    Bro Truck or Awesome truck (for a raptor)? Discuss.

    Edit: I know everyone thinks the roof rack is non-functional and possibly retarded / hideous.

    It's a velociraptor, so naturally it make my pants tight... but that front bumper is hideous

    Wheels and tires are nice...but that's about it for me. Don't get me wrong though, I'd drive the hell out of it.

    I wouldn't call it a 'bro' truck but I think it's ugly.

    Take off every aftermarket piece on it and it would look good.

    Chase rack is very functional if it's built right and used for its designed purpose.

    looks like a pretty good truck. it would be better with some taller suspension and a good bit more travel, but other than that pretty cool. its got lights out the yin yang and is probably as bright as the sun.

    I cannot imagine shelling out that kinda money for SIDE facing LED bars. What's the point in those? Is there one?

    Think middle of the night, middle of the desert, middle of Mexico, pitting for a team during a long-course race.

    Replacing a driveshaft while laying in the dirt is bad enough. It's worse if you're in the dark and can't see.

    FWIW, those Raptors are pretty substantial trucks. They dwarf my Tacoma and I'm rolling on 33's.

    Ditch the bumper. Add 2 inch bigger tires (and a frame strengthening kit), and Id rock that shit till the cows come home.

    Not bad, I'd say far from bro status though.
