The SEMA Cares ’17 Ford F-250 Super Duty SuperCab XLT 4x4, built at the SEMA Garage in Diamond Bar, California, will be auctioned at Barrett-Jackson, Thursday, January 18, in Scottsdale, Arizona, with the proceeds benefitting the Childhelp children’s charity.
The truck, equipped with a 6.7L Power Stroke V8 diesel, was tuned at aFe Power in Corona, California, with an aFe Power Scorcher HD Electronic Power Module, Momentum HD air intake air cleaner, and 5-in. DPF-back exhaust system. The upgrades added 50 hp and nearly 100 lb.-ft. of torque, totaling 397 hp and 817 lb.-ft. of torque to the rear wheels.
Rogue Racing supplied the rear suspension system, front and rear bumpers, and custom bed rack. LGE*CTS Motorsports in San Dimas, California, installed the fenders and managed the custom matte silver/black/bronze paint scheme. The front suspension system was supplied by Icon Vehicle Dynamics, and the 3.0 External Bypass full adjustable shocks utilize Icon Coil Springs. A performance front sway bar by Hellwig Suspension Products added more control.
The wheels are custom Raceline bronze 935M Defenders with 2-in. Rough Country Wheel spacers, and are wrapped in Toyo Open Country M/T tires.
Baja Designs provided the lighting, featuring 10-in. LEDs, four wide/driving S8 10-in. lightbars and another two S2 Pro LED flush-mount amber spots. In addition, the Rogue Racing Enforcer front bumper has two S2 Pro LED driving lights and two XL-R Pro LED driving/combo ambers. A Warn Zeon 12s winch was mounted to the Rogue unit.
A Curt manufacturing Class 5 Commercial Duty hitch was installed to handle towing duties. The AMP Research Power Step XL retractable steps are illuminated when they are down to help improve footing when it’s dark.
A pair of BD Squadron Pros were mounted atop the Rogue Racing bed cage. An ARB Twin Compressor rests underneath the truck for when more air is needed.
Mounted near the A-pillar, an sPOD 8-Circuit SE System was tasked with operating all of the lights, and the stock stereo system was upgraded with a SYNC 3 system and a Kicker Audio–powered vehicle-specific sub enclosure.
