top speed of 120 mph.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
