Ford F-150 From Mil-Spec Looks Like A Raptor Killer
Usually when we see Mil-Spec products these are modified examples of the Hummer H1, but the company is now expanding its reach to create a Ford F-150 that fixes the flaws the company has seen with the Raptor. . Edward Xu stops by Mil-Spec’s workshop to see these awesome trucks.
Mil-Spec starts off with a 2020 F-150 with the 5.0-liter V8. Although not mentioned in this video, an earlier report indicates that the modifications to the Coyote plant are pushing 500 horsepower (373 kilowatts). The modifications include a new exhaust which produces an impressive sound.
This clip also reveals that the company is building its first supercharged F-150 with the V8. The forced induction pushes the power to about 700 hp (522 kW).
Mil-Spec’s mods go far beyond just adding potency. The company is also revising the suspension to add improved A-arms and 3-inch-diameter Fox bypass shocks. The idea behind this setup is that the truck would be able to handle off-road jumps.
Massive fender flares make this pickup seven inches wider than a factory Raptor. They also make room for 37-inch tires. The body gets a new front bumper with a small brush guard, and Mil-Spec’s large metallic emblem is in the center of the grille.
Customers work with Mil-Spec to personalize the interior. The company is a big fan of the use of billet aluminum, especially for the various switches in the cabin. It looks fantastic.
Xu takes a brief ride in the Mil-Spec F-150 and comes out impressed. The truck sounds good, looks mean, and appears to have decent handling manners. Xu wonders if he should have bought one rather than his $ 70,000 Ram 1500 Laramie.
