    The RaptorAddict Raptor is now getting a full make over! This beast has been out of the picture since last May due to being used as a prototype guinea pig for a new body kit coming to market. When that'll be done, well, I really don't know. But this tear-down on the truck sparked the window for another upgrade.

    The RaptorAddict truck has been through 3 phases already.

    Now it's time for Phase 4. This phase will consist of a build that will be versatile for on-road use, travel and comfort, extreme off road use, along with having the ability (with a small amount of extra upgrades) to pass tech for 1800 Class (Sportsman) BITD.

    The truck is now at a SVC Motorsports (Special Vehicle Concepts) located in Lake Elsinore, CA. This is a full race shop with the expertise and ability to build a race beast at its FINEST! I am instructing them on what I want done and without any hesitation, they are ready to build! Now, I am no actual pro in building trucks on my own, so they will be using their own professional judgement on building the way I want, but with their own way of doing it correctly.

    This will not completely be geared to become a Luxury Performance Raptor, but aiming toward a on big bucket of fun! You will not see 4-linked suspension, nor a front long travel kit. This is an upgrade built to show everyone what kind of upgrades can be added to create a great monster that can be used for daily travel, off road fun, and if pushed a tad more.... off-road racing!

    SVC will be having some NEW and INCREDIBLE products coming to market soon, so stay tuned as we add to this build thread.

    After you get it built, are you gonna take it off some sweet jumps?

    Everyone notice how young Kirk looked when he first got the truck?

    Awesome Kirk. Looking forward to the build. Are the products you mention above going to be from SVC. Like tie rods, LCA, steering knuckle?

    As of now it's up in the air as to what parts are going on the truck as far as which brands. My truck has been a guinea pig truck for suspension in the past. For instance, RPG. As most know, I have pushed RPG products to their max and has been incredible. I will always praise their products. I will be pushing SVC's products to the max as well. I will give updates on everything.

    Sounds like a cool build! I need an oil cooler set up like that. My transmission spends too much time in the red.
