We have seen hundreds of F-150s but few as cool as this vigorous 1994 Ford F-150 Extra Cab prerunner. This F-150 wasn’t built to be a weekend warrior, it was built as a serious off-road performer. Hours of blood and sweat went in to making this truck capable of wildest thing in the sand box.
At the heart of this beast lies a ferocious 480 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque coming from a fuel-injected Ford 427. The motor is mated to a built C-6 transmission which has been modded with a manual valve body and an Art Carr shifter. The C-6 runs to a Currie 40-spline 9-inch rearend that helps the truck navigate its way through the desert terrain.
Since this F-150 was designed to fly through the desert at 90 MPH, its suspension had to be rebuilt. The front suspension contains new twin I-beams, performance radius arms and Warn hubs. A performance 4-link containing King bypass coilovers was fabricated on the rearend. This suspension allows the truck to catch air on the dunes with no problem. The truck rolls on Pro Comp beadlock race wheels with 37-inch tires.
The interior has been rebuilt and now contains three Mastercraft 3G seats complete with racing harness. The aftermarket dash looks like it belongs in an airplane rather a pickup truck. It features a RacePack Digital Dash, a Race Radio/Intercom and headsets that were wired by James Linn Motorsports. To help guide the crew through the ever-changing desert, an 8-inch Lowrance Color GPS has been mounted to the dash.
The builder didn’t mess around when he built this F-150, it’s a serious off-road machine. As you can tell from the photo below the truck performs well. In case you’re wondering, the truck is now available for purchase at Race-Dezert.
