2009 Ford F-150 Striker R SuperCrew

This custom Ford F-150 was inspired by the Ford Mustang GT500KR, and it will be on display at the 2008 SEMA Show next week.

The front end gets a black anodized diamond mesh grille, and twin hood intakes accentuate its aggressive looks. Billet front fender vents and side scoops for brake cooling also give the truck a racing look. Le Man-style race stripes in "Badass Blue" run the length of the truck. Inside, Katzkin Leather matches the silver and blue exterior colors with silver and blue leather surfaces and seats. Matching floor coverings, aluminum racing pedals, and auxiliary gauges are also standard. Sony supplies its Xplod in-car entertainment system.

Powering the Striker R is the 5.4L V-8 engine with a Kenne Bell 2.4L Blowzilla supercharger. The intercooled system puts out 500 hp with the additional assistance from a cold air intake, Boost-a-Pump, and an Optimizer II electronic engine management system. A Corsa Cat-Back exhaust system puts the finishing touches on the engine enhancements.

A Bell Tech suspension package gives the full-size truck excellent handling. The rear differential stays cool and good-looking with a custom Striker R alloy cover. Rounding out the rest of the truck are sets of eight-piston brake calipers supplied by Stainless Steel Brakes Corp, which clamp down on 15-in. Big Bite cross-drilled rotors. The Striker R's 22-in. custom alloy wheels and tires are both supplied by Pirelli. Rubber of choice are Pirelli's high-performance Scorpion Zero Assimmetrico tires.
