The Ford Excursion is about the manliest SUV ever produced, but this Excursion takes the cake. At 32 feet in length and tipping the scales at 15,000 pounds, this custom-built stretched limo turned monster truck is larger than life.
And it’s going to take someone larger than life write the number of zeros listed on this one-off truck’s for-sale sign. The cost: a cool $1 million large.
Yep, this million-dollar machine was built by Big Toyz Racing from a stretched Ford Excursion limousine. The truck now features a fully boxed roll cage integrated with its steel tube frame chassis. Two solid axles offer 4WD and four-wheel steering. Bolted on to each axle are 66-inch-tall tires and 26-inch-long nitrogen-filled shock absorbers. Power comes from a carbureted 8.5-liter V-8 that makes upwards of 750 horsepower.
Beyond its mechanicals, the interior seats at least 12 people in individual racing seats. Climbing into the 12-foot-tall beast is made easy by the folding staircase incorporated into rear hatch. Once in, diamond-plate floors run the length of the truck with clear Plexiglas offering a side view from the sunken walkway.
It’s hard to imagine a useful application for this rig beyond a big corporate advertising campaign or some sort of tour vehicle for a safari or arctic landscape. What’s more, it’s hard picturing someone dropping a million bucks on a vehicle that’s most certainly NOT road-worthy.

SUVs are a great thing, but sometimes you just need more. That’s where this comes in. It started life as a 2000 Ford Excursion and was transformed into the colossal beast you see here by a company called JD3 out of Tucson, Arizona. Affectionately nicknamed Rockzilla, this goliath is powered by a stock 6.8-liter V-10 backed by a stock transmission, transfer case, and axles directly off the donor Excursion. There are plenty of aftermarket parts, however, like the 54-inch Michelin tires and hand-welded exoskeleton.
This isn’t just a one-off vehicle though. JD3 has built more than 75 Rockzillas, all custom ordered to the buyer’s desires. Don’t want to wait four months to have yours built? Luckily, this one currently up for auction on Ebay. For a cool $72,000, this particular Rockzilla is ready to roll over nearly any obstacle in its path.
