Raptor really as wide as I've heard?

I heard that Ford made the Raptor 7 inches wider than a regular F150.
1: Is this true?
2: If so, is it super roomy inside?

That 7 inches would make the Raptor as wide as an H1. I've sat in an H1, and it is the widest thing I've sat in. I could barely touch the passenger seat from the drivers seat. It is wide enough to seat 4 across. It would be crazy if the Raptor was that wide, but I've seen some in parking lots, and they didn't seem that wide.

Thanks.

It's the tires and fenders, not the cab.

pretty much. I thought, why else would Ford say it was 7 inches wider than a normal, if it wasn't? I wouldn't brag about bigger fenders. Its misleading.

Yea, but the bragging is what's under the fenders. 35" tires and long travel suspension that works real well. You have a point though, the extra width is not your friend in a lot of spots and isn't a "selling point" imo.

The width is a selling point. Get behind one at 100mph on the sand and turn sharp. You'll be glad you have those extra 7". Its not just the fenders but the actual footprint of the vehicle is larger also.

That's also the reason the Raptor has all the extra marker lights on it. They aren't just there for looks, they are actually required by law because of the width.

To achieve the long travel suspension, they had to use longer arms. GThe longer arms make the truck wider, so they had to bulge the fenders to cover the wider suspension and tires. That width is what makes the desert performance possible. Most any desert runner truck will be considerably wider than stock for the same reasons.
