Ready for the Moab Easter Jeep Safari!

The 2017 SEMA Show was packed with modified pickup trucks, but none was as spectacular as this EcoBoost-powered rock climber built by CJ Pony Parts. The aftermarket parts supplier has been a constant presence in Las Vegas in recent years, showcasing a restomod 1965 Ford Mustang built with TMI Products, a custom Focus ST with Ford, and a beefed up Mustang EcoBoost with Ford Performance. In 2017, CJ Pony Parts chose to stay away from the car performance realm and opted to create a stunning off-road-equipped F-150 pickup truck.

Already a solid truck thanks to its aluminum body, leading technology, and fuel-efficient engines, the F-150 is now able to tackle the Moab Easter Jeep Safari alongside the most hardcore Jeep Wranglers out there. CJ Pony Parts says that its goal with this build was to create something "that not only looked tough but can back up that look with massive off-road capability," it seems that the result matches the description. Exterior upgrades are numerous, starting with Lund fender flares, custom two-tone paint with orange graphics, and a rear differential cover. There’s also a T-Rex grille; Rigid Radiance LED lights, Rock Slider side steps, and new Stealth Fighter and Honey Badger bumpers front and rear. The truck also features an Oracle Lighting ColorShift LED underbody lighting kit.

The list of accessories continues inside with a Raptor steering wheel with orange stitching, Ford Performance door sill plates, custom headrests with CJ Pony Parts logo, and orange accents on the dashboard, door panels, center console, and floor mats. But the really important upgrades were operated under the skin.

Two-piece wheels, BFG T/A KM2 Tires
Performance has been improved using a Borla dual side-exit exhaust system, and aFE Momentum GT Stage 2 cold air intake, and a Bully Dog GT Platinum gas tuner.

This pickup truck uses the same 3.5-liter V-6 EcoBoost engine and 10-speed automatic transmission as the production model, but there’s no word whether it’s the standard unit or the high-output version. The former generates 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet, while the latter cranks out 450 horses and 510 pound-feet. But no matter the drivetrain, performance has been improved using a Borla dual side-exit exhaust system, and aFE Momentum GT Stage 2 cold air intake, and a Bully Dog GT Platinum gas tuner.

The enhanced off-road capability comes from a ReadyLift seven-inch lift kit with SST3000 shocks and Custom Power suspension by PA Powder Works. The standard wheels have been replaced by two-piece, forged 20-inch rollers wrapped in BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 tires. A spare wheel was mounted in the bed in case one goes flat while climbing rocks. Arguably the most off-road capable vehicle at the 2017 SEMA Show, CJ’s F-150 is a sight to behold!
