Braptor
Ford enthusiasts will have to wait until 2020 to purchase the much anticipated Ford Bronco once it is re-released. If you can’t wait that long for the new Ford Bronco, just do what this guy did and build your own based loosely off of a Ford Raptor.  Check out the #Braptor

Oceanside, CA (February, 2017)
– MagnaFlow is recognized as being a leader in the performance exhaust segment for several reasons, namely its commitment to designing exhaust systems that will actually make real-world power thanks to strict design practices and over 30 years of performance exhaust knowledge. It’s with this in mind that MagnaFlow would like to announce its brand-new stainless steel exhaust system for the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor.

Ford Raptor Truck Fail
We’ll never know what possesses a person to jump such a beautiful (and expensive) truck knowing that the outcome probably isn’t going to be good.  This Ford Raptor jump had almost no chance of turning out well.  I guess a big crowd and a shot at a few minutes of fame is enough for some people… check out the carnage below.

Called the VelociRaptor 6X6 Concept, the kit brings along plenty of upgrades and a steep price tag, starting at $295,000. For that price, this beast brings upgraded Fox suspension bits, 20-inch wheels, off-road tires, unique front and rear bumpers, a roll bar and LED lights. And of course, an extra locking axle, bringing along the 6X6 moniker.

Ford Raptor Drift feature
Did you know that roundabouts serve a couple of different purposes? Sure, initially they were designed to improve the flow of traffic but they’re also great for practicing your drifting skills.  This guy is apparently training to be the Ford Raptor Drifting world champion.

Check out this lime-green Ford Raptor showing off drifting skills in this roundabout.

Ford Raptor Pulling Feature
We often wish we could listen in on the conversation that took place just before some of the videos that we find online.  If we had to guess what lead up to this Ford Raptor vs. Chevy Silverado pulling contest, it probably went a little something like this…

A leaked document could have just revealed the specifications for the highly anticipated 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor.

Ford recently released details on its 2012 F-150 SVT Raptor. The Raptor will return with new updates that include a new Torsen front differential, which will increase grip significantly for the front end of the truck and allow it to pull itself over obstacles and up steep grades, even when the traction is split between the front tires.

Ford also explained in its press release on the 2012 Raptor last week that an internal helical gearset is used to help force torque from the wheel that is losing traction to the wheel with traction. The system is set with a torque bias ratio of 2.5:1 to help multiply torque from wheel to wheel and the preload is set to zero to help minimize steering feedback.

“This system is key for letting Raptor customers tackle new ground in their truck,” said Kerry Baldori, Ford SVT Global Performance Vehicle chief functional engineer. “Its extreme capability lends itself well to rock climbing situations.”

DALLAS, Sept. 29, 2011 – The 2012 F-150 SVT Raptor is set to deliver a new level of the no-compromise off-road performance the truck is famed for and, with a variety of new technologies and interior and exterior updates, it won’t disappoint.

“A major element of the SVT Raptor program is our work to continuously expand the capabilities it offers to customers. We want to cover all dimensions of off-roading – from desert running to rock climbing,” said Raj Sarkar, Ford F-150 Marketing manager. “We always aim to keep the product fresh and exciting, and all of our changes for 2012 reflect that.”

Additional capability for the 2012 F-150 SVT Raptor comes from a new Torsen front differential. The system increases grip significantly for the front end of the truck and allows it to pull itself over obstacles and up steep grades, even when the traction is split between the front tires.

Off-Road.com was invited out for testing of the new TSCO Ford Raptor Pre-runners built by Craig Stewart’s RaceWorks in Santee, CA.

This is not the same truck you might see on the street or a showroom floor. It’s a full-blown, hand-built mechanical masterpiece, the first Ford Raptor Luxury Pre-runner of its kind.
