There is no way I'd use a brand new $40,000+ vehicle to "off-road" in.

It's simple. You offroad in it, it breaks, the dealership pays for any drivetrain repairs that weren't from obvious abuse.

I was with my buddy in his BRAND NEW (as in right off the dealer lot) 2004 Jeep Wrangler when we snapped a rear axle in two seperate pieces. He got it fixed free. 2 weeks later he blew the engine, fixed for free. About a month later he snapped the front axle completely in two, they fixed it for free, voided his future warranty, and called him an idiot. lol

The Raptor, while clearly expensive, isn't out fo the price range of other trims for the f150. I priced out a crewcab FX4 with a 5.5 bed, equiped it as close to the Raptor As I could and it came in at $4500 less than the Raptor at MSRP. It would take a lot more than $4500 to get an FX4 to the capabilities of a Raptor.

i'd take an ext cab over a crew. it just looks too long for it's intended purpose. i've priced them and there is no way it's happening right now.

I like it. Id buy a raptor and then you can add a few essentials. but it really doesn't need much,. maybe more power?

I am like Ryan though. Id rather have a 6.7
