The 2009 Freedom Truck was unveiled in the Ford booth at the SEMA show in Las Vegas Nevada. Malibu Customz teamed up with artist Mickey Harris to modify a 2009 Ford F-150 Supercrew Lariat in a tribute to all the people who serve or have served in the United States Armed Services.

A series of murals painted over the dark blue Ford F-150 features Cobra and Stallion helicopters, a Bradley Fighting Machine, two F-18 Hornets, a destroyer and Apache helicopter. There are also two M1-A1 Abrams tanks, an F-22 Raptor, C-17 Globemaster and a Predator.

Harris is known internationally for his free-hand air brush style also put the faces of the men and women in the Army, Navy, Air Force Marines and Coast Guard. “The faces come from my imagination,” said Harris. “There isn’t enough we can do to honor our soldiers. They are our most precious commodity.”

Harris, the son of a Vietnam Veteran, decided on the patriotic custom finish because of his love for the military. “It’s all about respect,” he said.

The one of a kind custom creation also features a futuristic holographic display by Phantasmic Entertainment Inc., which projects images behind the Ford. A host of vendors contributed to the project, including K&N.
