2014 Ford E350 Super Duty XLT (Sema Build)

Not mine, but a good deal for someone with the budget.

This was posted for a much higher price last year. Seems like its listed for a more palatable price for the masses. Super custom stuff done by MG Metalworks on this van.

Doesn't seem like a bad price at all for a 2014, low mileage V-10.


Personally, I'd have to tone-down the exterior, but that's just me.

To each there own but IMO this would look much better if all the silver Aluminess parts were black....or wrap the vehicle in dark grey to better match the silver eqpt.

Love much of this van but suspect that the passenger seat does not swivel 180 degrees...that would be a negative. Looks like most of the rear windows do not ventilate...could get hot when parked at least when the top is not up. No water or solar but could be added.

drive side window vents, passenger barn door vents, passenger seat swivels...



The original owner planned to use this more as a mobile office rather than a camper. Water and solar weren't in the build plan.

This van is a deal. I bet lots of folks will pass over it to buy a branded SMB 6.0 diesel because it says 'diesel' and 'SMB' on it, and that's a shame.

Amazing build.

A 2016 video of the build.



This is a tempting build, that's for sure. Somebody please buy it, garage it for two years without driving it, and then sell it to me.
