    Well, since I never made a build thread for my other truck and I do expect to be here for a while and I have a new Raptor to mod now. Like the UFC guy yells "Itttttttttttttt's TIIIIIIME!!!!!!! ha ha ha... I bet hes got it copyrighted and will be after me now...
    So, first off looking under the 2012 I do see a difference in the rear shock protectors... They are more substantial that the 2010's for sure

    And I am sure happy that I can still lift this thing up! I still need to raise 6 more ft of the ceiling but, the screw fits with a few inches to spare! Since my old truck had the big bumper that extended about 12in out from the front its about the same length as the screw!!! Woot!!!

    Oops sorry.. he he... Did you say tool? The tool box way in the back of the truck is just American tool
    The one on the left there is just stainless bolts and nuts

    and this one is all metric.. Oh ya, I am going through the metric box to weed out the stuff I can get rid of...

    Next thing is when I negotiated the trade in price I was able to get tizz's rear bumper that I redid... Woot!!! I was so glad to get that cause I really love the way is looks and its one tough SOB!!! and its traveled a load of miles in the back of my Fusion!!! ha ha

    The first thing I thought when I saw the new truck was the rear bumper went bye bye. Glad you kept it!! :peace:
