Ford F-150 Raptor Slammed, Widened For The 2018 Tokyo Auto Salon

The utility of the Ford F-150 Raptor lies in its ability to tackle difficult off-road terrain, and to do it at speeds that might cripple any lesser stock truck. So what happens when you take an F-150 Raptor, lower its suspension by several inches, and fit it with an aggressive widebody kit?

Strictly speaking, you kind of remove its core competency, but at least you end up with a truck that looks rather interesting.

This Ford F-150 Raptor, built by TRA-Kyoto, will go on display at the Toyo Tires booth at the 2018 Tokyo Auto Salon. As you can see, it’s been lowered by a significant margin, and wears massive body-color fender flares front and rear that enclose a wide set of Toyos. The body kit, which includes the fender flares, a one-piece front valance and bumper cover, and a unique set of rails, comes from TRA-Kyoto’s Pandem brand. We’re not so sure we’d ever want to own anything like it, but it would look right at home at the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association Show in Vegas, and should be just as comfortable at Japan’s comparable Tokyo Auto Salon.
