If you ever thought you needed more than what the F-150 offers, you are in luck because Ford has just come out with a brand-new 2017 Ford F-250 MegaRaptor coincidentally packs in more power, more ground clearance, and most importantly, more bragging rights. The master mind behind the new MegaRaptor is Tuscon Arizona company called F250R. They can transform your plain old F-250 into gas-guzzling monster that is the MegaRaptor.
F250R begins with the regular 6.7-liter Powerstroke diesel powered F-250 and adds quite a few things. Firstly, new fender flares are installed so that the MegaRaptor can hold the gigantic 46-inch Michelin XZLs (395/85R20) tires that are firmly wrapped around the aluminum wheels that are actually derived from the MRAP, a anti-land mine vehicle used by the military. Moreover, the designers over at F250R decided to swap the standard 8-lug hubs for a 10-lug that fits in better to the military pattern.
From the font, the 2017 Ford F-250 MegaRaptor gets a new front fascia design that bares a strong resemblance to the current Raptor. But, what makes the Mega Raptor stand out is its new engine exposing system that makes the hood open forward clamshell-style. Furthermore, the truck gets a new set of Bilstein 5100 shocks, some front matched coilovers and multipack rear leaf springs. There will also be a 4-inch lift included.

For the right price, F250R will include a myriad of optional features and specs into your MegaRaptor. You can take your pick between a set of high quality leather seats, 4:88 rear gears, a cold air intake, as well as various headlight, taillight and off-road lighting options. There is are also front and rear steel bumpers with lights, a rear bed spare tire carrier, Amp Research electric steps, as well as rock rings for the wheels that will be made available. But the real star of the show is perhaps the new exhaust system, which the company claims adds 140 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque to the output, but the 50-state compliant is reportedly included.
