Loaded and Brutish, Raptor X Gonna Give It to Ya

Waldoch Raptor X

Built by Waldoch, the Raptor X gains a bigger turbo, a wider stance, and LED light bumpers for extra aggression on- and off-road.

The Raptor is already a proven hardcore F-150, ready to tear it up on the strip and desert right from the factory. For most Raptor owners, whatever they put on their truck before taking delivery is all they need. But other owners might want more from their desert runner than what Ford offers.

For them, they can check out this Waldoch Raptor X on eBay, currently available for a Buy It Now price of around $84,000 in Superior, Wisconsin.

Built by Minnesora-based Waldoch Crafts, the Raptor X‘s secret sauce starts with a bigger turbo for the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 for more power to the rear pair of Waldoch’s 20-inch black wheels, wrapped in 35-inch all-terrain tires.

Inside, the dash and door bezels are trimmed in carbon fiber, the door sills have Waldoch aluminum plates, and stepping in is easy as the optional integrated power-deploy running boards popping out for you and your friends.

Outside, the Raptor X has custom graphics and badging, a two-inch levelling kit, body-color fender flares, a front bumper with LEDs, and an optional bed cover painted to match the color of the Raptor.

As the ad says, “The RaptorX takes a normal Ford F-150 Raptor to a whole new level. This is more than just adding a lift kit, larger tires, and a bigger personality. Waldoch’s RaptorX is about standing out in a crowd and taking on the rough stuff ahead.” Not that the Raptor needed any more help with those things, but it is pretty badass to have all the powerful options. Still, this is a pretty cool take on Ford’s high-performance desert bomber.

Since launching her professional writing career nearly a decade ago as a fashion blogger, Cameron Aubernon has written for a handful of online and print publications on a wide variety of subjects, including expat issues, fashion, music, and, of course, the automotive industry. The automotive expert was even the editor-in-chief of a popular online lifestyle publication, where she reviewed luxury cars and interviewed fellow automotive enthusiasts.

A graduate of The Evergreen State College Class of 2005 with a bachelor's in liberal arts, Aubernon took a left turn from fashion writing into the automotive realm when she asked a fellow writer via Facebook if she could write for their site. Following an internship, stints with a couple of hyper-local online publications, and a move to Seattle, she made her then-biggest impact with The Truth About Cars, writing full-time for the publication from 2013 to 2015.

Currently, the highly-regarded automotive journalist is a frequent contributor to the high-traffic Internet Brands Auto Group websites Rennlist, Club Lexus, LS1Tech and Mustang Forums, among others.

Aubernon’s expert knowledge of all things Ford trucks has also made her a mainstay as one of the most prolific writers on Ford Truck Enthusiasts and F-150 Online.
