Default 5.0 raptor w/12" lift on 22" fuel hostage on 40" tires

So im 80% done with my 2011 raptor conversion. I have fabtech/dirt logic stage 3 raptor coilover, AAL kit on the truck with a 3 inch bodylift. Running 40" toyo open country on 22x11 fuel hostage wheels. Getting 8 mpg... Finished up all the raptor fenders, bumpers and bed panels. Also onstalled the factory raptor fender vent, tailgate emblem, and factory leds from the raptor. All that is left on the outside is prerunner front end, chase rack and side steps. Still waiting on my turbo setup to make it my personal velociraptor 640.

Let me know what u guys think.

Mother of god. That's expensive.

I don't like what the tow hooks are doing.

The raptor would have cost almost 60k with taxes. I have 57k invested total and is not a stock raptor... Plus I have the raptor suspension upgrade on mine.

I can but wont, this suspension cost too much to risk damaging it. Plus ive seen a stock raptor mess his suspension up on a small jump so not worth the risk. more of a show truck

I admire all the work u put into it, but it's a bit overkill IMO. I know u said it's a show truck, but Raptors (or raptor conversion in ur case) just don't look good lifted. Idk, maybe if it was just a regular f150, it would look better. Good job on all the work though. I definitely wouldn't be able to tell it was a conversion at first glance.
