I see very few SCab Raptors vs. SCrews

    RAPTORS were engineered to be SCABS from the ground up. SCREWS are an afterthought to make FORD money off all the Starbuck Mall Screwers. RAPTOR SCABS are for the purist and are the ICON and benchmark for F150 performance. Did they show the SCREW off at the launch? Did they send two SCREWS to motor trend to huck all over the dunes? Nope they sent the best... the SCAB.

    That would be a dumb move on Ford.

    I agree. And over time the rarity of the SCAB will make it more valuable as a toy. Right now most are daily drivers so the practicality of the screw is in demand. Are the older SCABs getting a premium in your area? My buddy said he had to go two states over to get his '13 SCAB and he paid a premium compared to a SCREW

    Or "sir you want a larger bed so offroading is obviously secondary to utility to you, let me show you our regular F150s or F250s"

    99 out of 100 people would say the SCAB looks better. One guy would be a SCREW owner.

    Uhmmm.... I think almost 100% of SCAB owners, and most of the folks posting in this thread think the SCAB is better.

    I could have bought a Screw a lot more easily than the SCAB...traveled several hours each direction to buy mine, and even flew to Colorado to look at one when I was still shopping.

    Love my SCAB. I never considered buying the SCREW because the main point (for me) of buying the Raptor was for off-road/utility and the SCAB is more suited to it. Looks better too.

    Also, I find crew cab doors fucking annoying whenever I have to borrow someone else’s truck (rare). I am constantly getting into the back for tools, gear, etc. Having to walk around the second door gets old real fast.
