    After this I decided it was time to buy a 2019, not a good idea to treat a Raptor like a Jeep.

    Exactly what makes me nervous to buy used.

    Not a waste! I pulled the carpet and interior, stuck a dehumidifier in it and it was fine.

    LOL Yeah this video was from the end of last year. I just posted it on my YouTube channel. I've been smart enough to stay out of the water with my 2019!

    :smiley-face-popcornWow show us more!!

    I crossed a river in my 12k TJ Jeep when rock crawling in CO. The water made it 2” shy of the door handles... I don’t have the balls to do it in a Raptor. TJ could ford water with out risking the electronics the Raptor has running under the cab.

    Smooth even power when going through deep water. Your rapid acceleration caused a loss of traction, hence....you got stuck.
