I seen that kit at the last Off Road Expo. Talking to the rep from Fiberwerx and Ford is all over them on this one! I agree the curves on the fenders and bed are WAY over done! Other than that it looked great! I would consider if it was closer to OEM!!!

I don't like it at all. I've seen some Raptor conversion kits that look legit but this one is just way too much. I feel sorry for the poor bastard that spent all of his disposable income on this abomination. Even the hood looks like *** IMO....

The reason it is flared so much is to clear large tires and long travel suspension. It is an offroad body panel kit. It looks kinda weak without the big suspension and tires to back it up.

I agree! I think if it was lower with a true long travel setup it would look kick ***! Only way to get away with this setup is having 20K into suspension!!!

that thing is hideous. It has bulges and curves like a overgrown Hyundai Santa Fe.

Nasty! It's just an 04-08 or 09-12 f150 with ugly wheels and a leveling kit. I hope they try and jump it like a raptor...
