    Got to take the Raptor out on the beach for the day(first time off-road since purchasing last month). My word does it do so much better than our old F-150. I know driving in some sand isn't really a challenge, but it was fun. I wished there wasn't as many folks there that day as I'd have liked to taken it a bit faster. I left it in Baja mode.

    Anyways, here's a video.

    Ha! I had my straps handy to help folks out if they need it, but didn't see anyone stuck. The last time I went, with our old truck there was atleast 1 Jeep stuck.
