Default i got my raptor!!
ordered in early october. moved to california this fall and it came in to the dealership last week in north dakota. finally got it down to CA this week so i have about 2300 miles on it so far in only a few days. VERY VERY PLEASED!! this truck exceeded my expectations by a long shot! the ride, how comfortable it is, the sync system, the sound, LOVE the in dash LCD screen, the looks and all the compliments i have gotten, and oh yeah THE POWER!! this things tears ASS!! i could not be more happy with it.

i havent had much of a chance to get off the pavement but that will change as soon as i move home.

i hope to have some pics up as soon as i find my camera. just completed some mods that i can almost guarantee have never been on a raptor before!!!

-2011 super cab
-raptor plus pkg (rearview cam, trailer brakes)
-white with the graphics
-rhino liner
-volant CAi in the near future

That's badass! Most people would just settle for some basic sedan that's easy to get in and out of. I commend you!

Congrats on the truck. I know you've had a long wait.

x2. Congrats Nodak. That's really cool that you're not letting your back injury limit you. Offroading with the hand controls sounds fun!

I was in a really bad car wreck when I was a kid, and after 2 body-casts and traction, I was in a wheelchair for several months. It's much more difficult than most people realize. That's awesome that you're not letting it keep you from Raptoring!

yeah i was in a car wreck and yeah screw those cars/sedans/anything thats not a pickup. it would have taken alot more to keep me from “raptoring” haha. hand controls are pretty easy to use. gas and break are all on one lever and i have a suicide knob so steering is easy with one hand.

The gas/brake combo lever sounds like it would actually be fun to drive with.
I'd like to see how that works. It seems like it would feel almost like you are a pilot.
