Yup

For a mere $130k and you can't drive it on the road. It is super cool though!!!

Yes, the intent is you fork over $100k, and line up at the Baja or Dakar rally as it is.

Pretty cool that they are willing to sell them though, and if you have built a truck close to those specs you are looking at at least double that in terms of cost!

With the increasing interest in diesels I wouldnt be surprised if they did! HAs anyone heard about Roush coming out with any diesel products? (probably too much legal/warranty sht stopping them)

Ummm nope, all that weight and wheelbase tips over too easily. Was thinking more in terms of 1/4 mile drag truck with Shelby or Roush.

Oh no. Don't tell carpenter547
Maybe the price tag will keep it out of the hands of people like us, unlike the normal Raptor.
Sorry couldn't resist.


That is pretty awesome that Ford's doing stuff like this.
