Try 55 fully loaded. 45 base model.
That gets you leather interior, power everything, moonroof, nav, heated seats, etc etc.
You cannot build a raptor equivalent truck. It's not possible. Even with 100,000.
Raptors have things no other F150's have.
Offroad mode, hill decent, etc etc.
Sure I may not own one, but I'm on a raptor forum and have been since before they came out. I know more about raptors than I do about rangers.
You do realize raptors are not even long travel right..? Not to mention the rear leafs are no different than an fx4 and the shocks are mounted in normal location.. You can and plenty of people do build trucks that will absolutely blow a raptor outta the water.. Hell my truck will beat a raptor in dirt..

With 100k you can almost build a trophy truck

Guys guys. It's alright raptors are nice and prerunner/ long travel trucks are nice too. Both are able to see action which quite frankly long travel trucks may be able to take a bit more abuse compared to a raptor. But honestly who cares. Let's just enjoy this build thread instead of talking on a completely different subject. Blk I love the rig man. Keep it up

Let me know what your thinking for the new plan of attack on the bumper in case we need different/more material. Deavers will be mid/late next week.

That is pretty sweet. Are you gonna add a lower bar to give you alittle protection in the event of a rear end collision?

This truck is really coming along. It looks beastly. Love the rear bumper. How you like the grabbers?

I like it but I think a bar on the bottom sort of like this would bring it together nicely.
