The Ultimate Funhaver is a 2015 F-150 on-and-off road beast with five Recaro seats ready to give passengers the ride of their life

What is more fun than riding copilot in a drift car? Try buckling into one of four Recaro race seats in the Ultimate Funhaver. Vaughn Gittin Jr. is known for his incredible talent behind the wheel, but when it was announced that he would be building a 2015 F-150 with on-and-off road capabilities, we couldn’t wait to see what he had up his sleeve.

The F-150 was released during the 2014 SEMA show. The truck, which was built by Kibbetech Offroad, featured a 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6, Magnaflow exhaust, custom Currie full-floating F9 rear end, and a K&N air intake.

Since its debut, the truck has attended several events including the recent Auto Enthusiast Day in Anaheim, California. Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s Ultimate Funhaver was seen drifting the course in typical fashion, but an additional element was added this year that caught the crowd by surprise.

K&N driver Vaughn Gittin Jr. is well known in the drift world, but his 2015 F-150 is a one-of-a-kind vehicle that extends beyond the drift track into the off-road enthusiast group

As passengers piled into each seat, buckled up, and pulled out their phones to catch the action, each rider quickly realized they were about to get much more than just a drift demonstration. As the truck drifted around the track alongside Cody Currie’s Pro Lite Race Truck, Vaughn Gittin positioned the F-150 towards the ramp in the middle of the course, mashed the gas pedal and went airborne. The jam-packed truck did not see much height during each jump, but it was also accommodating five people, including Vaughn Gittin Jr. Regardless, the crowd cheered as the truck landed safely and continued its demonstration.

This was not the first time Vaughn Gittin Jr. has jumped his F-150 at an event. The truck has seen quite a bit of airtime including some dirt action during a Speedhunters photo shoot last year.

The K&N-sponsored driver is always ready to put on a great show, but when the Ultimate Funhaver is present, there’s no telling what Vaughn Gittin Jr. will do out on course. As for the lucky passengers that rode along in the tricked out F-150, they will probably be talking about their experience for quite some time. By the looks on each of their faces, no one was disappointed by Vaughn Gittin’s show at this year’s Auto Enthusiast Day.
