Ford will be showcasing a bevy of decked out Ford Explorers and F-Series models in Las Vegas at SEMA this year, ranging from a firetruck inspired F-350 Super Duty, to a mean, green F-150 machine.
2011 Ford Explorer by Stitchcraft Interiors

This "Business Edition" comes complete with study trays and Alcantara leather seating with special interior accents and door panels. And this time around, business can be mixed with pleasure with Orion Car Audio amps, speakers, and wiring. A two-tone paint scheme - Seaside Collision - is adorned on the exterior and is complemented charcoal and orange side graphics.

The specs, err headlights, are complements of Advanced Automotive Concepts, who used custom LED headlamps for high-tech lighting. Inside, Katzkin Midnight Tuscany leather with perforated Raven Suede accents makes for a plush interior. This entire package is supposed to exude an active sports lifestyle.

LightWurkz worked on the LED headlights, while L&R Autobody took care of the DuPont paint job. Moving inside, orange diamond stitching offers some flair to the custom black leather seats, while a Realm audio system rounds out the interior mods.

Ford Previews Custom Explorers, F Series for SEMA Show imageMatchbox and Superlift Suspension partner up to produce the ultimate off-road machine: The Matchbox Superlift Brush Truck. Sitting atop a 10-inch lift system on 41-inch Interco Irok tires, the "Oh, So Orange" and black powder-coated body is sure to save the day with code-three emergency lights and sirens, and a firefighting utility bed complete with equipment. This hot number will be available in a die-cast version for SEMA visitors that visit the Ford show stand.

2011 Ford F-150 EcoBooost by Skyjacker Suspensions
Ford Previews Custom Explorers, F Series for SEMA Show imageThe eco-conscious and power-hungry can have their cake and eat it too with this "Project No Compromise." Chassis performance is boosted by Skyjacker Suspensions' four-inch lift and monotube shocks, while the powertrain receives a slight upgrade, thanks in part to a MagnaFlow cat-back dual exhaust system. As for visual enhancements, a stainless steel grille guard, a 30-inch LED light bar, and two-inch pocket-style fender flares add a mean and green look.

2011 Ford F-150 by CGS Performance Products
Ford Previews Custom Explorers, F Series for SEMA Show imageDefined by a custom aluminum hood, jet black paint and red finish, this "Tarmac" F-150 is smoking hot. A restyle grille and custom billet wheels complete the look, while red leather seats appear on the inside along with red seat belts and headrest monitors. Mechanically, a cat-back exhaust, cold-air intake, and a Whipple twin-screw supercharger account for a little more oomph, while Bell Tech supplies a front coilover suspension. Six-piston Baer brakes with 15-inch rotors top it off.
