It's quite a bit different, actually.

7" wider than a standard f150, 35", different shox (Ford's term), obviously some different trim bits, HIDs, etc.
It will even give you a " courtesy wipe" .

One and two look pretty good. Were I forced to drive a pickup, that´s certainly better than a sharp stick in the eye, or a kick in the balls.

Those are just fiberglass panels...notice how the cab is not as wide. That's cause Ford just bolted on some panels to an F-150. I don't get how people pay that much for a tricked out F-150. My buddy rarely takes his off-road (usually opting to cram our stuff into my Jeep) because "it's a 55,000 dollar truck".

And therein lies the problem with the Raptor and their owners.

I agree. Who takes a $$$$$ truck off road? I don't get it. Way over priced for a Ford of any kind,

I have a 2012 black on black Raptor that I drive. It's a "company car". They're amazing trucks.

Where do you work that a company car is a Raptor?

I am guessing they just give him $ each month and let him pick what he wants.

I think that too but I just wanted clarification.

What 480 said. And our company recommends trucks and we have a deal with Ford.

We have a tendency to have to drive off-road more often. And I'm not in construction if that's what you're thinking.

Yep, but there are still significant differences between the Raptor and even a King Ranch F150. Now wether those differences are worth the extra dollars is a personal choice.

That goes for 94% of truck owners who have 4wd or anything else they rarely use (like the bed). However, they aren't spending my money, so I don't care.

Nah.

And yes JAB, it is nice. New company car every 5 years to do with it what we want.

And I don't work at a dealership either.

I mean I'm excited for it. Who cares if I go off road or not? It's a luxury truck that I can have fun with, use for the occasional load haul, drop the boat in the water, and then have plenty of room for the family. It's akin to having a Porsche and never going to the race track. What's it matter?
