    you wont be able to kick or push from the inside, its too strong, but I have used a floor jack inside the cab with a 2 x 4 to push up the roof so the windshield stays put and the doors close. Did that when a buddy rolled his chevy in the ditch.

    Pretty wild what the tide/waves did in a few short days.

    Just noticed all the rust as well. I'd say it was there a bit longer than a few days as well.

    I thought the same but after looking at the Raptor in the 1st pic it was facing the opposite way. Looks like it was tossed around in the surf and after a few days of salt water I can see it ended up in that condition.

    I sure would like to know the story on what happened!

    [UPDATE 2 P.M.] Three Slides Closed Beach Access to Shelter Cove – Redheaded Blackbelt

    "The photographer tells me the vehicle is a “Ford Raptor ($80,000) vehicle that appears almost brand new. With a after market lift kit, etc…(now we’re up to $100,000) It is still there. And rolling in the surf. It is after No Pass Point, so there is no way to remove it. Talk about a waste of money!"

    Such a sad end to a very special truck.
