It seems from a phone, even if you are not on the mobile site, those options just aren't there.

BTW, what state are you in? Do you have off roading available nearby? In NY it's very slim pickings. With my 2017 Raptor I did a guided off road tour up and around Hunter Mountain. It was pretty good day, but just way too slow a pace and became boring by day's end, especially for $375. Ah, but they did serve lunch at the summit. lol
I'M in Maine. A lot like you the off road pickings are slim up here. We do have off roading you can do , but it is more along the lines of very tight and narrow deep woods off roading. We do have the opportunity for gravel pits and big fields if you can get permission. I did a little of that last fall with my 2017. It was fun. But we have no desserts up here in maine, so in some instances I have the wrong truck for the environment. In reality the ideal set up for up here in maine would be a Platinum with the FX4 Package. That would be my second choice. The new limited with the raptor engine would actually be my second choice, but the 22 inch tires will not work up here with all the snow we get between November and march. With all that being said I know I will never desert race this truck and 80 percent of the driving I do is on pavement, but I love the look of the raptor, I think it's the best looking truck out there. I love the engine and I really like how it drives and handles. I really like out it handles now with the new active fox shocks.

So would a platinum have been better for me in maine ? probably. But would I have been as happy ? NO ! And I do not care what anybody says, looks are important and if the truck handles good and functions well and is fast you can't go wrong.

Then you do more off roading than all the Raptor owners I know. I have 5 friends with Raptors and I take my 2wd truck off road more than they all do. Not 1 of them goes off road with any regularity. 2 of them (both girls) only went when I took them in their trucks to teach them how to drive off road.
