Nice looking ride. I have never seen a Shelby Raptor before

Thanks a bunch. I think we will really enjoy it. I think its the best ridding truck Ford has ever built. Will easily outride any F150.

Yeah they ride nice, I test drove one when I bought my 2011 Harley Davidson F 150, I really wanted it, but...... They ride better than any truck I've driven actually.

I have quite a bit of fun with my hauler, and I'll keep my 1,000 + ft pounds of torque for now

How about Carli Suspension on a Super Duty?? Best of both worlds! You get the pulling power of a diesel, better mileage on the highway (I get 22mpg on 35s) and it can handle the same high speed off road that a Raptor can

You are absolutely correct Brett, these trucks are a blast to drive when they've been tuned

KSCRUDE, that is a fine looking truck. I know you gotta be pleased even with the wait. What a hot ride. I bought a 14 Raptor with all graphics in the ox white. I looked at a black but the white was my pick. But let me say if I was going to get a black truck it would be exactly like that. Gotta luv it. Congrats.

Walked around this bad boy this weekend. Looks really nice!!! Didn't think $52,845 was that bad. Seems to have all the toys on it.

I say, I say, boooooooyyyyy! (in the best foghorn leghorn voice )

If not Raptor, buy the superduty for towing...
do NOT get the 250, go for the 350 with the max gvwr you can get,
because rarely do you tow less and less each year
