    Default GM guy drooling over a Ford....

    Went to the Missouri state fair yesterday. Ford had a really nice display of their new products. I love to off-road and have read many articles about the Ford F-150 Raptor. I personally own a 4 door JK Wrangler to get the job done along with a long list of mods to make it more off-road capable. The Ford Raptor has it all. 35in tires w factory bead lock wheels, front mounted camera for view of obstacles, flared fenders, and Fox reservoir shocks all standard. It's powered by a 6.2L V8 to boot. The only extra I would spend would be on a Warn winch. Now the downside. This truck that screams "I am all that is man" stickers for over 45K.

    What's caught your eye? You know I'm gonna try to get you in a new body style Sierra. LOL! The one in your avatar pic still looks great BTW.

    I love the Raptors looks but wish it had the Eco Boost and a better payload and tow rating. I think its only 800# and 6000#

    I love the new 2014 Sierra. Really looking at a Duramax next truck, but the easier serviceability of the Cummins has me thinking of pricing a Ram too.

    I figure 3 more years will put me over 400,000 kms/250,000 miles. Thanks for the compliment.

    If i don't get a diesel, a 4wd 5.3DI Maxx trailer crew cab SLT it will be.
    Thanks,

    Will

    SVT is all about performance. The Raptor was built to be an off-road performer. Not a work truck. It appeals to a small market... Especially with that price tag. LOL!!

    The Raptor looks like a Bad Boy. I'll bet it would be fun to drive, off road.
