The corporation builds anything from compact buggies to trophy vehicles, and it has a short while ago started building pre-runner vehicles with some fundamental amenities, this sort of as in its newest instance, the Reaper, which was initially uncovered by Off Street Racer.
This truck was constructed for the proprietor of the L.A. Dodgers, and it might glimpse like a Ford Raptor from the outdoors, but anything underneath the fiberglass physique is anything at all but. The farthest from Ford it gets is the powertrain, which combines an engine from Dougans Racing Engines that’s based on a huge block Chevy design, and the transmission is a GM 4L80E four-speed computerized constructed by Gearworks. The engine displaces 555 cubic inches, or 9.1 liters, and helps make 800 horsepower and seven hundred pound-toes of torque on pump gasoline. The chassis is intended by Jimco, and it can be regarded as the “Victory” chassis, which has been employed on past Jimco Luxury Pre-runners. The impartial front suspension and four-hyperlink strong rear axle suspension is also a Jimco design, and it makes use of Fox Racing springs and exterior bypass shocks. Entrance suspension journey is 26 inches, and rear journey is 32 inches. Brembo six-piston brakes with fourteen-inch rotors prevent 17-inch beadlock wheels with 40-inch off-road tires. Amazingly, it can be evidently street legal at least in Arizona, according to the corporation. You may probably want to verify your state’s regulations to see if you can register it for the street if you get a single up.
The inside is even now evidently based on off-road race vehicles, with not much in the way of styling, and a preponderance of rugged shows for navigation and engine position. Even so, there are a range of tweaks to make it a lot more hospitable. Just about every aspect of the dash is coated in leather-based, as are the bucket seats that also get a diamond-stitched sample. The truck even has air conditioning and cruise manage. Which is about it as far as creature comforts, although. There are a assortment of radios, but that’s also one thing you’d get on a race truck, considering the fact that you’d need to have to be equipped to talk with your co-driver and crew.
There’s no pricetag for the Jimco Luxury Pre-runner, considering the fact that each and every truck is personalized constructed for its proprietor and can be customized in many approaches. Considering that a single of Jimco’s employed trophy vehicles is at present outlined for $two hundred,000, we might say a single of these personalized rides is going to charge perfectly into the six-figure array.
