F250R, the Tuscon Arizona company that specializes in conversions has just come out with a 2017 Ford F-250 MegaRaptor, a vehicle that can best be described as Ford Super Duty on steroids. Built upon the regular F-250, the MegaRaptor delivers more power, more ground clearance, and a lot more bragging rights than its F-250 counterpart. So, take a look below.
To produce a MegaRaptor, F250R strips their trucks of any unnecessary parts leaving just a rolling cab on which they than start to build on. From the design standpoint the Ford F-250 MegaRaptor is a little less polished than your average F-250, but in turn far more powerful. New MegaRaptor specific features include large fiberglass fenders that bulge out over the massive wheels. F250R bumps tire size from the SuperRaptor’s 40-inch tires to humongous 46-inch tires, and both of them leave the F-250’s 35 inch set in the dust. The MegaRaptor comes with a set of multi-piece MRAP wheels, and it can also be offered with a more aggressive Michelin XZL rubber. Furthermore, there is a new one-piece clamshell hood that which integrates the F-150’s headlights and a new grille inspired by the Ford Raptor. The only thing missing from the MegaRaptor are the bumpers that completely left because of their tendency to decrease approach angles.

Engine and Powertrain
The 2017 Ford F-250 MegaRaptor will be powered by a 6.7-liter Powerstroke diesel V8 engine that will be able to deliver up to 440 horsepower and 925 lb-ft of torque. But, the folks over at F250R din’t stop there. If you decide to add the optional exhaust package, the needle moves way up to 580 horsepower and 1,175 lb-ft of torque. Below, the Ford F-250 MegaRaptor, as well as its SuperRaptor counterpart are fitted with an Icon 4.5-inch lift in the front as well as the back. F250R decided to go with the Bilstein 5100 shocks since the Icon’s are too stiff.
