SEMA 2019 Ford Trucks #MTSEMA19
From big and bulletproof to tracked and tricked
SEMA 2019 filled Las Vegas, Nevada with cars, trucks, and everything that goes "vroom." We put on our proverbial horse blinders and took a lap around the show looking for all things Ford, whether they were lifted, leveled, tracked, tricked, or bulletproofed—we pointed a camera at them.
Meet the Guhrka, an armor-clad behemoth from Terradyne armored vehicles. Built on a Ford F-450 chassis, the rig is said to send small arms fire pinging off while occupants sit in luxurious comfort. Extras include a Warn 16,500-pound winch, 335/80R20 Goodyear rubber, onboard air with frame-mounted chucks, and a full powertrain warranty.
How many total feet of rubber tracks are used on this build between the truck itself and its payload of toys? We lost track (pun intended) of the numbers after 20 feet, feel free to extrapolate on your own. The rig was outfitted with a special-order Lariat package, a Smittybilt M1A2 Heavy Duty Modular Truck Bumper, Smittybilt XRC GEN3 winch, a Sparks Motors custom-built suspension complemented by Pro Comp lighting, 2.5 piggyback coilovers, custom fiberglass parts from Starr Creations, a Highway Products bed, and Camso rubber tracks.
It's almost as if Sinister Diesel took a Ford Raptor and inflated it a bit for SEMA 2019, resulting in an increased dosage of cool. The all-aluminum body panels are built to keep the 46-inch tires under the truck while the 6.7L Powerstroke supplies the power.
The folks at BDS Suspension are no strangers to building big Ford trucks, and this time, their F-350 serves as basecamp and a telescope platform. Read more about this adventure-capable truck here HERE.
Ford described this Tremor-based build as "rock crushing and adventure-ready." It comes with some of the largest tires to come stock on a 4x4, 33 inches of water fording capability, Ford's Trail Control, a Warn winch, and much more.
