SEMA 2014: Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s Drift Truck Is The “Ultimate Fun Haver”


Vaughn Gittin Jr. is a lot of things.  He is a Formula Drift Champion, a lover of seafood, a friend to Ken Block, a Ford Mustang advocate, but above all he’s just a dude who knows how to have a good time.  That was the exact theme he wanted to go for when Ford handed him a 2015 F-150 Super Crew truck.  After Ford gave him the truck they basically told him to make it his own.  You can certainly say that is exactly what he did.  The first thing that is easy to notice is that he took styling cues from his Formula Drift Nitto Tire mustang by re-creating the color scheme and adding the custom fender flares from auto explosion.

He also had a set of custom RTR wheels made for the truck and anodized them in neon green which matches his competition car.  The green continues in custom neon lights embedded into the headlight enclosure and grill.  Next Vaughn added a big ol’ hydraulic e-brake because at some point before SEMA is over he will drift this massive truck and its going to look pretty damn awesome doing it!  In the meantime check out some pictures of the drift truck by clicking any of the thumbnails.
