    Have you seen this thing? It's the SVT Cobra engine like in the Lightening, but with fox suspension and a 4x4 drivetrain- MUCH awesomeness. I saw it at the convention center a few weekends ago and I think I might be... Obsessed.

    Great execution. I could see buying one seeing that it's something that is done and has a WARRANTY. I'm sure the has out of the box truck would be sweet. I bet his fenders will still be in one piece after the first year.

    the raptor is a bit fugly they should have stuck with a the bronco as a svt woulda been a better 4x4 platform vs. a repackaged f150 idk why they abaondoned it if i wanted a prerunner ford id get ranger/edge

    These trucks are awesome. There's a black one running around town where i live and it looks sweet. Much better than the grill on the stock 09 F150. The cobra and lightning don't have the same motor. 4.6 for the terminator svt-cobra (not the shelby) and a 5.4 in the lightning. The 2v 5.4 used to plugs not the 3v. Snap On makes special tools for everything. You can start the plugs with chunk of vacuum line all the same and save yourself 100 on the tool truck.

    it accualy has the normal f 150 engine not the cobra one. Its a sweet truck but all it is is a new body kit and new suspension, i rather get a tuned up taco.
