In 2000, Ford launched the Excursion, a large SUV that shares its foundation with the Super Duty pickup truck. The massive beast lasted just one generation, disappearing from the US Blue Oval lineup after the 2005 model year. MegaRexx decided to fill the remaining void in the automaker’s portfolio, launching the MegaRaptor 7, a modified Super Duty pickup with three rows of seats and an extended cab with a roof. removable fiberglass.
The truck started as the F-250 Super Duty Crew Cab Lariat 4×4 and has undergone extensive modifications. The truck-turned-SUV features 4.0-inch Icon progressive coil springs at the front and 5.0-inch multi-leaf springs at the rear. Revised suspension helps the truck accommodate 20-inch MRAP wheels wrapped in 46-inch Michelin XZL rubber.
The MegaRexx really beefed up the suspension, adding an adjustable rear impact stop, King reservoir shocks, Icon dual steering stabilizers, and longer, stronger proprietary radius arms. The truck also sports a removable fiberglass roof over the third row of seats, covering the tailgate with the rest of the cabin.
Powering the modified truck is Ford’s 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbodiesel. The engine produces a stock 475 horsepower (354 kilowatts) and 1,050 pound-feet (1,423 Newton-meters) of torque, suggesting no upgrades have been made to the powertrain. The truck has Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission.
MegaRexx spruced up the truck’s exterior along with improved suspension, which further strengthens its appearance. The Smasher’s front bumper with 40-inch LED light bar looks tough, paired with the proprietary rear bumper and laser-etched rear door panels with MegaRaptor branding. The truck also sported Anzo switchback headlights, black powder-coated side rails, two 2.0-inch square reverse lights, and Lithium Gray Metallic exterior paint.
Inside, Ford has a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen surround sound system, Sync 3 with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, dual-zone climate control, and heated and ventilated front seats. The third-row seats at the rear fold down with effort and are from Ford Expedition, and have enough space even for adults, unlike the third-row seats in many of today’s SUVs.
