SEMA 2008 – SSE F-150 Lariat…

October 8, 2008

As a yearly SEMA tradition, Street Scene Equipment (SSE) president, Mike Spagnola, will be unveiling a hot version of an automakers latest vehicle. The show cars and trucks that Spagnola and his team build help set the aftermarket design trends that will last the life of that model. And for the 2008 show, Mike has chosen Ford’s new 2009 F-150 Lariat.

Sketch & details after the jump…Now if you haven’t heard of SSE, they are a Californian-based aftermarket parts supplier, supplying things from custom hoods, grilles and replacement bumpers to fog lights, roll pans and wiper cowls plus numerous other products.

Anyways, this slammed Lariat project is still under construction with the final product not being completed until the November event. But to tire us over, here is a sketch of what the final product may look like:

Here are the details thanks to PickUpTrucks.com:

“The SSE F-150 will be a rolling showcase of potential exterior tweaks for Ford’s new half-ton. It will wear SSE’s in-house-designed bumper cover, side skirt package, wiper cowl, roll pan, hidden hitch, Cal-Vu mirrors, black chrome grille and lower valance, bed caps, and tailgate wing and handle relocator.

SSE is working with Ground Force Suspensions to drop the F-150 to the pavement. DuPont is supplying its Hot Hues Paints. The stock wheels will be replaced with Fesler Wheels’ three-piece FS 906 rims, 24X9 inches up front, and 24X10 inches in back. Yokohama is supplying the rubber: P295/35R24 front and P315/34R24 rear.
Inside, Auto Extras will trim the dash and doors with carbon fibre. Rosen Entertainment is supplying a set of headrest video monitors, and Audio Innovations is upgrading the truck’s stereo with a high-end infotainment system.

An Air Raid intake system and MagnaFlow exhaust kit will be installed to enhance the SSE F-150’s 5.4-litre V8, six-speed automatic powertrain.”
