The Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is without a doubt, the most badass unmodified truck money can buy. It can tackle boulders, sand dunes, off-road courses, and is even driven at high speed across the desert by the Arizona Border Patrol. We love it, but we do wish it had proper competition. 

Although you can buy a Ram 1500 and turn it into a Ram Runner with aftermarket MOPAR parts and accessories (pictured), Chrysler is now thinking of making a more direct Raptor competitor out of the Ram 1500. 

The exact route Chrysler takes with this project is still undetermined, but we're hoping the Ram just gets handed over to Ralph Gilles and the rest of the SRT team.
