Dealer Releases Their Own Ford Lightning, Available For Sale.

Vehicles sometimes exist that make their way to the fan favorite but end up falling by the wayside. For one reason or another, a lot of these vehicles just can’t find a way to continue on with production. Whether it’s because they fall into a niche that’s not big enough to generate enough willing customers or perhaps end up just being too expensive for what’s offered, these creations find a way to eventually fade to black. A perfect example of this would be the performance street truck that Ford used to produce known as the SVT Lightning. The truck was quite unique for its time, offering up a supercharged 380 hp v8 with a specially stylized body of a Ford F-150 pickup truck.

Officially, 2004 was the last that we would see of the Lightning. However, that hasn’t stopped folks from taking inspiration from the truck. Since the last generation of Lightning has touched the street, we’ve seen plenty of other trucks that have been designed, by the aftermarket, to emulate what a newer version of the Lighning would look like. This time, we get to see how one dealership is putting together a special package that they hope to draw consumers into on the heels of what they consider to be their very own version of the Lightning. They call it the “LMST Lightning Package.”

Ford truck new package lightning

The single cab LMST package will include vehicle lowering, MBRP Stainless Side Exit Exhaust, and Dub Baller 22″ Wheels in addition to a couple of visual body modifications that include a hood and roof scoop. Inside, we find custom LMST leather seats (Black Leather with Gray Suede Inserts), complete with embroidery that compliments the LMST graphics outside of the truck. For those who want more than just looks, a 650 Horsepower Roush Supercharger upgrade with a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty is also available. Otherwise, the truck is accompanied by a 5 year/60,000 mile warranty.

Sure, this isn’t exactly an official Ford product so it might fall a touch short of a factory Lightning. However, we have to admire the effort of Long McArthur Ford in Salina, KS as they’re taking a shot at capturing a little bit of energy from the fan favorite.
