My new truck

well before i stopped being so vocal around here, i think many knew i was getting a new truck. a 2011 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. back in june i got my new truck!








love my truck! but it wasnt the one i wanted.... we tried hard to get it, but nothing would go my way. well 2 months later..... something happened and i had to sell my truck......... what came up was the exact truck i wanted was gonna be built and my salesman knew it so he called me and asked if i was interested, i said i was, if its within reason.... and he said lemme sell your truck and ill give full value as trade in to offset the taxes. so 11pm on a wednesday we put up craigslist ad's and an ad on the raptor forum im on asking almost exactly what i paid. 10 am thursday he calls me and says take down the CL ad, we got lots of offers! unfortunatly the ones who were willing to pay full asking wanted to trade in vehicles, so one guy offered cash for $1k less then i paid (and 2 months and almost 1k miles later), so we took it! yesterday i took delivery on my brand new raptor!





and nose to nose with my old truck






its not gonna sit completly stock either, i already have a racing light bar with 4 KC 8" lights, an AirAid CAI ready to go, gonna add an BakFlip tonno and most likley a color matched Line-X spray in bedliner with wheel wells sprayed too (i might do a bedrug instead).


also to be added will be an electrical exhaust cut out to make it sound mean!!!! God i love this truck....

Thanks guys! i love it! i think ive had a permanant grin attached to my face since i heard the diesel engine of the truck towing mine come around the corner!


besides loving the color personally, i also wanted it so bad cuz that color is no more! they only did the Molten Orange for 2010 and 2011. so i have one now, with every option except the orange interior... i didnt care for it, i prefer the all black interior. being a limited edition color should help the resale value, but i dont plan on selling this one ever! im gonna die in it!

Problem with lifted trucks is the tires cost so damn much. I used to have a 2004 F-350 Crew Cab Diesel with a 9" lift and 40" Tires. Tires were over $3000 for a set of 4 and you would only get 40,000 to set maybe 50 if they wore out in the spring.

That truck looks awesome.

I've seen a few videos of that truck in action, its looks mean and insanely fun to drive.

The truck does look like something else. I'm sure Rusty is going to appreciate the buy.

35"s arent too bad, i think i found em online for about $270ish each.... and the BFG A/T's wear pretty well, on the red truck i got a set of 29" BFG's with about 25k miles on them, and they look brand new still.


yeah the size of this thing is immense.... the truck its nose to nose with is an F250 4x4, and the Raptor dwarves it. and the fun factor is huge too! its tough to keep the truck at the speed limit, it wants to jump to 100mph every time! and it doesnt feel like your going that fast either.... i had the black one up to 90 one time and felt like i was doing 65 in any other vehicle....
