Haha blind you are correct! All joking aside if you want one and have the money don't hesitate find the right one you want or order it and get it you will not regret it one bit! I've been in the army 8 years now and I got My truck back in January of 2010 and have loved every second of ownig it! Yea it took me 2 deployments to save up for it but it was well worth it! I'm from Southern California and grew up playing in the desert so this truck was perfect for me. During my deployments my parents would drive out to see me off then they would drive my truck back with them. They live in California and I was stationed in fort hood TX for 7 years and just got statione in fort benning GA last November. You really are over thinking this one I'm sure everyone will help you make up your mind here and tell you to just get one! This Forum is by far the best raptor forum in the world it's like a sik twisted family haha but a good one to be a part of!!
