    Lots of name-calling on this forum. I'm assuming most of us are here because we're Raptor enthusiasts.

    Anyway, last night I was reading the Raptor Supplement that comes with the owner's manual. Have any of you guys read it? It speaks specifically about how the Raptor is very good off-road, but what it "truly excels at is driving off-road at high speed." To me, that indicates the truck is designed to be fast. Nowhere in the F-150 manual (which also comes with a Raptor) does it mention driving fast as a positive, normal thing.

    I just want to emphasize how much I like this truck. Yesterday, I got my 7500lb tractor stuck in soft mud along the edge of a reservoir. My other, smaller tractor was unable to pull it out. So I jumped in the Raptor and tried with that. It was not able to pull the tractor out either, but what impressed me the most was how the Raptor was able to actually *get* to the area where the tractor was stuck. I've been able to pull my tractor out with my diesel dually in the past, but the dually would have never made it.

    Great truck. The exhaust sound isn't great, except when its pulling hard...but it sure is quick and fun to drive.

    How did you end up getting the tractor out?

    I mean...you don't need high HP to drive off-road at high speeds, but I get your logic.

    As for the regular F-150 they usually advertise stuff like "best in class HP/TQ" and stuff like that, but there's no need to put it in the owners manual because it's not important. The Raptor gets it because it needs a special manual. If they re-made a lightning or something of that sort you might get a manual that talks about doing Ricky Bobby things.
