The Ford Super Duty is the ultimate work truck before jumping into the heavy commercial rigs. From pulling flatbed trailers loaded with valuable cargo, to loading up on tons of mulch for the park, there’s not much The Blue Oval’s biggest truck can’t do. And it does it well with plenty of comfort, performance, and technology for everyone to enjoy. Thus, it makes the perfect platform for some wild SEMA Show builds. One such example coming to the 2021 SEMA Show next week is the Mad Industries F-450 Super Duty Platinum.
Based upon a 2022 Ford F-450 Super Duty Platinum Crew Cab with four-wheel drive and a Ford 6.7L Power Stroke turbo-diesel V8, the Mad Industries F-450 Super Duty Platinum was built to be the ultimate hauler for fun. A huge lift with coil-overs, air bags, and upgraded sway bars all raise the body and bed several inches off the ground, yet provide a comfortable ride. The set of forged blue wheels and low-profile off-road tires offer a splash of color against the white body and blacked-out trim. The bed includes a fifth-wheel for towing the heaviest fun machines around, and the bed can carry more fun, too.
All that fun comes with a lot of potential for bumps and scrapes, from on- and off-loading gear, to driving through the wrong spot at the wrong time. The Mad Industries F-450 Super Duty Platinum can handle whatever’s thrown at it, though, thanks to a trip to the Ford Performance parts rack. A portable air compressor, front tow hooks, electric retractable bed cover, bed cleats, swing cases, rear and side flip-down bed steps, splash guards, wheel well liners, and spray-in bedliner all protect the toys and the truck from the slings and arrows of fun. Spotlights, trailer camera, a fridge/freezer combo, rear seat cover, and pet hammock bring plenty of creature comforts and tech to the party. We certainly can’t wait to see this on the show floor of SEMA 2021.
