I was talking bout the whole thing.. No new trucks look any good or are worth the ridiculous amount they are charging.

Checked one out at eh local Ford dealer today, If I were in the market at the moment, I would consider it. If I still lived in the desert, I would own it w/o question. Another great looking Full Size American truck.

To bad the rest of the world has to drive ugly little pieces of shit.

GOD I love living in the good ol' USA!

I'll be honest, I could have used a truck with that kind of suspension around here with that frigid cold snap last winter (Below 0* for nearly a weeks straight ) Almost would have made sticking ZJ front coils and airing up the rear shocks on my XJ worth while just trying to drive speed limit on some local roads

they only get 11 inches of travel! thats like a mid travel setup on my taco!!!

heck a long travel tacoma with a camburg kit and 4x4 will pull 13 and be able to fit in the woods

i need to get back on the raptor forum and tell them that the truxxxx 2" top load spacer lift they are making will probally destroy there factory suspention unless designed right.... but it wasnt on the tacom so i doubt it will be on the raptor!

cool idea non the less!
