    It is funny, I been in the Sahara desert with my old rubicon unlimited diesel all prepped up, and our guide was driving an old (80'S) Toyota pick up 3.0 aspirated diesel and never got stuck. AND we have issue with our trucks. Hilarious

    It's not that hilarious when you consider the weight. That old Toyo probably weighs 2500 pounds. Far less than half of even a Gen 2 Raptor. Closer to a third of the weight of a modded and fully loaded Gen 1. :shrug:

    You're missing the whole point, bro. It's the weight that keeps those little trucks and Jeeps floating on top of the sand.

    What's next, you want to talk about how a 1000 pound sand rail with 250 horsepower is faster in the dunes than a Raptor?

    You're right. It wasn't the light weight of that old Toyo. It was the superior 1980s tire and driveline technology.

    I don't think you know how the internet works, bro.

    :lol2:

    Hey you know what else is hilarious? A Raptor costs $70k and has 450 horsepower and it can't even pop wheelies on water like this sand rail.

    No problems on the dunes whatsoever on our Raptor runs.

    As is the case for the vast majority of Raptor owners.

    What do you say to that, Marty McFly?

    Perhaps it's just you and your kind having troubles adapting to the modern world?
