The letters FORD should be on the same curve as the outer shell

I agree with this... would like to see it done on a truck. It's nice to see some different options out there though!

The actual Raptor grill has a kind of mesh upper and lower, and the letters are flush with it. I think something closer to the original might look OK, but this one doesn't cut it IMO.

rangers are to narrow to make it look good imo.
i just absolutely hate trying to make one vehicle look like another.
no matter what it is, a honda that looks like a ferrari is retarded, and a ranger that looks like a raptor is retarded.

just my opinion, ignore it, or embrace it.

I agree with that completely but certain style points can be taken to one vehicle to another. Hardly anything is completly original. If its done with taste its OK in my opinion.

i think thats a better design the first style, although it seems like it's been hacked together.

That looks a lot better. It is not out of proportion, looks better in black.
