    Bought my 2018 Raptor new yesterday. Been lurking and learning for several months here so a big thank you to all who post here as I learned a lot. Got a Shadow Black SCREW with 802A, Tech Pkg, Spray in bed liner, 2nd row heated seats, 2 panel moon roof, hood graphics, tailgate step & black 17” forged wheels for MSRP. Dealer was asking $10k over MSRP but I just stood firm and walked away twice and they eventually agreed.

    I knew I’d love the truck, but surprised how much my wife likes it. It is much more comfortable than I thought. I’m very happy with my truck!

    Lol, love that "market adjustment"! Glad you stood firm. I did too a few months ago, and dealer finally relented.

    Congrats on the new ride. Is that the Explorer you traded in?

    market adjustment? 80,000??? wtf?

    73,185, I paid 67,651.53 there was no negotiating the price.
    it was last allocation they had left at the time.
    is fully loaded except for the seat upgrade from what I understand.
    which I didnt care for bc of the interior carbon fiber with orange hue

    Yeah... 16 Sport Explorer. Was a fun car, but no Raptor and the hood was starting to rust on the front lip which worried me.

    Congrats! Could you please post some pics of your hood graphics? (A couple Close ups would be awesome too).

    Are they solid black with the silver outline or do they have any dots in them?

    I’m thinking of adding them to mine but can’t aeem to get a picture of the ones for black trucks.

    Thanks so much!!!
