If you love the look of the Ford F-150 Raptor but wished it was bigger, taller and generally more, check out the Ford F-250 MegaRaptor. It takes the Raptor and raises it to another level. If you thought Ford trucks had reached their zenith, think again!

 
The Ford F-250 MegaRaptor is a custom truck from F250R.com. Based in Tuscon, Arizona, the tuner has been working on F-250 trucks for a while now. The MegaRaptor is their crowning glory.
 
Ford F-250 MegaRaptor
Taking an F-250 donor truck, the company strips it out, adds a lift kit, widebody kit and new wheels and tires. The body kit removes the standard fenders and replaces them with much wider ones. They and the lift kit provides the space needed for the specialist MRAP aluminium wheels and 46 inch Michelin XZL tires. MRAP are military grade wheels so will likely drive forever.
 
The lift kit includes Bilstein 5100 Shocks and multipack rear leaf springs and the hardware necessary to run them high.
 
The body kit has been made to look like the Raptor writ large. The custom front end includes a clamshell opener for the hood, meaning the entire front end tips forward to expose the engine.
 
Talking of engines, there are two options for the Ford F-250 MegaRaptor, the standard 6.2-litre V8 or the 6.7-litre PowerStroke diesel V8. F250R recommend the diesel V8 that generates a cool 440 hp and 925 lb-ft of torque. They will even provide a custom exhaust that boosts output by 140 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque. Quite how an exhaust can boost output by that much I do not know!
 
Here’s a video of the F-250 MegaRaptor in action.

 
F250R says the conversion costs from $28,000 US plus a donor truck. The company offers a range of options aside from that magical exhaust and each truck is custom built to your exact specifications. That means the only real limit is your imagination and your wallet.
 
The Ford F-250 is an excellent work truck but can obviously be transformed into something special.
