Golfer Bubba Smith has a bullet proof 'Oakley' branded Ford Raptor. Al Janc, Oakley Sports Marketing Manager of Golf, explains, “Bubba Watson does a lot of research on things he is interested in,” said Janc. “When Oakley showed interest in adding Bubba to our global list of sponsored athletes, Bubba researched Oakley and was really impressed by the way we approach marketing. One of the things that really impressed Bubba was our Sports Marketing trucks at Oakley Headquarters; in particular a surf specific truck with all the cool gadgets we had installed after market. As a result, we decided to build Bubba this bulletproof vehicle that he could enjoy, while helping to represent the brand and at the same time protect he and his family. It was great fun taking what he wanted in a truck and adding things we thought were cool to come up with this finished product together.”We're fans of the 2014 Ford Super Duty F-350 King Ranch, but...this has a nice look. No doubt.Oakley adds:The actual build was done by Mike Smith Fabrication out of Huntington Beach, California.The biggest feature on the truck comes in the form of a bulletproof exterior, including the windows. Why did Watson want a bulletproof truck? Why not? It’s Bubba Watson. Beyond the defense details, the truck is custom wrapped in a black digital cammo print. The front of the truck features a reworked 6160 billet aluminum Oakley grille. A custom Oakley logo was machine worked to fit the curvature of the hood and made of the same material as the grille, which is also commonly found in racecar parts.The exterior is not the only part of the truck featuring unique customization. The interior was redesigned with lime green features; one of Watson’s favorite colors. With green leather stitching on the seats, complete with custom Oakley branded head rests and green dashboard features, the truck’s interior is unlike anything you’ve seen before.And in true Watson/Oakley fashion, a final custom feature includes four distinct horn sounds at the touch of a remote button, including the legendary General Lee jingle.Apparently no budget left for a video camera.**Follow us on Twitter, Subscribe by Email, View via Our Mobile Site, or Return Home
