Hey everyone! I've been stalking the forums for the last few months while awaiting delivery, and I'm thrilled to say she arrived at Coggin Ford in Jacksonville yesterday! Other than some scuffs on the bottom of the steering wheel trim which Ford has documented and will replace, the truck looks to be in great shape from the factory.

2022 Agate Black w/ the following options:
801A Package
Moonroof & Tailgate Package
Pro Power Onboard
Spray-In Bedliner

I haven't had a ton of time to play yet, but I'm already in love with the truck! Ride quality is great, and that trombone exhaust is just aggressive enough without being annoying (and the exhaust's quiet mode totally takes noise out of the equation). I'm coming to the Raptor community from a Tesla Model 3 Performance, so it's obviously a much different driving experience haha. The only other off-road vehicle I've had in the past was a 2017 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon, and I'm excited to see what this Raptor can do. On the practical side (lol), I've already made a trip to the neighborhood dumpster with a bed full of cardboard boxes and other assorted items that couldn't fit in the Tesla. So the way I see it, purchasing the Raptor has already proven itself a useful decision!

Anyway -- I'll be hunkered down for the next couple days as Hurricane Ian passes through Florida (my thoughts go out to my friends in SW Florida who are about to get clobbered). But next week, the fun really begins. On Monday I'll be getting a full ceramic window tint, and on Tuesday or Wednesday I'll be throwing on 17" Venomrex VR601 wheels in Baja bronze (shoutout to Nick at Apollo Optics for getting me squared away with those). The only thing I've done so far is a quick stubby antenna swap.

Without further adieu, here are some pics I got earlier this morning of the truck in stock form:

Welcome! Nice truck. I lived on south side in Mandarin many moons ago. Samuel Wolfson H.S. (don't know if it still exists) graduate. Also a diehard Gator fan. Hence the name. Would have loved to have a Raptor when I lived there. Lots of offroading there. At least there was when I lived there. Enjoy your beautiful beast.

Oh nice! Wolfson is still around haha. I graduated from Bishop Kenny, and when I was in HS we lived near the Avenues Mall. I'm excited to check out the good truck spots in Jax (and further west where it gets rural).

Appreciate it! I think my YouTube algorithm would prove that the only content I spend more time watching than automotive YouTube is camera/photography YouTube haha. It's been a fun skillset to develop over the last few years. Comes in especially handy when friends need content created (or when you get a new truck and need to document what it looked like before you start modding it :signs6:)
