Strategic mods make this truck look like it could be a sort of racing series’ pre-runner for an off-road race.

Every now and then we come across interesting Ford truck videos on YouTube. Sometimes they reveal much in the description and other times they don’t reveal a thing. This video of a modified 2017 Raptor falls into the latter category.

However, right off the bat, we can tell that its body has been modified. It seems that most of the trim, like the fender flares, intakes, and other plastics, has been painted white to match the F-150’s body. Furthermore, the owner didn’t bother with shaving the original bumpers and instead simply replaced them with hardcore, Baja-style flaps and fenders front and back.

Up front, several aftermarket lights were added, including a large light bar on the bumper and two light cubes near the side mirrors. We didn’t notice anything specific when it comes to lighting in the back but the owner did install a massive spare tire carrier in the bed. In fact, these strategic mods make this truck look like it could be a sort of racing series’ pre-runner for an off-road race.

Once the dyno run comes to an end, the screen reveals 398.6 horsepower at the rear wheels and 477.7 lb-ft of torque. That’s pretty darn good considering the energy loss related to the massive suspension and wheels. As you know, the 2017 Raptor produces 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.
