Default New to me 2010 Raptor
Like so many, I've watched with envy for years as Raptors have passed in traffic or I've spotted one in a parking lot. New (and used) have always been out of my price range. Finally, "want" won out over logic and budget!

I just bought a white 2010 extra cab with 75k miles on it from a guy in LA. It's in great condition for a six year old truck. Add-on's, mods and changes are allready in the works:

* Added 18" Method NV's with 325/65-18 Nitto Terra Grappler G2's
* Added the '6.2L' badges to the lower doors (2010's did not have...)
* Applied Hurculiner to rear wheel wells (DIY - turned out great)
* Had all four shocks rebuilt at DC Shock Svcs in LA (they do GREAT work)
* In the body shop right now getting front skid plate and silver portion of
bumper painted same color as bumper/ grill..
* Lucas synthetic in rear differential w/ new Mag-Hytec cover

MANY more items on the list (flush trans and radiator, all new hoses, new spark plugs (dealer), service front diff and t-case....). Also, have a set of the cnc center caps for Method wheels on order from Vince here on the forum - can't wait for those!

I am kind of a maintenance nut and truly enjoy doing as much of the work as I can. Have been lurking here for some time, trying to soak up the years of knowledge from all of you.

I know, if no pictures, it did not happen... I'll post some as soon as I get it out of the shop and figure out how!

Thanks to all for the information and advice - my buying decision was the better for it.
