Default Saw a 2013 Raptor today.

My dealer took delivery of an all black one today. Saw it sitting out back when I drove by. Still had the protective plastic pieces on the fenders from transport.

HIDs looked nice on the black. I didn't go look through the truck or take any pics. Sorry. They would have given me the keys had I asked but I was running late for other things so I chose to check it out later.

Thought you guys would like to know.....

Clearance lights mandated by the federal government? Does no one realize the raptor is the exact same width mirror to mirror as a standard f150. Not to mention you can buy 3500's without clearance lights
