How is the F-150 Raptor not on this list? You do realize THAT is the best offroading truck there is.

What's wrong with what you have? It seems to be a good all around choice. The wheel base is relatively short and you have the drive system. It would just need some tweaks.

Or are you looking for something you can beat up on and not worry about it?

Default Re: Best off road truck?

lol my plan is to probably turn my ranger into the off road beast until it dies, meanwhile buy a current truck that will one day be an off road beast following the ranger.. and btw try and not be toooo bias lol. though i must say my ranger has been the most dam near capable of any of the trucks i've off roaded with.

i leaning towards the f150 fx4 but i love the looks and size of the colorado with a v8 but they seam to be extinct.... and i heard they are crap

----------

im not really looking for anything asap just in the next year or so... but the other thing i dont like about the raptors is i feel i cant mod them like i would a normal f150 of ranger(they already tooo modded) plus its size, trails around here are tight as a virgins p***y

raptor lovers:


that's a fairly common problem too, a shop my work does business with organized a raptor run and all 3 of their shop trucks bent frames, and over 50% of the paying participants did as well.

there are kits in the work, but it's all hush hush. so far all that is publicly available is bolt on upper arms, and King makes shocks for it.
