    shhhh. Don’t type that too loudly... Kaz will be on you like white on rice. Apparently, the only opinion valid in here is that of the guy who has more experience at the mall parking lot than actual off road use (self admitted). Lol

    Yes, Dodge interior is on another level, but Raptor still has a great interior, numb nuts.

    What takes it to another level? It can’t just be the big ass screen. When I watch the video review of the TRX there are things I thought were nice, others dumb as ****. Like the shift paddles.

    this is a subjective measure, but to me, the Dodges interior feels opulent, more modern and less cookie cutter, almost exotic. The center screen, the way the dash flows, the gauges, etc.

    I get what you’re saying. I like my interior. Well except for the fact it is dirty.

    You should bring your Taco out to RallyReady this Saturday and we can have the debate in person.

    why are you Raptor guys so insecure about your choice o_O

    good for you. I think the whole forum knows it by now

    insecurity about your 70k V6 powered truck is a bitch


    You got a point? I would rather spend my money on guns than overpriced “offroad trucks”. You do realize that his Tacoma has a minivan motor

    I like the Raptor interior too, I like the Dodge’s better.

    My interior is trashed atm.

    Appreciate the invite to whatever that is, but a little short notice, bromigo. But maybe we can get together another time. I go off-roading every now and again...

    That’s Hidden Falls right? That’s a big no go with the Raptor. RallyReady is a track out around Lockhart.

    yes. Why is it a no no? My buddy had no issues with his raptor (look behind the taco in the photo I posted), other than some minor scrapes, on his?

    Here's a picture just because....

    I'm probably gonna sell it soon cause' 250 foot smokey burnouts are more fun than 150 foot smokey burnouts....

    You would be the first to recommend Hidden Falls for a Raptor. Everything else I’ve heard is it is more of a technical rock crawling place. Not going to lie, that does not excite me. I get bored and inpatient going slow and end up gassing it harder than I should and crunch shit.

    Wrong.

    For example, a solid front axle vehicle will articulate a LOT more than a LT IFS will but the IFS will have a lot more suspension travel.

    You are out of your element

    I still could end up with one, but I sure as hell won’t reserve it. I’m no svtp baller so I’ll wait for the hype to die down and if I see discounts like you do with every other hellcat powered offering from dodge and Jeep, then I’ll buy. Or I could be a poor and just keep my current ram lol

    I’m not “recommending“... simply stating that fun can still be had in a raptor, minus a few scrapes and bruises. It’s an off road park. The last think you’d be is “bored” where I’d take you... You would be surprised what the truck can do.

    my opinion as I cross shopped my ram with the F150 platinum and even the raptor.

    the material on the dash, the seats, the door trim panels, and yes the huge 1/ inch display as well as incorporated physical buttons and switches all felt and appeared nicer.

    that said the F150 platform was knowingly towards the end of its run and due for an update. I just needed something sooner than that.

    last time I checked, that’s what they come with.

    I’d be in need of a laugh too if I was you.

    I understand you.
