Every year, Motorsports Authority selects a vehicle to feature at the SEMA show and regional shows and loads it with a dizzying amount of high-quality aftermarket parts. This 2015 F-150 Lariat was built for the 2015 SEMA show, and after making its debut at regional shows, it’s now retired. Motorsports Authority had it listed on eBay at a starting price of $40K with a reserve price of $65K.

Featured in the July 2016 edition of Street Trucks Magazine, this truck is nothing to scoff at. It’s loaded with cosmetic and off-road upgrades. Let’s take a look at some of the best ones.

Cosmetic/Comfort Upgrades

If you think that this F-150 doesn’t look quite like the stock version, you’re correct. Motorsports Authority made a bunch of cosmetic upgrades to set it apart from the rest.

  • aFe finned aluminum differential covers
  • Black, white, and red paint on the body
  • Fab Fours’ Vengeance series front and rear bumpers

Custom Ford lariat interior

The F-150 is famous for its extremely comfortable interior, but Motorsports Authority still decided to amp up the comfort factor with the following upgrades:

  • Roadwire leather seats
  • Ride Controller RC8 unit
  • Dual 8” subwoofers
  • Custom box built by Audio Innovations

Off-Road Mods

The engine bay remains untouched, which isn’t a surprise at all because 1) the truck’s practically brand new and 2) it’s a Ford, which means everything under the hood is already well built. The chassis, however, is a different story. Look under the truck, and you’ll find loads of upgrades made specifically for off-roading.

The suspension system boasts Atlas leaf springs and Icon Vehicle Dynamics 2.5 coil-overs with remote reservoir shocks. That, along with the American Force wheels and Nitto Trail Grapplers, will take the truck over pretty much any terrain.

Other off-road mods include a Magnaflow side exit exhaust system, Yukon 4:56 gears, and Powerstop brake rotors and tow pads. This truck is nothing short of an off-roading beast.
