    Well, looks like I'm an owner of 2018 Magnetic Raptor. Ended up getting $2,755 under sticker. I'm pretty happy with that. I'll be taking it to work, and getting it muddy on Monday. haha!

    Congrats I've decided to order a 19 just not sure if I'll order it now or wait until first of 19 to order.

    Cool on your truck being trouble free. Yeah my F250 has had 2 water pumps replaced, engine, heater cool and egr issue all under warranty, so yeah not the most reliable also fuel sensor went bad on under hood fuel filter so plugged it off and now have the new part but haven't put it on. Ford had them on back order. It's all good I'm a Ford guy and will still buy a Raptor and give it a try.

    Nice on your buddies F350. Yeah some hits you don't feel and others I do.

    I'll have to drive an 18 Raptor on a longer test drive but your probably right about the pickup but maybe a little tune will help with that. Good luck with what you decide to do.

    Congrats. You don’t mind spilling the beans on where you got it?

    Freedom Ford Lincoln Mercury in Wise, Va. Small hometown dealership. They had 4 Raptors between the three lots they own. As of right now I'm not sure if they have any left. It was a Lightning Blue with Orange Interior, pretty much every option available, has all the stickers. MSRP was close to $74k. At the time they had it priced $2,500 under sticker, but I'm pretty sure it sold as well. I thought I heard him say that I had bought their last 2018. One of the 4 was going to Alaska, which I thought was pretty cool. It was an awesome dealership to deal with. Straight up, no BS. Which I knew all the numbers anyways, and they ended up giving me $2,500 more for my trade than I was expecting, so I came out of there smiling ear to ear, haha.

    Damn that’s good to hear there’s some decent dealerships out there. VA is too far for me to save $2.5k, i hope it sold so I don’t get tempted.

    Congrats again and thanks for the story share.

    Here is a link to it. It still shows online, but they may have not updated their website yet.

    Forgot to mention, they do have a $499 "processing" fee. Oddly enough, that's one of the lowest fee's I've been able to find. That's on any vehicle, so I knew that going into the deal.

    There is another local dealer that heavily advertised "No dealer doc fee's" but they are clearly making up the difference in the price of their vehicles, and on the trade values. They haven't been able to get close to other dealers, and for me its always been cheaper to take the processing fee and get a better deal at the end of the day.
