If the rationale of ducking into the truck's cab for a bit of relief from the terrifying tempest outside seems logical, think again. A Clarion DVD/navi head unit, two Clarion amplifiers- one for the mid and high range and one for the bass-and two Clarion 10-inch subwoofers, create some thunder inside the confines of the seemingly safe interior. Component speakers have been installed into the front and rear door panels, via custom-made plates and a custom sub enclosure, which has been nicely tucked away behind the rear seats. With a setup like this, it is fair to assume that any victims left behind the Power Storm's path must have heard the eminent danger approaching.
Where can you get an up-close and personal glimpse of Fabtech's larger than life thunderous F-350 Power Storm, you ask? Unfortunately, tuning into your local newscast won't shed any light on the tracking of this specific storm. Instead, following the Fabtech semi is the best bet. The Power Storm travels with the company's representatives, as they float around the country while stopping at visit various shows and races. The crowds that stop and gather around the Ford are deep, so if you plan on standing directly under its shadow, prepare to either be patient or ready to claw your way to the front lines. Brent Riley and Fabtech have succeeded in blending the style of a pro-street race car and an off-road hauler for a totally fresh innovation that has truck enthusiasts frenzied. From SEMA to the pages of Truckin', the Power Storm hasn't downsized or lost any ferocity on its way to reaching full catastrophic potential.
There was also a lot of attention paid to the Power Storm's energizing exterior, as well. The obvious attention grabber is the truck's House of Kolor paint scheme and graphics that Haynie Design and Lathrop Designs exquisitely covered the F-350 with. The lightning bolts seem to jump right off the truck's surface and represent the true exhilaration that has surrounded the Power Storm since its electrifying debut. Precision Grilles has hooked up the front of the Ford with a bit of billet-a must for any big or small custom build. On the complete opposite end of the truck, a Sir Michael's roll pan provides a clean, uncluttered appearance-bumpers are so overrated anyway. Competition Engineering was brought into the project to construct specialty wheeltubs to properly accommodate the suspension and wheel/tire combo. The exact dimensions of the tubs measure 40x20x23.25inches; more than enough room to house all the Fabtech, American Force, and Toyo Tire goodies. Fabtech custom 'fabbed a pair of stainless steel exhaust stacks that exit through the bed and dump rearward. Two one-off billet air extractors also grab attention and gulps of fresh, cool flowing air. Riley didn't go over the top when designing the cosmetic modifications for the Power Storm, because the truck's presence certainly speaks for itself. No need to add any additional force onto a category 5 hurricane, now is there?
