Ford F-Series Pickups awarded Hottest Trucks at SEMA - Web Exclusive

Ford F-Series pickups were officially recognized as the “Hottest Truck” at the 2011 SEMA aftermarket trade show in Las Vegas, for the second year in a row.

The SEMA Award honors vehicles that specialty equipment manufacturers believe are the best platforms for accessorizing. It also recognizes the most popular vehicles that feature in displays during the weeklong show.

Before this year’s show opened, SEMA officials walked the floor and physically counted the number of trucks exhibited in booths. More Ford F-Series pickups were on display than any other truck.

Among the trucks that got special recognition at the show were the 2011 Ford F-350 Super Duty by Superlift Suspensions, which teamed up with Matchbox to transform a Super Duty into the Matchbox Superlift Brush Truck.

Superlift stayed true to its off-road roots with a 10” lift system on 41” Interco IROK tires.

Shown in a PPG Vibrance “Oh, So Orange” basecoat with a contrasting satin-black powdercoated accent, the two-tone paint grabbed attention.

It was up to the job of fighting fires with code-three emergency lights and sirens, along with a firefighting utility bed and equipment. SEMA visitors were able to receive a miniature diecast version of the truck by visiting the Ford booth. By contrast, the 2011 Ford F-350 Super Duty called “Black Mamba” by Hulst Customs was down and dirty.

It was designed to show off luxury and style with Hulst Customs-designed hood and grille with stainless steel mesh insert. It also had Hulst side sills and lower front apron with Radiantz LED lighting.

Additionally, the truck featured suicide rear doors with Scissor Doors billet hinge kit. Planet Color custom black paint along with 3M Di-Noc stainless graphics appeared on the exterior. The interior was upholstered by Katzkin leather and Hulst Customs aluminum trim accents.
