Ford Raptor

Postby PhilD » Tue Jun 17, 2008 12:47 pm

If you haven't been following Ford's H3T competitor I hear it is pretty much a go and will be on sale 2010 or 2011. Ford are pushing the Raptor as, "The first and only Baja 1000 Trophy Truck you'll be able to buy from a dealer." Which may be a bit of a stretch, but it's got some nice features:

Fox reservoir shocks
12" front suspension travel
Front/rear lockers
33" or 35" tires (I'm guessing 35's)
Boss 6.2L V8

I doubt it's going to be much for rock crawling, but should be nicely set up truck for desert running, pre running, etc.

I believe it will look pretty much like the next gen (2009) F150, with some minor styling changes; grille, air dam, fender flares, etc. I understand that the rims in the pic you posted will be the production rims and most probably wrapped in BFG AT's.

So it'll be a full size and not a mid-size like the H3T?

A F150 and H3T are not as different in size as you may think.

Length
H3T: 210.4"
F150: 211.2

Wheelbase
H3T: 134"
F150: 126"

Those are great looking wheels for oem. It would be great to see a production truck rolling out of the showroom with 35's.

Ford Raptor just ran the recent Baja 1000.

Not a big fan of Fords, but this one I like.

I think they've got it right, the side graphics aren't me, but aren't that bad either. It offers some great off-road performance for those running in the desert or on general trails, it's a full size pickup, no chrome, and comes with what's got to be the best setup factory suspension for high speed off-roading.

Saw one this past weekend. It was a dark grey and the graphics were almost unnoticeable. It looked great and sounded even better. Not really something I would go for considering the price but pretty cool truck. Was talking to my brother in-law about it and he said a friend of his out west took one for a test drive in the desert. Guess he took video and it does great hauling a$$ across the desert 8)

Back in Sept. ran across about 10 of them running Hell's Revenge, just past the Top of the World climb. We were going in, they were going out. Have to say I liked the looks of these and they were not camoflaged. I took some cell phone photos, but switched cell phones just after that. I'll have to see if I still have them on the old phone.

I'll happily race one across the desert :D The new 425hp engine coming out in '10 might pose a problem tho...
