Factory Five Racing has been making and selling all kinds of cool recreations for years now, ranging from modernized Shelby Cobras to ’30s hot rods to one-off supercars. However, the company has decided to move in an entirely new direction with the brand new Factory Five XT-1 Pre-Runner F-150, which essentially turns any 2015-2020 Ford F-150 model into a high-flying, Raptor-beating monster of an off-road machine.
Unlike most upgrades out there, the Factory Five XT-1 Pre-Runner F-150 goes far beyond a simple lift kit and/or suspension upgrades, instead ditching the truck’s factory frame for a brand new tubular steel unit designed using SolidWorks CAD software that’s 17 feet long and weighs 800 pounds. That’s a full 100 pounds heavier than the F-150’s stock ladder frame, but according to Factory Five, it’s twice as strong – perfect for high-speed off-road activities.
From there, the outfit adds a custom long travel suspension at both ends with remote reservoir dual-adjustable Fox shocks, tubular upper and lower control arms, beefy sway bars, and a four-link setup with coilovers out back, giving it a front suspension travel of 16 inches and a whopping 20 inches in the rear.
To give the XT-1 the looks to back up such serious upgrades. Factory Five adds a custom front end, hood, and bed, along with functional vents, a carbon fiber front fascia, and a steel-off-road rear bumper. Those parts help make it 90 inches wide at both the front and rear fenders, which is 3.5 inches wider than a Hummer H1. The cost of all this goodness is $24,990, not including the donor truck, paint, and wheels and tires, though there are plenty of additional options that can drive that price even higher.
