North Carolina-based MegaRexx has a problem: “Do you really like the aggressive appears to be like and off-road efficiency of the Ford Raptor, but have to have significant diesel power?” If the answer is certainly, the aftermarket specialist from Wilmington has just the proper XXL-sized truck for you. Dubbed MegaRaptor, the substantial truck commenced out in everyday living as an F-250 Tremendous Responsibility in the significant-stop Platinum trim in advance of obtaining lots of off-road updates.
The tuner will happily operate on your F-350 and F-450 as properly, but for its latest build, it made the decision to go with the F-250 from the Tremendous Responsibility lineup. It uses really a number of fiberglass sections at the front and rear to cram those substantial tires underneath the outsized fenders introducing either 12 or 18 inches to the vehicle’s width. MegaRexx also pushed the front axle forward by one.five inches so that the chunky tires could clear the firewall.
Now, about those tires. The MegaRaptor rides on gigantic 46-inch Michelin XZL (395/eighty five R20) rubber mounted on Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) alloy wheels rated at ten,000 lbs each and every, indicating the vehicle’s significant body weight is not a worry. The F-250 Tremendous Responsibility has also gained the required suspension lift and a two.five-inch boost complemented by Bilstein shocks.
The jacked-up arrangement will never trigger problems as much as getting into the cabin due to the fact MegaRexx has fitted electrically deployable running boards. The record of goodies proceeds with a developed-in air compressor and excess LED lights as you would count on from an off-road build. The bed is not modified, indicating it retains the large basically available by such a substantial truck.
The F-250 Tremendous Duty’s turbodiesel motor is also untouched, so the 6.7-liter Ability Stroke V8 proceeds to deliver 475 horsepower and a mountain-shifting one,050 pound-ft (one,424 Newton-meters) of torque. The inside has been carried about from the donor motor vehicle, but MegaRexx mentions it presents a lot of customization options so that no two trucks are alike.
You will have to make a $five,000 deposit to get in line for a MegaRaptor, and at the time the firm is ready to operate on the truck, you can expect to have to ship it to MegaRexx and set down a 50 per cent deposit. From that instant, it ought to just take two to three months until eventually the build is completed.
