Storm Chasers On What It's Like To Take A Pickup Truck To A Tornado

Ford Canada's latest commercial series profiles Ford owners who do cool jobs with their trucks, and the Tornado Hunter F-150 is easily the most badass so far. Their bright-orange SuperCrew called "flash" looks straight out of Jurassic Park.

The truck is completely covered in Line-X bedliner, giving it a strange textured appearance under the layer of orange paint. The "TORNADO HUNTER" text on the doors is cut out of what looks like stick-on armor, which gives it a neat relief effect.

A robust set of bumpers are connected to a roof rack/roof armor via tube steel shafts that form limb risers. In this context, that's more to protect wind-propelled objects flying out of nowhere than help the truck pick its way through a tight trail off-road. Off the back, there are camera-mounting modules and extra storage.
