Brenthel's Version Of The Raptor

How many of you have been drooling over the new Ford SVT Raptor ever since our Tech Inspection in the August 2009 issue? Although the Raptor comes rolling off the showroom floor ready to run off-road, this article proves you can improve upon anything with four wheels. Brenthel Industries got a call from Mohamed A., a customer based out of Virginia and Dubai, looking to increase the performance of his Raptor. Mohamed knew his truck would be in good hands having seen the numerous masterpieces rolling out of the Brenthel shop these days.

On top of meticulous welding, Brenthel is leading the way in aftermarket suspensions by creating kits designed off OEM 3D CAD files supplied from the manufacturers. What that means is Brenthel uses original drawings of each vehicle's suspension system to design its Baja kits, just like the Raptor kit Mohamed had added to his new truck. Each kit is 100-percent CAD designed from an engineering standpoint to work perfectly with each vehicle.
