Compared to the standard Forte Koup, the Forte Koup Mud Bogger has a four-inch body and suspension lift along with meaty 28-in. off-road tires. The fenders and side skirts were modified and custom riveted fender flares have been added to make room for the bigger wheels. A panoramic roof with a vinyl pushback top gives way to the stripped-down interior where the carpet has been removed and the entire floor is lined with Line-X protective coating. The stock seats of the Forte Koup have also been replaced with two Sparco Evo II Red Race Seats and a hand-built roll cage powder coated white to match the wheels.
