SEMA 2010: Ford F-Series Concept Indulge Your Inner Bro


The "bro truck" is a distinctly local phenomenon, common in the Southwestern United States, where a stereotypical bro drives a souped-up pickup, usually with an enormous and inappropriate lift kit. Ever concious of this important demographic, Ford made sure to bring some outrageous F-Series concepts to SEMA, in the hopes of capturing the all-important flat-bill baseball cap crowd.

This year, Ford is also highlighting their 6-cylinder Ecoboost powertrain option with two concept trucks, the Godfather Customs F-150 and an F-150 put together by an imaginatively named outlet called "The Custom Shop". While they don't quite fit the "bro truck" model, they do look like vehicles that those with discerning taste would avoidůmaking them perfect for SEMA!

Not just in the southwest. Brodozers are common on college campuses across the US. Why even here in the quaint little college town of Tuscaloosa, we have a proverbial inundation of said rolling turds.

SERIOUSLY? You really just put that up on this site? take it down, or edit it, because it is so far out of place, especially since you are pushing an ignorant stereo type on about half of the members on this forum.

You can't honestly say that more than a handful of members have trucks lifted to the point of looking fantastic, but being impractical (though they do adapt to it).

eh, I see what they mean about the douche with sideways flat-billed hat. I am seeing a lot more of those lately with modded trucks. Its kind of embarassing because they always want to talk to me and I really dont wanna converse with a wigger... about anything, ever.

Im not saying they are practical, just that for the most part, none of us are "bros." Its pretty much a slap in the face. Bro is that kid who knows nothing about his truck, has it because it looks cool, and is pretty much an idiot in all aspects. some "bro" once told me his 01 7.3L was pushing 800hp...with exhaust and a hot tune...get my point?
