Amazing offering for a factory vehicle... I can only think of what could be done with just some minor suspension mods to go from just over 11 inches of travel to....? I didn't think an OEM would EVER offer a type of vehicle designed to be jumped... a crazy thought by any mfr!!! 35" tires... FACTORY!??


We'll see when they come out... but my guess is they will sell well.

Because Ford hasn't been profitable for years until recently. They shouldn't have survived with billions of dollars of losses to their banks. They make mediocre vehicles above market value and somehow fool people into thinking they own a piece of American history by being loyal to their brand. Worst of all, they condone the eating of babies, they have been documented urinating on the Holy Bible, they think red M&Ms taste better than the others, they supported BETA in the BETA vs. VHS battle, and they hate apple pie and the star & stripes.

Well, SVT never got completely killed. The engine in the Shelby GT500 is produced by SVT and has the badge in the engine bay. If you read all the posts on DR, people are split. Some people aren't impressed, but I think that's dumb. Highly tuned shocks (the rears have internal bypasses), extended control arms 35" tires, and "offroad mode" to name a few things. I think with air bumps rather than poly bumps on it, you could probably squeeze another inch worth of travel in the front. I think it's fair to say that nothing has ever come out of a factory that is as capable as the Raptor is. That's the same thing SVT did with the second generation Lightning. It owned the performance truck market while it was being produced. I think it would make a great DD and occasional toy, or a perfect tow rig for a race truck. Especially when the 6.2L engine come out.

Maybe the CV is designed for the angles!

I don't play in the desert or go fast, so this isn't something I'm personally interested in... but the IDEA that an OEM would develop a specialty vehicle to this degree... gives me some hope that a solid axle crawler niche vehicle may not be that much of a fantasy... I don't have any expectations... but I'm certainly impressed with them sticking their neck out on this one...especially at this time.

Welllllll..There's not a body on it in that pic so I doubt it sits like that under normal conditions..But if it does there are Cv's designed for those angles.

you know what ide like to see??

once someone breaks it and brings it in for warrenty repairs, i wanna see the dealers reaction for that, bc off road vehicles break, its just what we do, build em, break em, fix em, repair em, race em....

in this case its buy it, race it, break it, and your fucked

i bought the off road package for my taco... it has off road in the name, and toyota said my 07s warrenty was voided bc i off roaded it... isnt that why i bought the off road package? or was it just for the preatty decals?

ide like to see what fords gonna say when so many ppl break it and they loose money on warrenty repairs (if they warrenty it)

No mention of 4wd, so it must be 2wd. If it was a mid-travel 4wd, I would have to think about . . . possibly . . . maybe . . . purchasing the first Ford I've ever had.

Precedence has already been set with Mitsubishi. They were offering memberships to the SCCA with a purchase of an EVO but if you participated in any of the SCCA sanctioned events (like autocrossing) and had a problem, they came back and stated "participation in compettitve motorsports" voided the warranty.

They're no longer offering the SCCA membership and I don't know if they've fixed any of the owners claims.

X2 I wish that I had bought a base Tacoma instead of my Offroad package. I ripped off almost everything that came with the upgraded package. Tires/wheels/suspension/color matched bumpers/fog lights etc. What a waste of money.
