True, but the superduty is too big of a truck to be a "raptor" Its too long, solid axles cant turn worth a crap and is top heavy.

All that is is lifted with some fiberglass fenders.
You can actually pull your bedsides out to get that pre-runner/ trophy truck look. But idk why you would on a 250 or 350

No, it has a roof rack too. Makes it look like a chase truck. It would make a good chase truck for a Raptor

Ah i didnt catch the roof rack.

And youre probably right, its most likely a chase truck/ tow rig for some sort of pre-runner/ trophy truck/ baja racer

Or just a good lookin' truck. Most guys don't lift their truck and do all of that stuff to it for anything other than aesthetics.

See I like mine campable. So im building a yj and just swapping in ford parts.
It comes stock with great approach angles & a great turning radius.
I've already swapped an 8.8 into the rear end and the engine is out and I have a 302 that i've started talking apart. Now I need to figure out transmission.

I hope it doesn't function like a raptor. Last thing I need is my bed to sag alignment to be off and, Ford telling me to go F off after paying $50k

I was thinking about doing this to my truck. Same color to huh. Well 08 conversion it is, but to be fair to the raptor wanabe he is missing the grill and grill lights

The whole point of a raptor or any real race rig is low cog. That thing is huge. A stock height superduty with the pre runner trimmings and triple bypasses is about the closest thing that would work. And if its leaf sprung in the front forget that idea!

actually, there are lots of websites about converting a 2WD super duty to pre-runner duty. all you need is a I beam relocation and much longer beams. you would be surprised how far a locker can get you in the desert.
after all, thats what the mexicans drive all over the place through the desert.
