A few more pics of the latest SporTruck to roll out of the shop. She was born a little thirsty!

I was seriously wanting to buy a new performance F150 being a current owner of a 2004 Lightning and seems Ford only cares about building Raptors so I was waiting for the Shelby F150 Super Snake as I knew the truck was coming long before they unveiled it but as soon as I found out that the entire truck was being built by Tuscany I no longer wanted one and $100k+ for a Shelby Super Snake F150 where only the badges are the only thing Shelby umm I'll pass.

Then I hear Saleen is gonna bring back their Sport Truck great news then I see it and not so excited anymore. My issue is the front grille/valance looks like it was rushed to get finished as the design and looks doesn't say **** this is bad ***. Its an F150 not a Mustang so why try to copy the looks. I'd like to see the valance/bumper cover have more function instead of large plastic mesh that serves no purpose other than preventing sucking in road kill. A splitter would be nice, custom LED lightning as there are a few companies who make custom grilles with LED lighting. I would have done a grille like the Raptors that instead of FORD its SALEEN.

I know the performance is there just needs a new body kit.

And PLEASE get rid of the 5 star wheel design it went out in the early 2000's

Thanks. It's an awesome truck. I love that nobody knows what it is, always best to keep people wondering.

Not too happy that I have to get supercharger installed after the sale, dealer says they can't sell vehicles with an sc per state law. I have to take it into Saleen, hopefully I can get them to answer their phone one day!

Does this show the picture? Sorry, i'm new here.

With Shelby not being an independent company now really kinda loses the luster to me. Now itís just another regular Ford like the Raptor. Saleen and Roush are the only real suppliers/builders now. If the Raptor was more limited Iíd probably bought one in Ď17 or Ď18. Thankfully I didnít because I always wanted another Saleen and missed the few s331 crews in a color Iíd take, and I refused to buy black-had a black Saleen fox in early-mid Ď90ís. I actually looked at a black blk level with everything Ford and/or Saleen has for a stupid low price, and it looked awesome, just couldnít do it. My white SC doesnít have all the options I really wanted but it spoke to me! LoL

Sorry but the frontend doesn't scream Performance or **** look at me! There is a whole lotta wasted Grille space down below that could be used my lower driving lights and brake cooling ducts. The NEW Shelby F150 2-door says Holy S*** this is awesome so if I was inside the Saleen Design Team I would revamp the trucks

But I donít think the Shelbys look good, if I wanted a Shelby mustang Iíd buy one not a truck that looks like a mustang. I think the Sportruck looks good the way they are I will agree the lower front valance is big but I like it. In fact I wouldnít have bought one if it didnít have the full ďaeroĒ package. And Iím sure the people who have bought the XR or the 2wd without the package like it that way.

Saleen is running on a skeleton crew right now so may take some time for them to get going again.
Iíd be interested in hearing more about the dealer saying they canít sell vehicles with superchargers, Iíve never heard that before, but Iím not on the west coast.
And no we canít see your pics.

I went in to Saleen on Monday. The purchaser at Saleen told me that it's normal for Washington and California to require sc install after purchase. That's about all I know about missing superchargers!

The dealer gave me a bill of goods owed to me, I wasn't about to leave without something in hand.


Sorry for the pic, still haven't figured out how to attach....how about now?
