    I like it like that. No kids here. That's more than enough room for me and groceries and stuff like that.
    F150 Shelby what?!?!?!? lol


    No kids here.
    But I do have a dog and that's more than enough room for me and groceries and such. Plus, it looks 100% better than the screwcab.


    That blue though,.........
    That looks really good.


    I love it.
    Looks more aggressive. Guy in my neighborhood has a brand new scab Raptor and it looks killer.

    Given Corvette racing won the championship 3 of 4 yrs during (both driver and team) the Ford GT race program, you could argue they had the superior team. They all have the same rule book to work from, and BOP is a reality for them all as well. It's how you navigate within those boundaries that separates the good teams from the champions.

    The more I see of it the more I like it but, I have always been a fan of wide fender "prerunner" looks

    As much as I’d like it to be, that looks photoshopped like a mofo.

    It would break upon landing, just like Block’s truck or worse.

    I’m pretty skeptical of that. That’s about the height that Ken Block’s BUILT Raptor was jumping taking damage.

    Im not seeing the Heavier TRX managing that STOCK, unless Bilstein and Dodge pulled some kind of sorcery with that suspension.

    Last thing I read was those Bilsteins are 2.5s, if that’s the case I can see it happening. I’m considering doing a full King 3.0 package but I‘ve got buddies with the 2.5s that handle a Cummins pretty well on 5 footers. It’s the prolonged use that heats the fluid I’d be worried about. This thing is 2000lb lighter so...plus I know the frame was strengthened supposedly beyond the Raptors design. Only time will tell though.

    Oh i fully agree, there’s a reason we don’t have video of this jump.

    All depends how the landing is shaped... If he's going to flat then it'll hurt, if it's a perfectly calculated down sloped landing it could be just fine. Pictures can be deceiving but that one looks like it'll hurt

    Watched it this morning .....love the interior . I am curious why we haven't seen anything of it in action other than the weak press release.

    I guess all in due time

    Truck is a bad mother. Ford better have an answer if they don't want a hit to Raptor sales.

    Saw a TRX commercial on TV last night. cant say I’ve ever seen a Raptor commercial?
    TRX not even on the streets yet and Ram is doing a better job of marketing it than Ford for the Raptor.

    Dodge has been crushing marketing for years now. Their marketing team needs a raise.

    That interior is killer. I think that's the upgraded interior. So nice. The exterior,...so nice.



    Yup. I saw one the other night as well. FCA is killing it with their marketing team.
