The2010 Raptor was$36,000 out the door with $1500 of ford motor racing parts thrown in free. It gets 16.3 mpg with the stock 5.4 engine and is beast in the snow. The first 100 customers got the free stuff. My Sahara another stock vehicle could not keep up with it.They were about the same price. Im hoping for better performance out of a moab edition. I hope the dashboard materials habe gotten better. The shark skin finish onbthe ford is superb. On the 2009 Sahara it was garbage

Its not hard to pull it off, but you have to install other parts to go in its place, plus reprogram the computer. That is hard to do when the EPA won't allow vendors to sell that product anymore. I am glad my 04 doesn't have all that B.S.

With no cash being involved, I would trade my new JK for a new raptor. I would not trade for an even barely used raptor.

i would... and then I would sell the raptor for 50K+ and buy another JKU. Maybe get myself a few mods with the extra money.
