I already have two jacked up trucks, I got that Olympic high jumper run and tilt on lock.

Plus, these are only mildly lifted, aka poser trucks.

I can't believe a ******* Tacoma is $44k now. At that price point you should be shopping full size. ****, you're close to Raptor territory at that.

Hell no, the new Raptor is going to cost a grip.

Plus after having this new F150 for almost a year the aluminum body scares the **** out of me. Someone backed into my bumper in a parking lot (hit and run of course) and the skin looks like a Pepsi can someone stepped on. :eek:

You can get the TRD off road for 31-35k depending on options. It's got the locking diff which is the main thing you want. Not sure the extra 10-15k is worth what the Pro adds, you could get better parts for less money on the aftermarket.

YMMV.

I'll believe that when I see it. That's probably for the stripper with the **** backseat.

Otherwise the Raptor is going to be just a tick more expensive than my loaded XLT. That **** cray.

I'll still have reservations about something wearing aluminum skin that you will abuse the **** out of.
