They can only build 6 a week.
So get in line, its a hot item.
I think this is the look they were trying to replicate:
They say on their website, they were going for the 69 Mustang look. They must have a deal in the works with a big manufacturer because they plan on releasing versions for Chevy, RAM and Toyota soon. Glad to see they started with Ford.
Yeaaaah, I will take one of these:
and two of those:
and thats it for fins...
If you have a Raptor, you already got those, just like everyone else. Some don't mind spending a little to get something nobody else in town probably has.
I was trying to find a nice way to say that look is not for me.
The lines on the tailgate look tight but the production quality around the cab looks ebay like. The product somehow found a way to ignore any styling queues from the Raptor to tie the louvers to the fins and a window line that would match whats on the Truck. Louvers are not the best styling element to come out of that era, like bringing back plastic chrome for the sake of doing it. They somehow closed the gap on the making a Raptor look like a Pontiac Aztec. Aztec owners also spent money to drive something that no one else in town has (or wants).
Wow! That's horrible. That thing is so ugly, it makes 20" wheels look good.
If you don't like it, no need to beat around the bush. Like any mod, it's a matter of taste and possibly appeal to less than 10% of truck owners. That's still a lot of sales. A lot the stuff they show at SEMA is really overdone, but does show what's possible.
I don't like the fact that you cannot open the tailgate without first popping the hatch (deal breaker for me). It looks to be completely water tight, as the outer edge is below the top of the bed/tailgate.
It turns a truck into a hatchback. Not for me.
