    I use mine O-R multiple times a year for hunting trips when I don't need to haul the RZR, when I do tow the RZR, when we go to the beach at San Luis Pass, when we've gone on trips to Moab, and then also every day to work(now only 1x per week due to COVID and working from home)........outside of it going off-road, I keep it as clean as any poser, given how much I love the truck and how much trucks cost these days........helps it get plenty of complements when I run errands around town. The Suntek PPF and my buffer keep it looking as good as the day I bought it......

    The amount of dust/mud on my Raptor (with 12 miles of dirt/mud road on my DD) is directly proportional to the amount of rainfall we've had.

    Off road today getting to and from home- check
    Grocery getter-check
    Happy Wife-check

    Smile on my face every time I drive it-check :)

    Will I ever run 100 MPH through a desert with it? Probably not, I live in Ohio.

    Will I ever push it real hard off-road? Again, probably not.

    But look at the cost to properly add 35”s, a lift, and these shocks to a regular F-150. It’s not cheap.

    Most hillbillies throw a set of larger tires on their truck, some half ass Rough Country/Great Value lift on there and call it a day. They never correct the speedometer/odometer. They never re-gear and retune the trans. Their wheel assemblies are often overweight which results in pre-mature bearing failure, shit handling, and poor fuel economy. Which is to say nothing of having a set of properly spec’d shocks and springs. And the moment you do, there goes the warranty.

    The Raptor is a completely engineered package. The same qualities that make it excellent off road also help in Ohio’s wartorn shithole roads. And if need be, I CAN go off road, or do the regular truck stuff that I need to do.

    same decision process for western PA. And also I don’t put a lot of miles on my vehicles. Value retention is obscene in Raptors.

    I bought mine for the upcoming Zombie Apocalypse, or the ensuing revolution when the gov't tries to take back our guns.

    I am going to hide everything in Vortex boxes so they feel sorry for me and leave'em!
