I think they look bad ass with the baja style bed side and fenders.

Comes from the factory with 35's(I think) and like mentioned above 12 inches if travel. Watch out for the Velociraptor/jerk

Raptors are pretty badass. Not fast, but stupid capable off road, especially at higher speeds.

i test drove one and was very surprised on how well it rode on the highway also. I only drove one with the 5.4 so i dont know how the 6.2 power felt, but i was in a 2002F150 with the 5.4 and i was too disappointed with the power from the 5.4 that i passed on it and got my 06 TB SS for about 25 grand less haha

the 6.2 power isnt bad for the size its 6000lbs and has 315/70/17 off road tires so dont expect a ton out of it. i thought it did pretty well for the size down low, but not fast by any means i think i saw they do 6.5 0-60 and [email protected] 1/4 mile

Have you driven one or are you just regurgitating shit you read on the internet?

I heard Ford's 6.2 is based on GM'S LSX motors just like Chrysler's Hemi is based on the LSX.

Raptors are overpriced and grossly underpowered. For near $50K it should at least be a little quicker or already come supercharged, if you gave me one I'd definitely drive it but if I had to drop that kind of money on a truck I'd rather have a Sierra Denali.

Why not just buy the 5.4 and drop a supercharger on it with the money you saved...? Sure would be more than 26hp and 25tq.
