    Ok, I'm really having a hard time here.

    I want a Raptor, 2013/14 loaded up.

    I own a awesome 1999.5 (late 99) f350 SCrew long bed ,Lariat , with the awesome 7.3.

    It's a one owner truck, me. I love it, been through a lot with it . It only has 95,309 miles ! It really is a gem.



    But boy oh boy do I want a new Raptor. For those that went from a Superduty to a Raptor, do you miss your old Superduty?

    I don't tow much with mine. I go hunting, and get wood with it.

    If I get a Raptor, I could do all that, probably get a trailer for wood getting.

    I think an quartered elk would fit in the Raptor....

    I'm just torn.

    Any crossover stories would be appreciated...good or bad.

    Thank you!

    I think the Raptor could fit the bill well...but could you keep the F350 too? Might be the best of both worlds!!

    Test drive a raptor and I'm sure you'll decide quickly. Lol

    You could fit several whole non-quartered elk easily in a raptor! Get it you won't miss your SD at all! So much fun!

    Yeah, like in "Tommy Boy". Just make sure it's dead.

    I came from an f250 and I loved it. I only looked for a new rig to get a crew cab. I don't miss it one bit. You will love the Raptor.

    Right!

    I just drove a 2013 white Screw with 12,000 miles on it from a local dealer. It's the owners dealer truck.

    All I could do was go in town a bit and down the highway for about 15 miles. It's FAST. the 6.2 puts you at 80 mph real fast and you don't realize how fast your going until you look down and see 80.

    I wish I could have taken it off road. I never got it into 4wd.

    He wants 53,500$ no front camera no beadlock wheels no bed extender or step. Everything else though.

    So I got back in my Superduty and drive home wishing I could have off roaded the rig a bit.

    Made a truck feel like a sports car....just wish it had at least a 6.5 foot bed!
