You'll Want Ken Block's RaptorTRAX Even More Once You See The Bed

Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

Hoonigan dropped pictures of Ken Block's treaded Ford Raptor noshing snow in Aspen, quietly revealing a feature I reckon is almost as awesome as those Mattracks: rear-facing racing seats in the bed.

Riding in the rear-facers of my aunt's old Volvo wagon was exhilarating as a kid. Multiply that experience by a factor of "Ford Raptor" and "Ken Block" all while heading to a backcountry ski drop-in and I just might die of happiness.

I've wanted to strap Subaru BRAT-style seats into the bed of my next pickup since finding that 1978 Subie advert crumpled up in dad's secret magazine collection.

Yeah, once I get that set up I'm sure the ladies will be just begging to catch a tan while we go jumping sand dunes... unnecessary and extreme risks of personal safety are still cool, right guys?

Fun fact: The BRAT's name is all-caps because it's an acronym for "Bi-drive Recreational All-terrain Transport," and is considered the "number one scarcest vehicle" on AutoTrader based on how many people searched for it (2,700) and how many were listed (1) in a month.

I dig the snowboard mounts on the tubing back there too. I'm told there's also winch under there somewhere, but I haven't been able to spot it yet.

Just in case all that awesomeness wasn't enough to make me jealous of Kensington Blockenworth's toy collection, he had to go and post a picture of his SuperDuty tow truck. You're a lucky bastard, KB. Now get out there and shoot some epic videos with these rigs already!
