MY CONFESSION

well here it goes.....on the day before christmas eve i left with some buddies to go christmas shopping and we ended up about an hour south of my house to check out a 2011 ford raptor super crew. the super crew had just been released and i had never seen one before, and my friends and i being the truck guys that we are we had to give it a look. i believe i was almost completely under the truck at the time when a voice from above said "so you wanna take it for a drive".......i don't believe i'm the only guy on here that would have taken them up on the offer. after the drive, which was quite impressive, i was ready for the insulting offer on my 2005 blue beast and i was gonna enjoy telling them that i had nothing for them. as i predicted the insult came and i told them thanks but no thanks and tried to roll out to start my shopping a day earlier than normal. before i could get out they asked what it would take to make a deal and that was my chance to make a ridiculous offer right back at them. after 3 hours of me saying no and them coming closer and closer to my offer my buddies were cleaning out my truck and putting it all in my new ride. all i can tell you is this if you ever wanna buy a new vehicle go on the day before christmas eve instead of the last day of the year cuz you will be the only customer there and they get desperate. i really enjoy the time and knowledge i gather here and will continue to try to offer any help i can and if you get a chance to drive a 6.2 raptor.....DO IT!

Alright, alright..... PICTURES OR BAN!

I've always loved the Raptors, but there's no way I could leave my crew cab. When I heard they were releasing a SuperCrew, my ears perked up.

And if you don't mind me asking, how much did they give you for you truck?

And even better, how much did you end up paying for the Raptor?

Congrats bro, I've been eyeing a Raptor for a LONG time! I haven't test drove one just because I'm sure I'd end up in the same situation as you...haha. The only thing keeping me from doing so is I enjoy no monthly payments on my truck How do you like that 6.2?

Yeah, lets see some pics. I glanced at one when I was at the dealer a few months back, they are pretty sharp but the price tags are rediculous

MMMM Yes, that's the best mod I've ever done to my truck.
