MegaRexx, North Carolina Company Turns Ford’s F-250 Super Duty into a big and muscular Baja basherthere is a new version of the wild truck capable of carrying seven people.
It’s called MegaRaptor7, and it has a third row of seats with two seats in the area where the F-250’s bed usually sits. MegaRexx has also built a removable dome; it’s a monolithic design made from hand-formed aluminum with sporty tinted glass.
The modification turns the previous MegaRaptor pickup truck into an SUV.
MegaRaptor7 is based on the Ford F-250 Super Duty Lariat 4×4 crew cab, and as a result it comes with a lot of luxuries. This includes leather trim, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, and voice-activated navigation. The front bucket seats in the truck feature heating and cooling.
It also has the 6.7-liter turbodiesel V-8 offered in the F-250, making 475 horsepower and 1,050 lb-ft of torque. According to Ford, the engine will tow up to 20,000 pounds in a four-wheel-drive F-250 with a conventional hook.
To increase ground clearance, MegaRexx has added new springs, shock absorbers and suspension arms. The car has also been fitted with 46-inch off-road tires from Michelin, wrapped around 20-inch wheels from MRAP.
To accommodate the large tires, MegaRexx designed its own fenders that are bolted and linked to the truck and add 9 inches to the width—on each side.
The cost of MegaRaptor7 starts at around $189,000, and MegaRexx needs about eight weeks to complete the build. Customers can supply their own F-250, which must be a 2017 model or newer.
MegaRexx has another option for buyers looking for a seven-seat wild truck. The company last June launched a Super Duty-Bronco mashupalso with third row option.
