Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: Feed Me, Seymour
January 07, 2011
While waiting for the Raptor to refuel, I decided to check the oil. I didn't realize that the hood and the grille would both rise from the bumper. The resultant opening is cavernous! I mean, really, quite massive. I think a Prius fell out.
The oil level was just fine, though there was a coating of brown dust over everything in the engine bay (just as any true off-roader should have). Closing the hood wasn't nearly as easy as opening, though. I'm not short, but I had to reach for the bottom of the grille on the tips of my toes. I'm guessing shorter folks will need to step onto the bumper, hold onto the grille and jump.
