2011 Ford Explorer by Tjin
We recently saw Ford’s customized small car lineup
set for debut next week at the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, and today the automaker is previewing its vehicles from the other end of the spectrum--pickups and SUVs.
The focus is on the 2011 F-Series pickup range and 2011 Explorer SUV, and once again the theme is over the top customization.
Three Ford Explorer SUVs and four F-Series pickups will be on display, showing off the extreme versatility of their respective lineups.
For its Explorers, Ford has called upon the guys at Stitchcraft Interiors, DSO Eyewear, and Tjin, and has come away with three very different designs.
Stitchcraft has themed its vehicle a “Business Edition”, adding plenty of leather and Alcantara trim, an Orion Car Audio stereo, and a custom Seaside Collision paint scheme for the exterior.
DSO Eyewear’s vehicle is a lot more fashionable, picking up a lowered suspension kit, 24-inch wheels, a Pearl White paint scheme and Katzkin lined leather interior.
Finally, Tjin adds an industrial look to the Explorer with 24-inch wheel wheels, LightWurkz LED headlights, Eibach suspension, and uprated Baer brakes.
As for the customized pickups, there are two F-150s and two F-350 Super Duty models to greet SEMA attendees. Their modifications include suspension lift kits, scissor doors, and everything in between.
Starting with the F-150 EcoBoost by Skyjacker Suspensions, designers have added four-inch lift and monotube shocks, a MagnaFlow exhaust, Bushwacker fender flares, and a custom stainless steel grille guard from Steelcraft.
The second F-150 is the creation of CGS Performance Products and it gets a custom aluminum hood, Jet Black paint, Colorado Custom billet wheels, a Whipple twin-screw supercharger, Baer brakes with 15-inch rotors, and a Bell Tech front coilover suspension setup. In other words, it's seriously badass.
Moving on to the F-350 Super Duty pickups, we have one from Superlift Suspensions and another from Hulst Customs. Both get custom paint jobs, oversized wheels, and in the case of the Hulst Customs a set of suicide doors at the rear and scissor doors up front.
