If you’re into hugely expensive modified Hummers (and let’s be honest—who isn’t?), you might be aware of Michigan-based tuner/restomodder Mil-Spec Automotive. Now, though, the company has branched out to take on America’s second favorite son—the Ford F-150.

We know what you’re all thinking—why not just buy an F-150 Raptor? Well, Ford currently only offers the Baja-style pickup with an EcoBoost V6. Mil-Spec’s F-150 uses a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 producing 500hp. Nice.
