ARIES Automotive has announce a partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation in another build project. This build was a collaboration with Starwood Motors and several other companies within the automotive aftermarket to turn one man’s Ford F-150 into a dream truck.
The build started with a young man, Jordan Shrum, who merely wished for a new paint job on his 2001 Ford F-150 SuperCrew 4x4. The wish was granted by the North Texas Make-A-Wish Foundation, and after several discussions and an inspection of the vehicle, it was decided that the young man and the truck deserved much more.
Make-A-Wish reached out to several large aftermarket manufacturers to deliver far beyond a new paint job. With contributions and collaborative efforts from ARIES Automotive, Center Line Alloy Wheels, Fabtech Suspensions, Nitto Tire USA and others, the truck was given a new exterior finish, suspension components, leather interior, wheels, tires and several accessories.
ARIES Automotive was proud to donate one of its 3-inch bull bars with a polished 304 stainless steel construction, and a set of 3-inch round side bars, featuring the same highly rust-resistant stainless steel construction and custom, non-skid step pads.
The newly customized Ford F-150 was revealed and delivered by Starwood Motors on Saturday, Jan. 28.
