BEYOND RUGGED RIDES: TOYO FERRET

At OXX we build premium products for people who work and play outside — and getting where you’re going is part of the fun. We build for life’s most extreme situations so we’re highlighting some of the epic vehicles out there today that also strive to exceed expectations. Power and performance are what lies inside these OXX certified Beyond Rugged Rides.

The Ferret began as an armored scout vehicle being used by the British Military circa 1959. Notorious for being small, fast, and perfect to negotiate rough terrain off road. Today TOYO has made a few badass adjustments, creating a new breed of vehicle to take us off the grid.

Originally created to display Toyo’s toughest tires, this concept now has six 39 inch Toyo Open Country Maximum Traction custom wheels. Each is fitted to the upgraded chassis, along with brand new King Off-Road Racing Shocks. As if that wasn’t intense enough the auxiliary middle wheels are hydraulic and can be adjusted for any conditions.

To add speed to this beast they’ve also swapped out the old engine for a heavy duty LS V8. Another awesome feature is the custom built grappling hook launcher attached to the winch cable to help this ride make any climb. No matter the territory, the Ferret can tear across at top speeds. It’s modern upgrades and intimidating history make it the coolest concept we’ve seen in awhile. The Toyo Ferret is officially a ride we are proud to call Beyond Rugged.
