Ones gotta ask! Why a pair!? And same color to boot! lol.

Garage lift is sweet too!

Gotta have a convertible :)...and the hardtop was the last year that they made the Viper (2017). I was going to pass on the 17', but I knew if I did I would regret it. The color is called Snake Skin Green, and it has a gold base and the green is almost a candy so in the sun the color really pops. I have been asked a lot as to why both the same color? My answer is why not? The Jeep isn't quite the same color but close enough..and that was picked just to have fun with the whole thing and the wife drives that and she likes that color as well. The lift is sweet...it makes life a lot easier. I have the Viper's because they are actually rarer than Lambo's, etc. Just a little trivia...they made a total of 31,000 Vipers from 1992 to 2017. They make 31,000 Corvettes a year. Just like why I have my Raptor...I like to have things that not too many other people have.

2 weeks ago I picked up a "lightly" used state trooper 2011 tahoe at state auction for my 15 y.o. son. 198k miles, but it runs and drives great and everything works. Painted the white hood flat black and put mamma's 2018 22" Escalade rims and tires on it. Escalade got new shoes for Christmas. It's far from good, but good from far.

I just bought a BMW R 1250 RS. Parked next to a KTM 1290 Super Adventure R and a Yamaha Raptor 700 SE. '06 Honda Civic (daily driver) and the 2020 F-150 Raptor. Maybe enough toys for now...……..

soooooo......0% chance your keeping that lame ass white Raptor when you'll be able to order a lime Green RAM TRX in a year, no? Honestly, wouldn't be the least bit surprised if they offered it as a factory color too!

Naw...I will keep that lame ass white Raptor :) I actually like it in White as I have an ARE fiberglass cap on it that makes it look pretty good. There is NO RAM TRX in my future as the Raptor trips all my triggers and it is not going anywhere. The one thing they emphasized at the Raptor Assault class was the last thing that a Raptor needed was HP and Torque added. They said is there was one place were any money should go it would be on the suspension. So getting a 750hp truck seems a little pointless...at least to me.

well yeah obviously the guy w/ TWO vipers & a Raptor would consider a 750hp truck pointless hahaha

I mentioned in another thread- I’m pretty sure RAM is positioning the TRX not only to compete w/ the raptor, but also to be a more street friendly hot rod that I’m sure will pull some market share from the types of folks who buy AMG/M series SUVs or SRT jeeps & muscle cars in general.
