Hardcore off-roaders are generally spartan and ready to get filthy, but Rob Lindsay of RJ Fabrication begs to vary with his most up-to-date creation. What started out as a third-generation Ford Ranger in SuperCab configuration has been turned into this: a Ford Ranger Luxury Pre-Runner, with the California-centered tuner entirely heading berserk in turning a truck into a snazzy off-roading menace.

AutotopiaLA highlighted the kickass truck in its YouTube channel to give you a swift tour and bonkers journey all over – one thing you can check out on major of this web page.

As you can see in the video clip and image gallery higher than, RJ Fab has entirely adjusted the appears to be like of the the moment humble compact truck. The front fascia resembles that of a Ford Raptor, whilst the mechanical bits beneath and on the bed stick out like a sore thumb.

The highlights of the aftermarket updates are the massive Summer Brother axles, alongside with the Fox shock absorbers with bypassers and coilovers. The latter will allow twenty inches of journey in the front and 28 inches at the again, virtually making it possible for the truck to conquer just about anything. Inside of, you will find a combine of luxury and utility, generally furnished by the upholstery designed by Rob himself.

In accordance to Rob, it took him 4 and a 50 percent several years to develop the truck, which he acquired from his brother-in-legislation. Again then, he experienced a Mark IV Chevy Iron Significant Block motor ready for a transplant. Rob, of course, complied and shoehorned the 680-horsepower mill into the truck, and the relaxation is history. Just after $350,000, of course.

The video clip higher than demonstrates Rob driving all over nonchalantly with the show’s host screaming (and cursing) in excitement. If you will find 1 fantastic case in point of how your off-roaders should really be driven, this is possibly it.
