Aftermarket Raptor

I understand that this is a brand new era of wheelin' for Ford, but what're the most popular aftermarket items at the time? I mean it has one beefy engine, a sick looking exhaust system from what I've seen, some nice tires, and Rims, as well as a superb interior... What's there left to replace?

I doubt it... From what I've heard the springs they already use are top of the line, your pretty pennies...

My personal issue is to add fog lights. Checking on the Raptor Forumz, there are some methods of adding lights but most require a light bar of some sort. Otherwise, I have "Raptorously" happy with the way the truck is stock.

A few things:

A winch.

Aftermarket tires or rims.

One guy put a topper on it, then took it off.

Extra lights on a bull bar (it has factory add on switches)

Weathertech floor mats for mud or snow.

And here's the biggie, mud flaps. The front tires coat the sides of the truck badly. It's cool looking the first time, then it gets really really old.

Not much else!!!

Nice Hadn't even thought of any of that! Is there any room under the hood for a turbokit or supercharger?

+1 on the mudflaps. Sticking your hand in roadspray all over the door handle is no fun.

Huck, did you find a good solution? I saw one solution using the Vector mudflaps on svtoffroad.com.

Hobo is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Bullbar or Prerunner tube bumper with some real lighting. Preferably something both strong and light in weight so as not to mess up the damping of the front shocks and ride height.

No go on the winch, too much weight up front.

Supercharger for some extra gratuitous power and sound.

Haven't seen the bottom of the truck, but some additional skid plates and rock sliders might be in order as well.

The Vectors are awesome. They keep the truck very clean! Easy to install, cheap, and look like Ford thought 'em up. (and they should've)

Do you have an install written up and / or some pics post install? Which size did you select front and rear?

I definately have every intention of getting one of these when I'm home from UTI! Been doing so much research on them, these things are built to the T. All your talk of upgrades, it's tough finding something to put on them, turbo/supercharging it is great... otherwise look at the link, it's the SVT Raptor website and their videos explain almost everything!

The 2010 F-150 SVT Raptor | The official site of the Ford F-150 | FordVehicles.com

Ford Special Vehicles Team did it right with the Raptor for sure

I bought their "C" size, the largest ones. All you do is place them where the top outside edge blends smoothly with the fender flares and the top edge of the first vent butts up against the bottom of the flare and level it out.

I had to remove the rear tires.

By the way, those suckers (the tires/wheels) are freakin' HEAVY!

You can see them installed on the raptorforumz, quite a few folks are putting them on. I didn't take any because they look just like everyone else who's installed 'em.

True about the suspension, but get a leveling kit, there are pics here to show what it looks like side by side with and with out,
