Default Extended warranty and snow performance...

Also I live in a four season mountain climate and we get fair amounts of snow. Any first hand experience with the raptor in snow?

I got the extended warranty and maintenance plan too, because like neveo, i too plan on keeping this truck, FOREVER....and i too cannot wait for the snow season, i just bought mine in July and I'm an avid snowboarder, so my Raptor is going to see a lot of snow.

The Raptor is a factory desert pre-runner that loves the snow.

The extended warranty and maintence packages in my opinion are worth it.

The raptors a snow cat in its second life. We had no problem with the snow in OK when we got over 2ft of it. Drove all over the place but make sure to take a secondary air filter. They do suck snow into the air box when it gets deep.

Only when you are using the skid plate as a snowplow... Lol

They don't know what a snow plow is in OK so I had to bring a little KS to the state and help them out. But It is from the driverside tire kicking powder to the intake of the stock air box.

+1 for the Raptor being a beast in the snow. During the first blizzard i tried to break it sideways in 4WD in a parking lot and i couldn't. it just honked along.

This thing is awesome in the snow, but so is any 4x4 vehicle, really... But yeah, it does real well.

I bought the 7/100,000 Ford ESP warranty with mine.
