    Not sure that will work for you Jake since it looks like real carbon fiber weave, not that fake sticker shit you put all over your truck.

    WHAT
    UTTER
    BULLSHIT

    I've pulled all three sizes of U-Haul trailer on 2,000 mile trips from Alabama to Nevada and didn't come close to the bump stops.

    I carry half-ton loads of pellets 25 miles across a ridge 4 to 6 times a year and don't ride the bump stops.

    That's on a GEN1. I don't know anything about GEN2s except what I read here, so I'll have to take your word for it.

    $2,500 of hard-earned cash for BLING?
    Lunacy.

    I don't see the drive mode selector on that second steering wheel. That's enough for a veto in and of itself. Also, I'm not sure how you can even tell that coated carbon fiber is legitimate, especially with so much Chinese bullshit floating around everywhere.

    payload is rated at 1200 lbs. max - that's almost half of all other F150's.

    You're totally right. An off-road suspension doesn't compromise payload and towing in the least. Ford is actually thinking of discontinuing the F-250 line because the Raptor is as much work truck as anyone needs. Just ask Sasquatch, he knows all the inside information on Ford.

    Sasquatch and you appear to think that you're experts on EcoBoost vehicles.

    As I've made quite clear, my load-carrying and hauling experience is with the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 fire-breathing GEN1 Raptor.
    Perhaps you've heard of them.

    Jaz and Satchsquish appear to be brothers.

    Yeah, I see them periodically. But it is hard to get a good look because they disappear in my rearview mirror so quickly.

    Ah, street racing.
    If you wanted a work truck, why didn't you buy and F-250?
    And if you're into street racing, then why are you bitching about work?

    Oh, never mind.
