The idea is to prevent people from crossing the border. Not entice them! (to get caught, so they can get a ride in a Raptor).

I'm really surprised Ford didn't build a special service (SSV) package of the Raptor... all the cool suspension and 4WD goodies, without the expensive extra features that aren't needed. I bet they could make a mint selling such a vehicle to law enforcement, fire, and utility companies.

This is a great idea. Let the trucks actually do what they are designed for, instead of sitting in some pavement pounders garage, because "it looks good".

I like the whole idea of a Raptor XL model ( just add basic features, power locks and windows...) having a rugged interrior you can probably see more of these being put to what they are actually meant to do instead of cruising on the express way
