The popular TRX-4M High Trail Edition is now available as a 1979 Ford® F-150® pickup. This newest edition to the TRX-4M family features exacting scale detail and oil filled shocks, combined with the High Trail’s lifted, long-wheelbase, big-tire stance.


The High Trail edition’s Factory Installed Long Arm Lift Kit and larger tires raise the center ground clearance over 35% for a dramatic lifted stance. Revised shock mounts and extended links ensure the truck maintains its carefully-tuned suspension geometry for peak performance on challenging terrain.


Larger 2.4″ Mickey Thompson® Baja Pro™ XS replicate the full size tire’s aggressive tread pattern and fill out the High Trail Edition’s wheel wells for an authentic “lifted truck” look. Sticky compound rubber and trail-tuned foam inserts give extra “bite” for superior traction on the trail.


The High Trail Edition’s steel frame rails extend the wheelbase out to 162mm to capture the pickup’s real-world proportions perfectly. A longer wheelbase also translates into greater climbing stability and a smoother, more stable ride over rough terrain.
