Raptor SD On the Cover of Petersen’s 4 Wheel & Off-Road Magazine

We can now fully let the cat out of the bag on the details of the Raptor SD.  Until now, we have remained somewhat tight lipped about the exact components used, as we wanted to see the Petersen’s Magazine featuring the RSD hit the newsstands first.  That time has come!  The Raptor SD received the honors of adorning the cover of the latest issue(June 2013) of Petersen’s, coupled with a detailed write up covering the build process with TONS of pictures outlining the arduous week long process.

For those that haven’t heard about our latest project, long story short, we took a stock 2012 Ford SuperDuty Powerstroke and turned it into a Ford Raptor SVT killer in a one week period by using a conglomeration of parts from various suppliers to boost the off-road capabilities, street manners, and horsepower of this popular truck ten fold.  And without further ado, here’s the list of components used that allowed us to create the fire-breathing monster we call the “Raptor SD.”
