It’s fall once again, which means Halloween-themed merchandise flooding the aisles of your local Target and Walmart, pumpkin-spice everything, and, for gearheads, the annual SEMA Show in Las Vegas. One of the OEMs that has consistently had a prominent presence at the show is Ford, and the twin pillars of the company’s SEMA presence are the Mustang and F-150. This year, Ford is showcasing four customized F-150s, each with a different theme. Two have a 3.5L EcoBoost V-6 underhood, and two are packing a supercharged 5.0L V-8. Here’s more details on the trucks below.

Giving the truck an aggressive stance is a Hulst Customs air suspension with Aire Jax valves, a custom rear four-link suspension, and 26-inch Lexani Monza wheels on 295/30-26 front and 305/40-26 rear tires.
