Raptor Takes Flight: Truckin Fast Wednesday Presented by Nitto Tire
Watch this Ford F-150 SVT Raptor show off its jumping ability in some crazy off-road situations!
This week’s “Truckin Fast Wednesday” videos come to us from the YouTube channel of Ryan Felish and they feature a previous generation F-150 SVT Raptor playing on a dirt road. This V8-powered performance pickup is moving at a pretty good clip as it storms down the rough path, but the key attraction of these videos is the air-time.
In stock form, the previous generation Ford F-150 SVT Raptor was an incredible machine, serving as the most off-road-capable production truck in the half-ton segment. However, having the most capable stock truck wasn’t good enough for this Raptor owner, so he has clearly modified his F-150 to be an even more formidable performer in the roughest conditions.
There is no mod list accompanying either of these videos, but it is obvious that this Raptor has a long-travel system setup, aftermarket body panels with larger wheel flares and a big set of off-road tires. It might have some power modifications as well, but these features focus on the advantages of that aftermarket suspension setup.
F-150 Takes Flight
In the first video (above), the F-150 Raptor pops over a couple of small jumps on a dirt road. While all Raptors have the ability to leave the ground, take notice of how smoothly this F-150 lands with the aftermarket suspension setup. This first clip also includes some stills of the high-flying action and a beauty shot of the truck parked in the woods.
The second video (below) is very short, but it has better quality video and the biggest jump. The video begins with a look at an empty stretch of desert, when suddenly the Raptor bursts into the air, flying past the camera and landing smoothly.
Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
