    So I had the appointment this morning to check out the Raptor. And man, this thing was beat. You can absolutely tell it was a work truck and I’m glad I had the chance to really give it a once over.

    I told the salesman that with all the imperfections, the price tag could not be justified. I can’t see myself dropping $40k plus on a truck with so many visible signs of wear and tear.

    Here are some photos I took to illustrate the many imperfections.

    On a more positive note, however, I’ve been maintaining contact with a dealership in Delaware that is selling a ‘13 Blue Flame SCREW. Things are progressing and I actually bought a plane ticket this evening to fly down on Wednesday to most likely buy it (barring any unforeseen circumstances or assuming the truck drives like crap...but it looks clean as hell in the photos and videos the salesman has shared with me) and drive it home.

    Stay tuned!

    I just traded in my 13 to First Ford in Fall River for a new 18 and it's in much better shape than the pics of the one you posted.

    I wish I knew you were looking, I haven't been on the forum in a while.

    Seriously?! Ha, go figure. I don't even see it listed on their site, yet.

    Either way, I found what looks like a really clean Blue Flame SCREW in Delaware that I'm flying down on Wednesday to check out. Wish me luck!

    Just traded it Saturday 11/25 so might be a couple days before it's up. Atleast you know where to look for another one if the one in DE doesn't work out.

    Do you already have the '18 or did you place an order?

    What color did you go with?

    White 2018 Screw, no graphics, beadlocks, pretty much every option I think. Took it home same day, got it for MSRP.

    I'll try and get some soon - haven't had much time to even drive it much, took it home Saturday it was dark, went to the Patriots yesterday, working today.

    That's one badass truck! Just out of curiosity, what did they give you for trade on your Gen 1? If you'd rather not make it public, you can PM me or if you don't want to say, that's also fine.
