Default Finally picked up my Raptor

The stars finally aligned for me, here is my new 2018 Raptor. Now to start the mods! Getting sticker shock from the prices of lighting options, but for sure want to add some in the front bumper, a light bar behind the grill, and reverse lights. Already ordered an MX4, and mud flaps, any other must dos?

Mine was closer to $70k, but it is loaded with options. At least no dealer mark up!

I have a friend that owned 3 Raptors. A 2010 that he sold a while back and now currently owns 2 Lightning Blue 2017s. Ones a Supercab and the other is a Supercrew. I have done all the mods to all his vehicles. On the 2010 i put Rigid Duallys in the bumper along with a 20" Rigid Light Bar and at the time i thought they were bright.

On the 2017s i put Baja Designs and holy **** they are BRIGHT AF, they completely blow the Rigid LEDs out the water.

On the Supercab I put Pocket Fogs with 2 sets of Squadron Pros & a set of S2 Pros and a set of S2 Pros under the rear bumper. Ive also isntalled a UPR Oil Seperator

On the Supercrew I put a Set of XL80s on the wiper cowl using SDHQ brackets, Pocket Fogs with 2 sets of Squadron Pros & a set of S2 Pros on each side of the bumper and a set of S2 Pros under the rear bumper. Other mods ive done to it is SPD Turbo Adaptors, S&B Intake, Bak Revolver X2 Bed Cover, UPR Oil Seperator, nGauge with Custom Tune, Some Forscan Mods, Deaver 3+ Rear Springs, SDHQ Bump Stop Mounts & Camburg Extended Lenght Shackles.

Tomorrow if i have time i will be installing a Full Race Intercooler, Full Race TB Spacer, Turbosmart Supersonic BOV & Icon Adjustable Coilover Collars.

Very nice! Love the look of the back up lights and bumper! Did you have to drill into the rear bumper to mount them?

Congrats on the new truck!

If you are looking at doing any kind of suspension upgrade or possibly just adding a Spring perch to level it out and possibly run 37" tires, let me know!

No holes need to be drilled to mount the lights. You remove a bolt slide the bracket behind it and reinstall the bolt. 5 min install, the hardest part is running the wires.
