Video: ATC Turns Raptors Into Disabled-Friendly 4x4s

The concept of disabled accessibility has made some significant leaps and bounds in the past two decades. What was once the challenge of creating ramped walkways into buildings has now become a question of which automobiles are suitable for intensive re-engineering–and most of those have just been minivans, anyway.

atcraptor_3All-Terrain Conversions (ATC), however, has been in the business of turning GM trucks and SUVs into disabled-friendly vehicles for the better part of 15-years now. The company, based out of Markle, Indiana, has made a name for itself by doing some severe alterations to Silverados, Sierras, Yukons, Tahoes, Suburbans, and Yukon XLs, all with electronic ramps that extend and retract either the passenger or driver seats.

This latest video, however, shows ATC is getting ready to make a big leap; not just to Ford, but to its landmark 4×4, the first-generation Raptor. As the video demonstrates, the ingress process is one that takes less than a minute to complete: a man in a wheelchair sidles up to the truck, keeps his hands and feet inside the ramp, the ramp elevates and retracts inside the cab, and down come the doors.

Down comes the doors, and voila! Ready to rock!

All told, the machine took less than 45-seconds to complete the cycle. The video goes on to show the exit cycle as well, progressing smoothly and quickly. All in all, this mod isn’t for everybody (MSRP for a Silverado conversion, for example, costs up to $27,900), but for the right customer, it’s one that’s definitely worth checking out.
