This Ford F-250 MegaRaptor Crew Cab Lariat from Megarexx Trucks is mega crazy
Why are pickups so popular? We have three reasons why they are known. First, you can’t get enough of their mountainous build or their impressive pulling and off-road capabilities. Secondly, they are equipped with turbocharged engines that guarantee tremendous power. Finally, several automakers have released some amazing models that make truck shopping a hassle.
The Ford F-Series is one of the most incredible pick-up models available today. Megarexx Trucks, a tuning company, has been working on some ford truck recently. With every upgrade comes a bigger, meaner, and stronger truck.
Having a big engine isn’t much of a blessing, especially when diesel prices are at an all-time high today. However, we love what Megarexx has done with the F-250, a pickup that ticks all the boxes of a potential buyer. So you may end up spending more to achieve a full tank, but it may just be worth it.
For this feature, we’re taking a look at Megarexx’s upgrades, the F-250, and why we can’t stop loving this beautiful monster.
A look at the illustrious history of Ford’s F-Series
If Beauty and the Beast was a real-life person or entity, it would have to be the new one F250 Megaraptor Crew Cab Lariat. Being named after a dinosaur with great strength and speed should mean something, yes?
In addition, the F250 has always impressed us with its outstanding properties. Let’s learn a thing or two about its history and why Megarexx chose it for this purpose.
In July 1917, Ford released the Model TT truck in the United States as an upgrade to the existing Model T truck. What it did was improve on the current Model T offerings. It came with a strong body, with the engine and cab design based on the T.
In 1935, a new truck called the Model 50 was launched, which relied on a V-8 engine built exclusively by Ford engineers for its vehicles. In 1948, the first generation of Ford’s F-Series became a reality. Immediately after the end of World War II, Ford began production of a new truck.
From the F-1 to the F-8, they set the stage for a future of stunning releases. From 1953 to 1956 Ford’s second generation F-Series. The wonderful thing about this time is that the company decided to rename its models and after the name change it was. For example, the first generation F-1 was converted into the F-100.
While the trucks received newer upgrades in 1957, the major changes were to the exterior styling. In 1959 Ford made the four-wheel drive layout accessible on subsequent models. A new generation of the F-Series was produced between 1961 and 1966. The 1966 model featured decent features like power steering, air conditioning, and power brakes.
For the first time, the trucks bore the company name on the hood. This happened in the fifth generation models. In 1997, car fans saw a major restyling. At that time, the automaker expanded sales of the F-150 to regular drivers. However, the F-250 and F-350 remained within reach of those looking for immense towing capabilities.
What is a Super Duty Truck?
Previously, we discussed the history of the F-Series, but it wasn’t until 1998 that the term “Super Duty” was added to the trucks’ title. We also pointed out that Ford made the F-150 more acceptable to regular drivers, leaving the F-250 and F-350 as they were. Trucks in the Super Duty category are the F-250, F-350, F-450, F-550 and F-600.
These trucks are equipped with a reinforced chassis and suspension that help them handle high towing and payload demands. In terms of engines, they are equipped with Ford PowerStroke diesel engines.
The Megarexx Trucks F-250 is one proud beast
Megarexx trucks loves adventure, especially when it comes to turning pickup trucks into terrifying creatures on wheels. The company has a custom build policy, which means they will work to your exact specifications. According to Megarexx Head, each model is unique and no two should ever look the same.
The North Carolina-based company delivers different trucks every time. They offer a basic conversion and are happy to make your dreams come true in the upgrade afterwards.
The Megarexx F-250 has a big engine and more
The engine is a 6.7 liter PowerStroke V8 monster with 475 hp and 1,050 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, and you now get 4.88 gears. Key suspension components are dual steering stabilizers, a 6 inch lift kit, Bilstein shocks, etc.
Its exterior design is a delight to stare at
Its wheels are 20-inch 3-piece aluminum military MRAP plus 46-inch Michelin XZL tires. A major change from the original F-250’s build is the 1.5-inch offset of the front axle. Let’s not forget the spectacular woodland camouflage shade that comes in either brown or green.
The upgraded F-250 is a must-have vehicle
The only disadvantage of this pickup is its enormous thirst for diesel. You get extra features like a 10-speaker stereo, Megarexx train horns, and electric steps to make getting in and out of the truck easier.
Although the starting price is $169,950, additional features will cost you more. And if you fancy driving a full-blown monster, get the Megarexx F-250 now.
