    Take some time and look around. You'll find plenty of mods that others have done. Chris or Witchy at Freedom Motorsports can get you hooked up with almost anything you're looking to do.

    Those sound like a great starting point. I'm assuming you've already done mid perch. Have you thought of exhaust, CAI, and tune? When we did ours the between the increase in power and the sound I fell in love all over again. Headers are also on our list. Here's some reading material for you. Some DIY mods from fellow FRF members. Let us know if we can help with anything. Pm me or [email protected]

    Best thing I can tell you, is design what you want your truck to look like when "finished" (yeah, quotes on that one, but at least mostly finished)

    then list out all the mods, from there you can arrange them by budget or by looks or by performance (on road or off road)

    performance route on road would be exhaust, tune, CAI

    performance route off road would be: stage III (IV if huge budget), tires/wheels

    looks: bumper, lights

    utility: winch, bed cage

    if you know what you want the truck to end up looking like you can build the list over time and nothing will end up looking tacked on. I appreciate the really clean modded Raptors out there where it looked like the person had a vision of what they wanted their truck to look like.

    Hey Bud... I'm looking at the Model: SWHDRLTNG5STARSCREW Combo package on your website.
    Besides the obvious, is there any other info you can give me?
    I see there is a 20% end of year deal... do we get anything additional off because we are members here?

    Thanks in advance

    Your first mods should be recovery gear and a fire extinguisher, unless your truck will be a street queen...

    Mid perch isn't essential but like most things Raptor it's about taste. I'll see if I can hunt up before and after shots. I know there's lots of discussion on the forum.

    Just make it your own. It's about what you like and want. On here there are as many opinions as there are ass holes and any are different. You have to do what you think looks the best. Listen to what folks say but do what you want not what the crowd tells you.

    The only other information available really is that we are offering intake/exhaust/tuner packages for just about everything we offer. That being said, with a sale that has discounts as deep as we are offering at the moment we can't discount them any further. The pricing on everything is already cut to the bone specifically for forum members. Everything on our site is directed and built specifically for FordRaptorForum members as is.
