‘Bulletproof’ F-150 Is a Show Truck You Can Replicate at Home
Real Truck’s latest F-150 build shows how far you can go with nothing but bolt on parts!
In the olden days of automotive customization, wanting something completely different meant building parts completely from scratch. Today, the aftermarket industry provides everything you need to take your F-150 build to the next level. No welding helmet or English wheel required. Want further proof? Feast your eyes on RealTruck.com’s F-150 build, a 2015 XLT dubbed “Bulletproof.”
If the truck looks like something you’d see on the SEMA show floor, that’s because it could easily fit in with those world-class rides. Interestingly enough, everything you see here can be purchased from their website. Heck, they’re even nice enough to provide links to all the parts in this YouTube video’s description.
So what does it take, exactly, to turn a “Plain-Jane” F-150 into a show-worthy ride? For starters, a stack of cash and an internet connection. Next, a host of Bulletproof-branded parts, including the 12″ lift kit, shocks, traction bar, leaf springs and CV. Now you’ve got room for the killer 24×14 Fuel Forged FF02 wheels, and Trail Grappler 38×13.50R24 tires.
Next, turn your attention to the “custom” body pieces. They include Honey Badger bumpers and nerf bars, Anzo headlights, and Rigid LED lighting. Performance wise, “Bulletproof” sports an AFE intake, Edge Tuner CTS2 performance chip, and Borla Atak exhaust. Last but not least, a set of Katzkin seat covers add a touch of custom to the interior.
Throw some paint on your bumpers, slap it all together, and you’ve got a real show stopper. RealTruck’s hot build is a shining example of how great we have it these days, no matter how fondly we remember the “good old days” of hot rodding!
