I was brought to this forum from an Officer in my hometown of Glendora. He pulled me over for my window tint, and after pulling me over he started asking about my truck. We eventually started talking and he asked if I was a member of the Ford Raptor Forum and I said no. He didn't write me a ticket, but told me it was a must for me to join. So here I am now.
How I came to Buying my Raptor:
My first car was a 2005 Ford Roush Mustang (non supercharged just Roush appearance and handling) in torch red with long tube headers that I bought in 2012. After owning that car it became harder to use the family truck, which meant it was also harder to do my outdoor activities which included dirt bike riding, mountain biking, camping, etc. Now the tough part for me was getting rid of my muscle car for a truck, but the Raptor solved that problem quickly. Before buying a Raptor I knew I wanted a Ford product and a Roush product again, and I also wanted it in Red with a V8. In 2018, I decided to look for a used Gen 1 raptor with those requirements, and after searching the internet for some time I came across this truck. A 2013 Ford Raptor with the Roush Supercharger Package, 1 owner, low miles, and in torch red. I instantly new I had to have this truck, and after talking with the original owner we agreed on a price and he even was willing to hold it for me until my mustang sold. I traveled about 5 hours to pick up the truck and only saw a few pictures of the truck before I went up. When I saw it in the drive way the original owner had it professional detailed, and you could tell he babied this truck. The original owner had a brand new 2018 raptor, but still barely wanted to sell this one until he saw how serious I was. I bought the truck that day in late February of 2019. I can say now that this truck as met all my exceptions and then some.
How I plan to interact on this forum:
I will be asking questions, as I have little to no knowledge about off roading in a vehicle, and I defiantly plan to use this Raptor for what it is intended for. I also do what to do some tasteful modifications (rims, tires, lighting, etc), but keep the truck pretty simple since it will be a daily for right now. I eventually plan to help people as well and help people with problems that I may be overcoming being a new Raptor owner.
