Neither truck nor Jeep touched dirt. Posted a pic of it in the lifted trucks thread way back.

They're rampant around here too. Granted, this IS Montucky, but still! The fact that they can't drive them doesn't help their cause either...

I am not making this up. Seriously. I pulled up at a light next to one of these idiots the other night, and he started revving the engine. When the light turned, I decided what the **** why not?? Long story short, he dropped the clutch on his start and used the next three blocks to catch up to me. In my 1994 straight 6 beat-to-hell factory geared 31" rubber-ed Jeep...

My friend was giggling for the next hour haha

I don't think it's the vehicles, it's the attitudes that are associated with them and the stereotypes that are only further perpetuated by the image they're going for. Sure, it's profiling, but it's often extremely accurate.

I'm guessing you guys haven't seen the current "hella flush" pandemic that's been running around?

I despise these cars more than I do bro trucks

I won't flame ya. I love the way the truck itself looks (color+body style). The lift is way excessive. If it sat about where the one you posted sat, I'd rock it too. But if you're going to have mud tires and coilovers on a truck it better hit some kind of trail. I'd take it through some of the trails at Uwharrie. Otherwise I'd leave it stock w A/T's. I'd even keep the fogs if I ran out in the boonies a lot at night (which I do). But pencil beams or driving beams would probably be better there.

A raptor is basically purpose built and is boss from the factory. I have yet to see one lifted 12 inches on 40s.

I like the 250 and 350's more than the Raptors.

Sorry, I like the way they look more than the raptors. Never been a fan of the F-150, in any year. Always liked 250 and 350 body styles.

At least that's purpose-built for its environment (Iceland.) Reminds me of the Toyota HiLux that Top Gear used to drive to the North Pole and up an active volcano.

I don't really understand why someone would pay all that money for a Raptor.... just to undo all the work SVT did.
