Call me crazy. After spending days on different sites and youtube I decided that the Raptor was not for me. Yes I could keep it and flip it but my dealer said it would go to the next reservation holder on his list. I have no reason to not believe him. I don’t want to flip it because I feel that would just be rewarding someone who hasn’t waited as long as most of us. I am able to keep my place in order of my reservation date and upgraded my Wildtrak to the HOSS 3.0 I had a wonderful time on this site and hope that everyone enjoys whatever vehicle you end up with.

It's had the opposite effect on me. The more I research it the more I want it! I can only hope that your dealer will do the right thing with it, but unfortunately, I think we will see it sitting in their showroom with some crazy price tag on it.

I feel the same way as Dragoon. I had a Wildtrak on order and got the golden ticket. I didn't think the BRaptor was for me either and was going to pass on it. Then I got to see it up close and get the skinny on it at the King of the Hammers off road event right about the time the golden tickets were issued and it changed my mind. I'm all in on it now and really looking forward to driving it.
You can't go wrong with the HOSS 3.0 Wildtrak either. It's an awesome machine. Maybe we'll meet one day and do an adventure run. (y):cool:

The BRaptor is the better vehicle when you consider the stability and power. It even has a better seat. The Wildtrak with the HOSS 3.0 was just a better fit for my needs. I would have loved to keep the BRaptor but in all honestly it was just too much vehicle for me. When Ford announced that we could get the HOSS 3.0 that was what changed my mind. Would enjoy meeting you on the trail one day, you’re just have to slow down to keep me in you mirrors.

Sorry to hear you declined, but thank you for your consideration and respect to all of us reservation holders. The world is a better place if we try to help one another. Thank you and I sincerely hope your dealer honors your wish and provides the opportunity to their next reservation holder in line.
