Background of F150, F250, F350, Trucks

The most popular version of the F-Series is the Ford F-150, produced in thirteen different generations. It has been the best-selling vehicle in the United States since 1981 and the best-selling pickup since 1977. 

These trucks are part of the Ford F-Series line of trucks.  The Ford F-Series is a series of light-duty trucks and medium-duty trucks (Class 2-7) that have been marketed and manufactured by Ford Motor Company since 1948. While most variants of the F-Series trucks are full-size pickup trucks, the F-Series also includes chassis cab trucks and commercial vehicles. There were three variations, the F-1 (1/2 ton truck), F-2 (3/4 ton truck), and F-3 (1 ton heavy duty truck). 

In 1975, the F-150 was introduced in between the F-100 and the F-250 in order to avoid certain emission control restrictions. For 1978, square headlights replaced the previous models' round ones on higher trim package models, such as Lariat and Ranger, and in 1979 became standard equipment. These headlights could have the bulbs replaced, without needing to replace the entire headlight as was the case in previous models.  Also, for 1978, the Ford Bronco was redesigned into a variant of the F-series pickup. 1979 was the last year that the 460-big block engine was available in a half ton truck. 

For the 1953 model year, an all-new version of the F-Series made its debut. Increased dimensions, improved engines, and an updated chassis were features of the second generation.

Additionally, a change to the F-Series naming scheme would remain in place to the present day. The half-ton F-1 became the F-100 (partially influenced by the North American F-100 Super Sabre); the F-2 and F-3 were combined into the F-250 while the F-4 became the F-350. Conventional F-Series trucks were F-500 to F-900; COE chassis were C-Series trucks.

In 1997, the company took a bold step and redesigned the chiseled box look that the truck had carried and replaced it with a jellybean-like style. A plethora of configurations continued to exist, with Regular cab, SuperCab (extended), and SuperCrew (a crew cab was introduced in 2001).

The aftermarket helps keep vehicles on the road by providing consumers the choice of where they want their vehicles serviced, maintained, or customized.

With the DIY market-creating innovation and then productizing the innovation through new avenues we are seeing more diversity in the market than ever before.   Beast Carbon was founded on the thought that we can make higher quality Windows Visors, and Rain Guards utilizing carbon fiber and through innovation lower the cost to compete with the lower quality plastic injection mold products that exist on the market currently.

The United States overall automotive aftermarket is estimated to be worth $318.2 billion (2013), contributing more than 2.3% to GDP. The aftermarket employs 4.2 million people who work at manufacturers, distributors, retailers and repair shops.

What is a Window Visor and Rain Guard

A window deflector is mounted above the doors of some automobiles, to protect the inside of the car from rain or other precipitation in case of slightly opened windows. Additionally, it may help to prevent precipitation entering the interior in case of an opened door, e.g. dropping from the roof or directly from the air. Deflectors are also fitted to sunroofs to deviate the wind.

It is also known as a "monsoon shield" or a "rain visor" (in countries without monsoon). The primary purpose of window deflectors is to prevent dust, snow, rain, other precipitation or excessive wind from entering the cabin. Also, window deflectors direct air flows over the vehicle, and thus, reduce the wind noise when driving on moderate speeds. Window deflectors can be installed directly in the window channel or attached to the vehicle's body in the sunroof or side window area using 3M automotive-grade adhesive tape. Window deflectors are a common accessory in the automotive aftermarket. Being vehicle-specific, they are normally designed to fit the individual car, truck or SUV models.

 

Types of Window Visors

Currently, 2 types of materials are in use to produce Window Visors and Rain Guards.

The first material is a plastic injection mold. Overview of plastics for Window Visors and Rain Guards. Plastics - acrylic and polycarbonate sheet materials plastics.  Acrylic and polycarbonate sheet materials are widely used for Window Visors and Rain Guards because they come in a wide variety of colors, are easy to form into complex shapes including curvature and finishing.  Acrylic and polycarbonate materials are easy to paint, print, and bond with adhesives and solvent cement.
