2013 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor - Proper Diagnosis
When you think of an orthodontist, pictures of mud bogging, trail jumping, and high-speed freeway blasts probably don't come to mind. That's why we like Dr. Kim Forrest of Katy, Texas, so much. He's the proud owner of this killer 2013 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, and he's not afraid to get it dirty and use it the way we would. When it came time to transform the Raptor into a legit off-road machine, he turned to the pros at Extreme Offroad and Performance, also in Katy, Texas. There, the team upgraded the suspension with a complete Stage 2 system from Icon Vehicle Dynamics and swapped the wheels and tires for 20-inch Fuel Mavericks and 35-inch General Grabbers. Baer Extreme+ Big Brakes bring the Super Crew to an immediate halt.
Looking good was important, but Dr. Forrest also wanted to run with the big dogs, so Extreme added a Roush supercharger, cool-air intake, and American Racing Headers long-tubes. Under the hood, Jordan O'Krinsky, also of Extreme Offroad, handled the custom green hydrodipping. The interior also features some of Jordan's hydrodipping handiwork, as well as a Roush boost A/C vent gauge.
Jordan O’Krinsky of Extreme Offroad, in Katy, Texas, disassembled the two-piece Fuel Maverick wheels and hydrodipped the faces and center caps for a truly unique look.
