Altering the Raptor's SVT-developed and Fox-tuned suspension is one of those decisions many Raptor owners have a hard time deciding on. There are quality upgrades out there—as this Raptor-specific feature section has shown—however, most of the modifications include coilover, upper control arm, and rear shock upgrades. For RBP, status quo wasn't acceptable, and neither was a simple shock upgrade. So RBP partnered with Fabtech Motorsports to develop a 4-inch lift kit for the Raptor and, with some creative sheetmetal work on the extra-wide front fenders and rear bedsides, the 2011 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Super Crew is able to clear 40-inch Toyo M/T tires—a feat you won't see too often at your local Raptor run.
Extra power was required to spin the big mud tires and 20-inch RBP wheels, so the 6.2L was given a shot in the arm by way of an Edelbrock E-Force supercharger and RBP exhaust with custom RBP tip. A quick trip over to Industrial Motoring in Anaheim, California, saw the Raptor receive a giant roof rack, custom sheetmetal bumper with LED lights, RBP grille, and sheetmetal dual-scoop hood. Capping off the crazy modifications, the entire truck was painted matte black, and a large RBP logo was applied on the side to provide notice of who owns this wild Raptor.
Rolling big is an understatement for this monstrous F-150 with 40-inch tires, insane sheetmetal work, and a roof rack that houses a fullsize spare and LED lightbars.
Helping to turn the massive M/T tires, an Edelbrock E-Force supercharger pumps cool air into the engine, boosting power to the 600 range.
