When the chance came around to review the Ford Raptor, expectations were already high because of the hype train. But after a grounded real-world experience with the truck, things changed. We have reviewed most of the half-ton options like the Tundra, Silverado and driven the RAM off road and found modern trucks have become quite serious in terms of interior space and quality. All that means is the Raptor has some proving to do. This is not a casual short review, be prepared for a deep dive on the Raptor including pros and cons.

      As a raptor owner I am choosing to leave the running boards on. Cheaper to replace those than pay for body work when a rock punches a hole in the aluminum body. Either way if someone wanted to rock crawl they would get a wrangler, my baby loves the dirt and mud at high speed :)

      Fun fact, those Raptor decals along with the carbon fiber trim are options that total almost $3,000

      Sounds about right. Someone like that would need a lot of adjustment.
      Probably.

      Now this is a proper off roader.. In my personal opinion, no maker in the world beats Ford in this matter.

      As a Ford F150 owner I of course aspire to own this vehicle. Thank you Savage for your in depth details that you cant get anywhere else. Mark you are the best YouTube reviewer bar none. Turboski rubbed me the wrong way due to his propensity for Chevy but he is growing on me, lol. I have been watching all your reviews lately.

      Any vehicle that cost $70,000 (wow!) will be used by most drivers as a glorified car not as a real truck. You do not want to damage or scratch $70,000 worth of truck. It's like using a Rolex watch while working on your own car.
