    Lightly used. I like the color. I looked at one last week for body issues in my office parking lot. The body was bang on. I believe the 17s don't have the issues the 18s have. It's possible after so many cycles of the press that the dies need surfaced. Or the roll material had an imperfection and it became a door on my truck.

    My Raptor is called the 5050 edition. 50% Recycled Coors Light Cans and 50% Cardboard reinforced with glue. But I love da bitch! I can honestly say I have never been happier with this truck. I cant imagine not having it. Hopefully FSTBSS gets one soon. Take your time and hunt for a good one!

    Rapdav18 I search about three times a week. There is a surprisingly large number of 18's sitting within a 50 mile radius of me but they don't have the options I had. Honestly finding one on the lot would be the way to go at this point. I can look it over and know What I'm getting. Dealers never put the orange accents or carbon fiber in them for some reason though. I don't want to give that up. Have you or anyone you know heard if there's any changes in 19'?

    I agree. I would wait and get the truck with the exact options you want. I haven't heard anything yet as to what 2019 has to offer. I will keep an eye out for you. At this point it might be smarter to hold off 2018 search. In about 3 to 6 months you will probably want a 2019 anyway. Its a blessing in disguise as you can be one of the first with a possible TTV8. Get yourself on two dealer lists. That way you have two choices. I believe your in a good place now with a Raptor in your future!

    Yeah I've heard about this ttv8 as well as a possible 7x motor. I guess it's best to hold off for now. The auto show is the end of January here in Philly so maybe there will be some Intel then.

    They will be at Sema but probably with mods. I think they will debut the 2019 Truck first overseas at the European auto expo. Then the New York or Los Angelas auto show. Those actually start around May of next year. Ford Loves to show Europe what they are making. Each year its announced on CNN. Just a guess not for sure R2

    I was always under the impression new car release dates were the September before the new year. So if you wanted an 18' model you could get it in Sept of 17'. Turns out 18's were hitting the lots in August of 17'. I believe I read that the 18's were up for the dealer to order for the lot as early as march of 17'. I ordered my 18' on July 29th of 17'. The week before ford updated the build your own f150 on the website showing the new upgrades and options for raptor. Hopfully we can all hear about any new motor upgrades just after the turn of the yr. I'd really like a ttv8.
