OEM manufacturers displaying at the SEMA tradeshow each year are not only looking to show off their latest models but see how other companies and custom builders can enhance their features and designs. The CGS Motorsports crew out of Chino, California, run by father and son team Ron and Casey Scranton are no strangers to enhancing the design, performance, and style of cars and trucks alike. This past year for the SEMA show, CGS had the opportunity to showcase a newer truck model for the Ford Motor Company by putting their own spin on it.

The latest Ford F150 trucks feature an all-aluminum body and cutting-edge design. CGS and their team, which includes Robert Henry, wanted to highlight the aluminum in the truck design. Starting with a '16 F150 Lariat crew cab, Andy Meeh sprayed out Axalta Aston Martin Silver before applying Jet Black accents throughout. Additional candy red brushed accents flowed over the mirrors, window trim, and on the set of 24x10-inch Savini Forged SV60 wheels wrapped in Pirelli rubber.

This truck was built to tow and work and to increase the efficiency of the turbos when under load, the EcoBoost engine was upgraded with a Whipple intercooler. They also installed a CGS cat-back, ceramic-coated 3-inch exhaust system. Air Lift helper ’bags along with the McGaughys 3/5 lowering suspension complete the suspension and ensure full towing capabilities. Upgrades were kept simple in the interior, as the Lariat already provided plenty of luxuries. The heated and cooled seats were outfitted with custom Alea Leather with silver accents to match the theme of the truck.

The truck debuted in the Ford booth at the SEMA show with a huge splash, showcasing the new truck design and highlighting the aluminum body features. Keep an eye on CGS, they always have a cool project—or two—up their sleeve.
