Finally arrived. It’s a wonderfully fun ride. And all the talk about the fender design is overrated — they look fine. Last night with 2/3 of top off was great.

Very smooth and the wind noise is not bad at all — it was a calm day. My passenger said it’s quiet. Easy to talk to passengers. Definitely doesn’t have F150 Raptor power though.

Really? What do you mean by more power, stronger or faster?

I am comparing a few miles (so take it with a grain of salt) in Bronco Raptor to a Gen 3 37 package F150, which to me drives like a Porsche/Mercedes pick up truck - amazing throttle responsiveness, crisp steering, crazy speed for its size, and super comfortable. The BRaptor is a totally different vehicle but I haven’t yet found the throttle responsiveness or crisp steering. I’m sure it’s there. It’s super cool and it’s quiet inside for what it is, which is a super cool, excellent US engineered top free 4X4 machine.

I think I'll move my pedal commander from my f-150 raptor to mine when it arrives, that should take care of throttle lag.

Congrats !! Did you get the seat upgrade not sure exactly what called but the orange ? My question is it Didn’t seem like the seat upgrade would do well with water. But yes congrats very sweet ride !!

Yes got the seats. I think they will be fine with water. Not buckets of water. But should be fine. Nice seats for sure.

I have to ask if there is anything you wish you would have added or not gotten on the Raptor ? Like with or without the orange seats? Or anything different at all ?

No — happy with everything. Love the orange seat belts and orange seats. Carbon fiber is nice but not priced to value (too expensive). Everything else great. I didn’t leave any option untouched.

Has to be a good feeling to know that the long wait is worth it. Imagine it finally getting to you and it was a huge disappointment?!? Good thing is, I have yet to see anyone complain about their BRap when they received theirs.
