Ford is heading to this year’s SEMA Show with 6 Ranger pickups that have been customized to the nines.
Every year, SEMA showcases the best of the best in aftermarket automotive parts and accessories. Every carmaker both large and small heads to the Las Vegas Convention Center in early November to showcase their wares and latest designs.
Ford is no different. Since the Ford Ranger just arrived at dealerships this year, plenty of tuner garages and aftermarket parts suppliers have had a chance to use the new midsize chassis to make something truly special and bring it to Vegas.
This year, Ford will showcase 6 designs based on the Ranger, starting with the Yakima Ranger from parts supplier Yakima. Focusing on the Ranger's sportiness, Yakima gave the Ranger a Fox off-road suspension leveling kit providing 2 inches of lift in the front. A cat-back exhaust helps the engine breathe a little easier, while a recovery kit helps out if a buddy gets down and out in a ditch. Fuel Recoil off-road wheels with 33” BFGoodrich T/A KO2 tires and Rigid LED lighting let this Ranger conquer any kind of terrain.
But as they say, the party is in the back. A JayLow kayak mount and HangOver vertical bike carrier with BackSwing mount lets the Yakima Ranger carry a full complement of adventure tools for a weekend of fun.
Next we have Advanced Accessory Concept's Ford Ranger. Again the focus is on the great outdoors, with new AFN bumpers, skid plates, rock sliders, and a Ford Performance rear diff cover providing protection while it crawls over rocky surfaces. An AFN aluminum tray bed with canopy contains a Tepui HyBox tent and a 50-quart refrigerator, making this Ranger a home away from home.
Finally, it wouldn't be Ford if they didn't bring their own home-brewed Ranger filled with Ford Performance parts. This pickup takes a page out of the European Raptor Ranger playbook by using the export model's wheels and BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2 all-terrain tires, along with a 2-inch front lift. A complicated light kit covers the entire front quarter of the truck in Rigid LED lights from bumper to fender, making sure everywhere this pickup goes is well illuminated.
Another Tepui HyBox rooftop tent and a refrigerator/freezer combo let anyone get away from it all without having to sleep on the ground.
You can catch these pickups and three more at this year's SEMA Show, starting November 5th.
