2010 Ford Raptor: Shiny Side Up

June 15, 2011


There are a couple of smaller details in our Raptor that I find very cool. First is the race inspired rally wheel and it's red stripe. Lets you know which way is up, to keep you upright. Might not be totally necessary for driving through traffic in the morning, but it certain adds a little excitement to the 405.


Second is the large side view mirror. No, it's not the massively over sized towing variety, but it's very handy to see what rocks you're clearing with the rear wheels. As an added bonus for me, I love the flared wheel wells. I get admire them in said side views when I'm just looking for motorcycles in traffic.

Most times people love their vehicles for their capabilities, not necessarily for what they're doing at that moment. Those smaller elements I love about our Raptor bring back the memories of fun off-road times while stuck in the daily grind.
