2019 Ford F-150 Raptor

I went to my dealership with the intention of buying a Shelby GT350 and my dealer just happened to show me the new raptor—I was sold. I traded in the F250 I owned and passed on the Mustang. The Raptor fulfilled both needs of a truck and performance vehicle all in one.

I started with the front-end suspension and engine performance before moving to the rear suspension. On each trip out to the desert, I realized a new need, such as rear suspension improvements, lighting, recovery gear etc. I’ve spent a lot of time researching products and learning from others.

So far I’ve added:

My ultimate goal was to build a truck that performed well while having a great custom look. Along the way I’ve made some mistakes and I’m still learning from it. But so far, I am very happy with the build. Next up, I plan to continue with the suspension, maybe RPG UCAs and Fox Full Raceshocks. Also, looking to add a tire carrier for the bed as well.

My Raptor is becoming a new hobby for me, almost replacing my passion for my Harley. It’s been great introducing my daughters to the sport as well as teaching them something new.
