I know it's not a new GT500 but I decided that since having a new son, and living up north in Canada that we were in desperate need of both a truck and 4 wheel drive.

If any of you have debated matching up your GT500s with a Raptor, i highly recommend it!! We are loving it!! Once car is out of the shop ill post some cool side by side pics!! :)

Love it. I have a 2011 super crew with kooks headers and magna flow exhaust, cold air and custom tune. Putting out 500+ hp. Love it and don't be afraid to "drive it" :roller:

Hey Trevor couldn't agree more..... I bought a New Raptor in 2012 what a awesome truck. Then last month couldn't help myself, and bought a 2014 GT 500. I think the two complement each other perfectly. Ford definitely kicks everyone's A** with these two. Have fun!!

sorry BJ, Mike's pretty much done with it....I hope :) lol! We had an issue with rings not sealing from when the bottom end went in (a local shop that I will never go to again) so I shipped the car back to mike to get her 100% for once lol

Thanks all! Love the Raptors forsure! But mines staying stock! I hope! :)

Congrats on the Raptor acquisition! I too was looking for a 6.2 in a SCREW, and opted for the 2011 Lariat w/6.2. Raptor's are are very over-priced IMO. Kinda like buying a Lincoln badged F150.

I am on my second set of Shelby and Raptor. I had a 2010 Shelby that I traded last Aug for my 2012 Shelby. In Feb I traded a 2010 Raptor SCab on a 2012 Raptor Screw

You boys need to take a peek behind the curtain and discover the VMP TVS on the way. Our Raptor is champing at the bit, getting ready to rear his head and rock!

Congrats! I had one of the early Raptors that still had the 5.4 in it. I needed more towing capacity at the time and sold it.

My 2010 had the 5.4 as well. IT was the main reason I wanted to trade for a 2012 with the 6.2, plus all the new toys

Trevor, I like your taste in trucks!

Today I ordered my 2014 Raptor Supercab, also in Blue Flame. I am not looking forward to the wait. Sounds like it will be at 3 months or more. I only had to wait 2 months for my GT500..

Huh...Have you looked underneath a Raptor?

How much do you think that FOX suspension is worth? That said, many Raptors are bought by punters that never take it offroad, which is a shame, as these are amazing, capable trucks!
