As a bone-stock machine, the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is an impressive piece of engineering, but that doesn't mean that the platform can't be improved upon. The crew from Stewart's Race Works has turned its fabricating skills toward creating a luxury prerunner version of he go-anywhere pickup, and the result is nothing short of astounding. With a massive 90-inch track width and suitably epic amounts of wheel travel, this Raptor is filled with custom, one-off parts. The front suspension boasts 26-inches of travel while the rear flexes out at around 31 inches thanks in part to billet aluminum A-arms up front and a set of Fox Racing 4.0 external bypass shocks and three-inch coil springs.

A 600-horsepower Patton racing engine resides under the custom hood and is bolted to a built 4L80 automatic transmission. Though two-wheel drive, the truck features a four-link suspension in the rear for the most travel possible.

Inside, the cabin is fitted with GPS, and MP3/iPod capable audio system, six-way power adjustable seats and more electronic goodies. We want one.

      I suppose proofreading is a thing of the past.

      Just looked at their site. They're owned by Craig Stewart, the son of Ivan "Iron Man" Stewart. Looks like they know their stuff.

      Any frame improvements?

        Yea, a full safety cage.

        Not sure why you got modded down. They have been bending frames as of late....... But it's of course spun in such a way to blame the people trying to actually off-road their off road vehicles.

          He was voted down because it's not a problem for Ford. It's the owners' fault that the frames bent. They took their trucks to their limit, and the trucks broke. You take ANY car to its limit, it'll break, even your precious "400hp Evo".

          if you're not breaking parts, you're not wheelin hard enough. Ricers trip over choosing the best fuel pressure regulator. An off-roader will get hung up on a rock, go home throw on some sliders, pick up thicker skid plates, and then put on a cool diff cover for good measure. Carry a Hi-Jack just cause.

        They're not weak points, retard. The truck is being taken past its limits and it's breaking Take any car past its limits, it'll break.

          Wow. You called him a retard and you clearly have no idea what you are arguing. CLEARLY this is designed to go beyond the stock design in terms of performance, but if even the stock design can easily reach speeds and heights that lead to frame damage, then they need to be sure that their modified design includes a beefed-up frame as well. Though perhaps their better suspension will be able to cope with the bumps better and allow enough cushion that this won't be necessary. Either way, don't call him a retard for making a perfectly valid point.

          actually Stang, Elmos is fully justified in his retort to an underhanded remark pertaining to what a bunch of idiots did to their stock Raptors and then cried wolf to Ford.....

        I thought they already fixed the frame problem?

          there is no problem...the trucks that had issues were taken beyond what was deemed excessive abuse. And the morons were caught on video...........humorous actually...

          And a lot of the trucks had modified suspension as well.

      All it needs is luxury and a front bumper.......

        @Tarantula
        Front bumpers on prerunners tend to do pesky things like slam into tall bumps before your suspension has a chance to absorb them and carry the truck over the top.

        It's a pre-runner, it's not supposed to have a front bumper...

      I like it. But I prefer the stock Raptor. It has amazing combination of everyday usability and offroad capabilities. If I wanted harder offroader I would've go for Bowler.

        How can you possibly say which is better if you havn't driven the Raceworks Raptor? Have you even driven a Bowler? That's what the bottom line is, how it works off-road. Mtn Fire Guy is correct, this is built from the ground up - nothing but the cab is stock. It is a Trophy Truck with the conveniences of a street vehicle. Even though it's street legal, it's not built or bought to be a daily driver. It's for hard-core racers to prerun the race course. I guarantee you, the ride quality doesn't get any better than this regardless of less or even more money.
