2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: It's The Little Things

This is my favorite detail on the Raptor. Near as I can tell it does nothing but look cool. And that's enough. Honestly, that's what I love about this truck: It's strikes a perfect balance of function and style.

Anyone with an eye for these items can see them in passing without effort. And even those who know nothing seem to take notice.

There are more...

See that external-reservoir Fox damper? Its visibility is no accident. Nor is its function. These are obvious on both ends of these trucks at a quick glance. A closer look reveals the gnarly aluminum lower control arms up front.

Even the exhaust -- a double-barrel bologna cut -- looks cool from above. Combined, these details are enough to make a non-truck guy into a committed truck guy.

Just ask anyone around here.
