What about going through drive throughs?


I also went from a Yukon XL to the Raptor. It's really no big deal, you quickly get used to the size of it. As others have mentioned, some parking spaces will simply be too tight, but I've just learned to park further away so I can take two spots if need be (if the lot isn't packed).

The 360 camera makes parking a piece of cake.

Agreed. The 360 Camera is very helpful. I fit through everything I use to in my 07 F150 but am too scared to use a carwash. It grows on you. I text and drive a lot so I find myself crossing into other lanes but that's not the trucks fault.

78" or so... Someone here has an exact answer I know... I had the same concerns with putting a 1.5" RPG and 37's on.

I have 35's and the 1.5" Collars and i have 6 inches or so to spare.

You will get used to it. Use the 360 deg camera in tight spots like drive throughs.

I'll be going from a Ford Escape to a 2018 Raptor. I know it'll take some getting used to but I want the truck enough to not care.

Really cant beat this truck for distracted driving. Turn on the lane assist and the adaptive cruise control. Is dam near like setting the auto pilot in the plane
Love it when the red lights on the dash start flashing and sending a warning. You really dont need to look up, just hit the brakes quick.
