Well it was a long day on this one, but still was a pleasure to do! I took these pictures with a new camera, but I'm not happy with it at all. I'm going back to my old one.... Anyway this thing was so big that myself and a buddy of mine ended up cutting 2 inches out of my awning so I could do it in the garage. Now I don't have to worry about anything just squeezing in there anymore. Here are the pics.

I like the Raptors, but as mentioned, I would be afraid of breaking any Ford with a Frame under it.. They just dont build em like they used to..

Nice detail job!

While I am not a real fan of the Raptor, I can appreciate it for what it's worth to other enthusiasts.

What did you use on the black plastic body molding? I'm always looking to try new products.

I used ultima trim guard plus. It's kinda expensive, but it lasts a long time and is really good.

It's just too bad that their frames can't handle the hype that FORD claims they can... :no:
Click HERE for more info... :wink:

Running at close to 100mph into a straight one foot vertical curb isn't exactly typical to Ford's "claimed" use. You beat on it like anything else and it'll break, but it'll take a lot more than a standard half ton from Ford or anyone else. The fact that this is VERY OLD news and that despite a recession and high fuel prices that they continue to fly off the lot without substantial changes after Ford investigated this situation is a pretty good indicator on how relevant these complaints actually are.

Great work on the detailing, just wish I was closer.
