I hope the OP pays the truck off in no time and enjoys the hell out of the truck. I think the problem lies in that a large amount of people don't think this is a great idea financially. Now you might say well its not their problem they don't have to pay back the money. Well if you look at the current recession we're in and that its caused by people making terrible financial decisions (AKA not being able to pay the home loan they agree'd to) and now the masses are paying for it. Its just a touchy subject at this time. JMHO

That's true. I think there is a HUGE difference in buying a cuople Cadillac's, having 5 kids, a $750,000 home, a boat and a dog with a single income and having a $50,000 truck when I'm saving tons of money. I agree, people are making bad decisions, but as I explained kindly, I waited and waited and waited until I found the right deal and I was in the right spot to get one and I was there, it was there and it happened.

AHMEN Brother! I explained because many people on this site know me, I've met many of them. As I said in my other post, a lot of the new people and even "now-old-school" members are still newbie's compared to some of us old-timers...you know, the Gen-EDGE/Jason peeps .

The truck is yours and I'm glad you're happy. I'm just stating why I thought some people might be sensitive to the subject. I personally could care less as long as we don't end up with a car loan bailout program headed by the Feds.

If the govt ever did that, I'd toss my badge on the ground, walk out of my federal compound, buy a ticket to Japan and live my dream owning a pizza shop on the beach that specialized in pizza and beer. Free beer when it rained.

There is talk of the "October Surprise" possibly being that mortgages held by Fannie May and Freddie Mac might be forgiven. If that happens anything will be possible. Thats enough about politics I'm going to go back to cleaning my M14.

your right my uneducatded-ness must have made me miss where the bed cage is that those legit shocks bolt too, with those gigantic totally longer then stock shackles for supreme downtravel, with limiting straps because it travels so long, not to mention those sicky gnargnar longtravel lift blocks, also didnt see the f150 upper arms and ball joint holding the truely overbuilt spindles inplace with the "coilover" connected to the cast aluminum lca's. maybe i should go reread how to build a desert truck because i thought beds are for banging not prerunning

I Bet anything, that before August of 2011 he will have a thread entitled: "SOLD THE RAPTOR. If someone talks about going into debt, then goes $43,000 into debt, He doesn't have any money. Matt, anyone with any substantial amount of money, NEVER uses the word "Debt" when questioning wether they should purchase something.
Well, here it is ...August 2011. Machine090767, you must be a psychic. I sold the Raptor. Guess what I got instead?

ANOTHER RAPTOR. THIS TIME, A 2011 SUPERCREW. IT'S SILVER. AND IT'S EVEN MORE BADASS THAN THE OTHER ONE.

I have a Corsa cat-back exhaust, AIRAID cold air intake and a tune by Livernois Motorsports. Oh, I also bought a house. The house has a pool, tile floors and is 1 mile from the beach in sunny Florida.

Anyone can do what I do. Just make smart decisions.

Here's your thread about me selling the Raptor. You're correct. ...and to all the others who talked **** -- I don't care about you all and I think that this thread is hilarious!

Here is my new one from a magazine photo-shoot for Truckin' Magazine. Yeah, that's right. This truck is in a magazine as well. BOTH Raptors are article trucks. Beat that ****.

Hope you don't bend the frame like others have

Yeah! This one isn't getting off-roaded the the point that even my old one did, which wasn't a tenth as hard as what those guys were pressing.

Damn, he beat me to the frame bend comment. I hear that i'll be seeing a wave of these at work in a month or two, i guess they are looking into it? we're not all that sure yet.
Looks like your living the life, I've driven one of these for a day before, they're sweet trucks. I'd rather have the Orange tho.

Nice and congrats. I'm not a fan of screws, to me it's too long of a truck and it takes away from the desert racer and makes it more of a soccer dad vehicle.

This wasn't a hate on you post or jealousy (if I could buy on I would). More of a wish you kept the old one over this one.
