It's still one of the coolest Hoonigan vehicles of all time, and while this rendering was done in the same spirit, it certainly brings new things to the table. It's actually kind of a joint project between him and his fans, who got to vote on their favorite features and add-ons.
Adding a widebody kit is the thing to do in any rendering these days, and the F-150 has that covered. But taking inspiration from the world of JDM tuning, this also comes with a carbon fiber hood, Celica-style mirrors, and large splitter and a diffuser at the back. Do they make Rays Volk wheels with six nuts? We don't know, but these look both lightweight and equally expensive.
Of course, you can't just ask a truck from half a century ago to go sideways. That's why this bad boy has a custom chassis, roll cage supporting the cab and extra support braces. We'd imagine this has some kind of racing suspension too, sticking those tires properly.
In a rather touching move, Block selected a 1977 Ford F-150 as a drifty tribute to his late father. This widebody rendered rival should go out to "Drift King" Keiichi Tsuchiya, the kind of dad every D1 fan wishes he had. Also, we wonder what he'd think of something like. Can somebody translate this to him?

You guys voted for it and here it is; a VERY beefy F150. I let you guys pick the parts, then I put in my touch with with the colors and materials. I’m really happy with how this turned out and I will definitely be doing more vote based builds . If you didn’t see my stories this past week, I’ve done a TON of polls showing different variations of parts and then the majority vote decided what stayed and what went. . Thank you to everyone who participated, you all rock
