So a good friend of mine who owns a 2010 Raptor asked me "what do you think about putting a bed cap on my Raptor"... My response: "that's like putting a cap on a Lightning, it just isn't something you do, other Raptor owners are going to laugh at you".
Am I correct? (I am a former SVT Lightning / Cobra owner X2)
If it was going to be used then why not? I drive up to Tahoe and spend the night or two either at a motel or campground then spend the days towards Carson City out in the desert riding dirtbikes. I use a cap to help cover the bikes in the back of the bed so ******** dont steal my stuff. Who gives a rip what somebody thinks about having a cap. Someone who bitches needs to get a life and stop worrying about your friend and his truck.
Well, I showed him the picture and he likes the fit / continuing paint scheme. I'm on the fence only because the Raptor is an "outdoorsy" truck. The last guy who posted their Lightning with a cap was ridiculed to no end.
And is anyone complaining? Not really, I just thought the SVT crowd would gawk at the thought of a bed cap...I still do. I've been an SVT owner since 1997...if your new to the SVT/SVO crowd, you wouldn't understand!
