    Also any pics of the aluminum dash inserts? Going back and forth if I should order with or without it. Truck will be Performance Blue. Thoughts?

    I have a 2018 but I think the Recaros look awesome from the pics I’ve seen, especially with the performance blue. I’d vote for Recaro for sure

    Recaro - if you have performance blue, black or velocity blue
    More of color matching since Recaro is blue with black leather/leatherette.

    Shopping for a 19 now, and on the fence about the Recaros. Does anyone know if you can order the Recaros with Ruby Red? The online builder prevents you with either red exterior...waiting on response from the dealer.

    You were told wrong. The Recaro's in the Raptor are electric.

    I opted for Recaro in my 19 Performance Blue order. I think it is a good combo. But I would really like to see this particular combo in person to alleviate any anxiety.

    Recaro are electric and heated and cooled

    No recaro with red

    I have agate black and went with the carbon fiber interior. Really didn't like the blue color recaros. But if I was going with a blue exterior, I'd definitely go with the recaros as the blue would match.

    I vote not. My last car (Audi SQ5) had Alcantara inserts in the seats. It is one of the reasons why i got rid of that car. After 2 years, the inserts just were not aging well. Any moisture from sweat or worse, a wet swim suit just made them look like crap for days after.
