#MTSEMA18 - Tool, Not A Toy

Posted in Events on November 1, 2018

Pacing through the SEMA show yields a fair share of blindingly shiny and polished show rigs, some that may never see as much as a gravel parking lot. So, when something on the show floor lacks that freshly detailed gleam, somehow, our 4x4 senses are called to action.

This truck, found in the Ford booth, is a tool, not a toy.

Using a 2019 Ford F-250 XLT SRW Crew Cab FX4 as the base, Los Angeles-based Wilderness Collective began by lifting the truck 2.5 inches with an ICON Vehicle Dynamics Stage 5 kit. The frontend includes an upgraded track bar, Warn manual hubs, and Hellwig sway bars.

The truck rolls around on 20-inch Fifteen52 TurboMac wheels and 37-inch Toyo Open Country M/T rubbers.

The front bumper is adorned with 12,000 pounds of pulling power, thanks to the Warn M12 winch and steel rope.

Onboard air for refilling aired-down tires comes from a discreetly mounted pair of ARB compressors. The truck comes ready for work with a cab rack, bed rack, rooftop tent, and in-bed fuel transfer tanks to increase the truck’s range.

Work at night is no problem with the RIGID lightbar, spots, and floods punching through the darkness.

Stay tuned to and our social pages for more SEMA 2018 updates! #MTSEMA18
