    2018 f150 raptor

    3.5 litres of turbo stupidity.

    I ordered one of these early last year but flipped the order to some cashed up guy then got back in the que mid last year.
    Not much to say about it at this stage. It's quite large.

    Nice, some of the suspension upgrades will leave you wondering WTF people do with these things to make them think the standard suspension is rubbish.

    I agree. The 3" fox setup give sonething like 14" of travel. I assume people lift them in an effort to get 37 or 39" tyres under them. But if your doing that, and changing the geometry, why not just start with an f150?
    I cannot see myself doing anything suspension wise.
    After having spent some time in traffic in it I think it could benefit from a sound system upgrade. So that will come in the future.
    I will keep it mechanically stock as long as I can until I see what other people kill on them, and if they seem solid exhaust, cooler and tune will be on the cards.
    It goes pretty well considering the size. Very easy to lay a decent patch taking off from a stand still, though I think it would really benefit from a true lsd, not this modern ediff shite.

    Good truck mate, by all accounts the new engine gets them moving. Got a mate in Bris who works for a mob that does US trucks, I tell you the maintenance costs scare me the hell away but I wish you well.

    This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

    Was behind an older 6.2ltr version of one of these yesterday....funny as I know it was pretty massive but given everyone around here seems to drive large 4WD's (and there were a few around it) it kinda dulled the size down a bit....still look like big brother next to a Ranger at the lights! Love it man, looks good!

    I hate dual cabs but love these. If I had to drive one in Australia I'd buy the biggest, ugliest, most powerful American thing I could. Mainly so I could look down at fucktards who drive Rangers.

    Such a subtly designed automobile. No doubt it fits right in with the locals though. Should be fun!

    I've been spending the odd weekend with people who ain't from dubai and becoming radicalized.
    This thing will never be a patch on their tb48 turbo Hollinger packing patrols and turbo LS sand rails.

    That's the sort of radicalisation I can wholeheartedly endorse.
