wow, driver should be embarrassed!!! Hes living the dream and then sends the dream to the junkyard....Its like when rich kids get a Viper for their first car, everyone thinks they can handle any motor, or in this case, any suspension.

What is it with these assumptions that people buying Raptors are rich? Really...think about it....it's a 40k truck. Middle classers can buy that thing. I see brand spankin' new 50k super dutys on the street all the time...owned by friends parents. Not rich, but well off.

I don't see why everyone's assuming the guy is an idiot. We don't know the story. Trucks have a high COG. They roll. Shit happens.

I would mind having those 35" BFG's made with a Raptor-exclusive compound.....

Thankfully I see alot of them at the dunes here and they do excellent
