Let’s face it, some people just need a semi-truck for either work or personal reasons, but here’s what you shouldn’t do. One person decided to take a Ford Explorer, remove its wheels, and then set the body on a Freightliner semi-truck chassis. We’re not sure how well it drives, but this vehicle does have considerably more storage space than a standard SUV, especially with the large bed in the rear. One caveat, aside from its looks: double parking is inevitable. Read more for another image.

The sixth-generation Ford Bronco was already designed to go off-road as a mid-size SUV, but Illinois-based Maxlider Brothers Customs wanted to take the vehicle to a whole new level.

No performance modifications have yet been revealed, but straight from the factory it can come equipped with a 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 generating 310 hp and 400 lb⋅ft of torque, mated to either a 10-speed automatic or 7-speed Getrag manual transmission.

Many know that the proper way to install a camper is to first lower the back of it first, then the front, working in increments of a few inches at a time until the camper is resting on the truck.

This person apparently did not read the instructions. Read more for another picture.

Kyle Williams may be a 400-ton Caterpillar truck driver by trade, but in his spare time, he’s in the garage making his automobile dreams come true. His latest project is a 1995 Ford Mustang with an extreme forced induction setup, or to be more specific, eight turbochargers, one for each cylinder. Originally, the project car was supposed to be a 2003 Ford Mustang that ended up in an unfortunate coolant spill accident, and this project was the result.

Westen Champlin is an auto enthusiast with a taste for extreme modifications, and his Ford F-150 Raptor is no exception. Tracks are nothing new and have even been installed on vehicles such as the Tesla Model 3, but how many of them have been taken to the Sahara desert, or at least Little Sahara in Oklahoma? None that we’re aware of, and its twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 making 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, is definitely enough to haul it around the dunes.

Ken Block’s insane Hoonicorn is an all-wheel-drive drift machine powered by a twin-turbocharged V8 generating 1,400hp based on a 1965 Ford Mustang. The beast runs on methanol fuel, which helps the engine run quite a bit cooler than petrol. Rob Dahm’s four-rotor, all-wheel-drive Mazda RX-7 is definitely no slouch either. It has a tube frame chassis, a billet four-rotor engine generating 1,240hp, mated to a sequential transmission. Read more for the drag racing showdown and additional information.
