    There are deals out there for sure. I got lucky and found one right in my home area after having all the other dealers say sticker (a few were still thinking they could get 5K over sticker). I thought this would have been bait to get me to call and then all the incentives I don't qualify for (vet loyalty etc) would fall off the discount and its back to sticker, but they honoured the price online to the penny, gave me a great trade price and handled the deal over the phone so all I had to do was show up, drive it, and sign.

    Coggin Jacksonville (where I bought)
    Gary yeomans daytona (not easy to deal with, but at the end caved)
    Ford of Pt. Ritchey
    Weikert Ford

    Nobody wants to play ball until you get an offer in writing from one of them. Then they all scramble to match or beat. Yeomans originally told me they dont sell Raptors under msrp, especially on a 19. As I was driving to pick mine up they were begging me to come in and said they would beat other offers and they knew I had an offers for $4500 off and 4775 off.

    Gainsville also offered $3000 off with a simple phone call.

    Great and very useful information especially for the FL members! I bet Tommy Shelly thinks twice before lying and playing games with customers. I wonder if his communication has improved since this thread? LOL

    I live close to Brandon Ford. Many years ago I was looking at a car there and noticed they tacked on $1,700 for pinstriping, dealer prep, etc.
    I told the guy I'm not paying for any of that. The attitude at the place was horrible. I bought my Raptor at Gator Ford nearby, but did some heavy negotiations.

    Anyway, I wanted to mention to any prospective buyers, that Brandon Ford now has 46 Raptors in stock. Three of them are 2018's. They probably have so many because of their horrible salesmanship. However, if you go in with FIRM price and do some heavy negotiation, they would probably meet your price. They advertise the Raptors must go in 40 days.

    If anyone sees one they're interested in, I can go take a look and give you some pictures. And if you do find one in my area, I'm willing to drive it to your house for expenses. (I'm retired and looking for an excuse to drive cross country, especially to Yellowstone or California).
