Ken Block is a legend in the worlds of stage rally and drifting, but he enjoys driving in the desert just as much. To best do that, he needed something that could barrel over rough dirt paths and sand dunes with ease. So he had this awesome wide-body Raptor built. We're jealous.

This F-150 Raptor, built by SVC Offroad in Lake Forest, California, has everything Mr. Hoonigan himself needs to get from point A to point B through the desert without issue. The biggest upgrades are with the suspension system. There's a triple-bypass Fox Racing system with a set of absolutely massive dampers tucked behind the Fifteen52 Turbomac HD wheels. These are great for desert terrain because they can handle anything from smaller imperfections on the road to massive vertical transitions seamlessly—all while providing excellent ride quality.

Fitted under the fiberglass fenders are a set of massive off-roading tires and custom control arms to round out the suspension package. There's also a new front bumper and a pair of Rigid-branded light bars.

Block took his car to Moab to do a shakedown in preparation for the summer he has planned with truck, and it looks like he had of a hell of a time.
