They are making me pay msrp, last two Raptors I only had to pay invoice. Some dealers are really jacking them up tho, cause they have low initial allocations.

Never have had any of my raptors in the air! Seen the frame bending videos ? I got the first order spot at our dealer, who knows when it will get here. First Raptor was the best truck I've ever owned for resale. Drove it 3 years and lost 4000$

Raptors are about the coolest trucks in recent times, imho. Congrats and be sure to post some pics when it gets in.

Looks like a moomba tower?

Possibly set up to pull wakeboarders down the local irrigation canal

I grew up in Chinook and have dreamt about winch setups on some of those long flood irrigation canals but I like your idea better.

@surfdude Once you take delivery would you mind snapping a pic with your '14 LSV hooked up?  I'm interested to see how much it sags.  I'm seriously considering getting one once the premium go down after the initial launch.  Many thanks.
