    ordered in early october. moved to california this fall and it came in to the dealership last week in north dakota. finally got it down to CA this week so i have about 2300 miles on it so far in only a few days. VERY VERY PLEASED!! this truck exceeded my expectations by a long shot! the ride, how comfortable it is, the sync system, the sound, LOVE the in dash LCD screen, the looks and all the compliments i have gotten, and oh yeah THE POWER!! this things tears ASS!! i could not be more happy with it.

    i havent had much of a chance to get off the pavement but that will change as soon as i move home.

    i hope to have some pics up as soon as i find my camera. just completed some mods that i can almost guarantee have never been on a raptor before!!!

    -2011 super cab
    -raptor plus pkg (rearview cam, trailer brakes)
    -white with the graphics
    -rhino liner
    -volant CAi in the near future

    That's badass! Most people would just settle for some basic sedan that's easy to get in and out of. I commend you!

    Congrats on the truck. I know you've had a long wait.

    x2. Congrats Nodak. That's really cool that you're not letting your back injury limit you. Offroading with the hand controls sounds fun!

    I was in a really bad car wreck when I was a kid, and after 2 body-casts and traction, I was in a wheelchair for several months. It's much more difficult than most people realize. That's awesome that you're not letting it keep you from Raptoring!

    yeah i was in a car wreck and yeah screw those cars/sedans/anything thats not a pickup. it would have taken alot more to keep me from “raptoring” haha. hand controls are pretty easy to use. gas and break are all on one lever and i have a suicide knob so steering is easy with one hand.

    The gas/brake combo lever sounds like it would actually be fun to drive with.
    I'd like to see how that works. It seems like it would feel almost like you are a pilot.
