Operator Edition F-150: Dominating Road Armor’s SEMA 2015 Booth

Vehicles used by operators in the war against terror can be anything from a small SUV to a fullsize pickup truck. This Operator Edition 2015 Ford F-150 is a tribute to special operators, and it was in the Road Armor booth at the 2015 SEMA Show. The truck featured some of the mods incorporated into vehicles built and used by U.S. Special Forces. It’s a collaboration of Road Armor, Operator Custom Works, and Starwood Motors.

Under the hood is a supercharged engine that kicks out 600 hp, and that power is needed to haul the heavy rig. The truck is fit with, among many other things, a Baja Safari rack, winch, a number of Rigid lights, infrared lighting (so the operators can use night-vision goggles), lots of storage, and a turret-mounted minigun that fires up to 3,000 rounds per minute.

We’re told that operators especially liked the Road Armor bumpers, like the one on this rig, because those tough units were able to endure harsh combat use.

Watch the included video that includes Scott Neil, owner of Operator Custom Works, telling us more about this incredible truck.

The Baja Safari rack holds a variety of items including Rigid LED lights, infrared lighting, spare tire, Hi-Lift jack, and turret-mounted minigun.
