Harley-Davidson Ford F-150 SVT Lightning

It’s like thunder, this Lightning, and the way it roars is frightening. 

When best of Detroit fused with the notorious Milwaukee brand Harley-Davidson, they created special edition of F-series trucks that were exceptionally badass. We usually think of the F-150 Harley-Davidson, but let us not forget the very cool Harley-Davidson Ford F-150 SVT Lightning that turned heads and tore up the road. We found this rare and exceptional Lightning on Instagram and knew we had to show it off.

The proud owner of this 2003 F-150 Lightning is Jose Cruz. Cruz has very wisely dedicated his entire Instagram to showing off his very cool truck. The 2003 model marked Harley-Davidson’s 100-year anniversary, so they made their collaboration with Ford very special. The details on this truck from the badging to the powertrain were all done to perfection to ensure this was a collectors edition that people would want.

The aesthetic choices were a nice blend of sophisticated and cool. The black and gray exterior is a beautiful touch, and carries through to the interior. The seats are black with gray accents, and Harley-Davidson badging. The H-D and Ford badging looks razor sharp on this truck.

The remarkable engine is a supercharged 5.4L 2-valve engine, turning this Lightning into a capable and aggressive beast.

Cruz has taken great care to keep this truck running at maximum performance. He’s added some upgrades such as seat warmers, a killer audio system, torque converters, eBoost2, Centerline wheels, Moto Metal rims, M&H wide rear tires, and more.

Before he replaced the tires, however, he got in some fun smoking action.

Got new tires in the works so figured I’d smoke’em up!
