I was looking at pics of the Raptor here:March 2009 4x4 Truck & Automotive News - 4-Wheel & Off-Road Magazine
Even better (I think) than the Raptor is the new Tacoma. It looks like the one i bought brand new in 1984. It has a solid front axle and no upper CA's. Kinda cool.

The Raptor comes with bypass Fox Racing shocks. Have fun replacing those at ~$300 EACH. Ouch. Plus Ford's markup, probably $400-500 each. OUCH! Everything I read says it's a pretty nasty truck. The front grill, I think, is FUGLY, but rock on for stock 35's Mark W.

yeah the grill on the raptor i thought was ugly to but the stock 35's were a cool thing and the Tacoma looks pretty nice to but on a lighter note somebody took note that their are still people who like 4x4ing and actually made some thing worth buying (other then a jeep) although i have yet to see a price any body catch the price
