Hey guys, some of you might know me from the Facebook group or Instagram (@Vipertoad). I owned two G2 Raptors previously, and just picked up a lightly used 2k mile 2021 G3 Raptor. Fully loaded with everything, minus the 37 option (highly dislike the blue interior on those). Anyways, planning a similar build route with this G3 as I did my G2 which was level, ADD PBO Bumper, 20" Light Bar, 20" Wheels, Full Body Wrap and some other misc goodies. I'm not planning on doing any tuning or performance mods as this is my daily driver and I need it reliable with great gas mileage. Also need to keep the warranty completely in-tact in case anything goes wrong.

That being said, previous owner already did a few choice mods to it! I picked it up with full front end PPF, full body ceramic coating, gold Venomrex 601 20x9 wheels, BFG 35x12.5/20 Tires, Retrax XR Bed Cover, TuxMats, and front window tint.

Here is how it looked the day it came:

Last week, I had my first round of mods done! I was able to source an ADD Pro-Bolt On that was in stock at Texas Motoworx, and had it shipped directly to a local shop here called Foutz Motorsports. They installed the ADD bumper for me, along with an RC 20" Amber DRL Light Bar, and their 2" Leveling Collar. The 2" collar was the perfect option for me as I felt the 1.5" wasn't enough and 2.25" is too much without leveling the rear. Here are some photos after the first round of mods:

Here's a side shot to show off the Foutz Motorsports 2" Leveling Collar:

Anyways, first round of mods is done! Already SO happy with how the truck looks/sits, the stance is perfect with the 2" Foutz Collar IMO.

Yesterday, I dropped off the truck to my wrap shop of choice Colorbomb Wraps for a full color change!! I'll post photos of that once it's back from the wrap shop probably late next week.


Also, my 20" VTForged Two Piece Wheels should be here next month! These are the VTFORGED GT-5 2-Piece forged wheels, spec'd in 20x10 -24 (same as my Method 605 I have on my G2). Matte black face, gloss black lips, black hardware. I loved how the Method wheels sat on the G2 so wanted the same look/fit on this G3, but with an actual forged two piece wheel. I can't wait to get them!! Here's a sneak peak of the wheels to my exact spec/color/offset/width/etc:

I'll post an update as soon as the truck is back from the wrap shop!

Looks great.

Any change of the driving dynamics with the lift and 20” ? Especially on the highway

Haven’t noticed any driving dynamics change, aside from it feeling a tiny bit stiffer up front, which isn’t a bad thing. Feels like it handles better and feels a lot tighter.

Rain guards were the AVS ones, told the wrap shop to toss them as I'm not a fan of the look.
