The Ford F-150 Raptor is already a really capable, lifted pickup truck with amazing performance and tremendous off-roading capabilities. But for some people, that isn't enough. And so there's this.

This is a 2012 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor that's been transformed from a normal, everyday, already-very-impressive Ford Raptor into ... a monster truck. That's right: a monster truck. This is a Ford Raptor monster truck. It has a massive lift, even more massive tires and obviously an enormous amount of suspension work that make it precisely what you see today.

Despite this Raptor's (presumably pricey) monster-truck conversion, it hasn't been driven very much: It's a 2012 model, and it was sold new in June 2012. According to the Carfax report, it had already covered 6,000 miles by December 2012 -- but in the ensuing four-and-a-half years, it managed just 3,900 additional miles, for a total of just under 10,000, which is where it stands today.

And when I say "stands," what I really mean is "towers," because that's exactly what this thing does. Getting in must be a challenge, but the payoff comes when you meet something you wish to run over, as this truck can almost surely crush just about anything in its path. And if it won't crush it, it can probably drive right over it without complaint.

This Raptor is currently on sale at D-Patrick Ford in Evansville, Indiana, for $75,991 -- big money compared to other 2012 Raptor models, but probably a good deal when you consider how much work, time and expense went into this build.
