So, ecoboost mid travel fx4...

Not an raptor. Regardless of all the raptor parts. Its still not a rap.

Such a waste of money to.

I'd take that truck over a "real" raptor any day.

I wouldn't. Its got am ecoboost.... 37's and 4.10 gears.... That thing would be a dog compared to a real raptor. Not to mention it doesn't have any of the benefits of being a real raptor aside from the suspension.

For the same price you can get a real one and destroy this clone offroad.

It is a noble concept though. It seems like he wanted it to be a mall crawler. Nothing about a raptor is fuel efficient. The sticker says estimated 13mpg combined on a new one with a 6.2

Raptors are overrated, but if I had to choose, I'd take this one for sure.

Lol. They're not over rated. You folks obviously aren't involved in then raptor community. Or you would realize they are quite amazing for a factory truck.

Sure, a lot of them are sadly in street queens. I can't argue that. But the ones that do get used get used hard and are quite capable.

Haters gonna hate. And I highly doubt it actually gets 16 mpg. Straight highway at 55 mph maybe, but so will the 6.2.

They're fine for light offroading, but they are not the trophy trucks everyone claims they are.

I've driven one and know a guy who owns one he agreed it wasn't worth the price tag.

I highly doubt anyone in a 6.2 is getting Ecoboost mileage.
