Popcorn Resurection!! Bringing a totaled Raptor back from the dead!
I start this thread with a little background on myself:
Having been a gearhead from birth I loved tinkering with cars. My Dad was a mechanic and always had some type of build going on in the garage. Weather shoehorning a small block in a toyota truck or doing a full resto mod on a '46 Hudson...there was always something going on!

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree!! From Mustangs to F150s and a few Harleys. I have done a build or two (or 20) myself...but nothing quite this big!

Having wanted a Raptor for years but unable to even consider one, I ran across a total in my budget and pulled the trigger...in hindsite she was hit waaaayyy harder than expected, but I am too far into it to turn back...

Here is the build...ENJOY!!
just Mike, BRAAAPTR and Micha like this.

Good luck. If there's no frame damage she might not be to bad.

Bad news / Good news...

Bad news = need a frame

Good news = she'll drive like she rolled off the showroom floor
