Nicely done, love your use of soundskins. I wonder if they are concerned the Raptor drivetrain under compression may interfere with the bottom which is lower. Not sure I would ever compress my rear suspension that far, but maybe a high speed off road jump may. Or, maybe the DV8 team just haven't confirmed the clearance with the Raptor yet.I installed the DV8 storage box. It said specifically that it would not fit the Raptor but it fit with not modification. I chose to modify the piece in the center. Worked well. My use was to install a Kenwood 110W radio. but if someone needed some extra space its a great item! FYI the sound skins is a great improvement!

I measured, I can’t see even at full stuff if I bottomed out the suspension…. No where it would hit.
The idiot who left that uplifter wire that far back in the back panel might not of even run a wire. Why not bring it to the back of the panel for easier access. I guess that’s asking g too much. I had to pry that whole panel off to find it using pry tools and going nice and slow and STILL broke two pieces of plastic off the panels not knowing they had flimsy crappy plastic welded pieces to the panel that the push retainers were mounted on instead of the panel itself. I would have been better off just fishing my own wire through there. Looks like I now need to order a new panel. Starting at the back those push pins are in the panel itself. No need to think the rest wouldn’t be the same. Never seen anything like this and it really pisses me off.thanks
I got a set of four from Fast Intentions too. You can custom design them if you want to which I did. So mine are like yours but solid lettering. They say, Raptor in the front and the rear ones are just the R. They look great, are perfected color-matched and wear very well.View attachment 9914View attachment 9915
Put these sill plate protectors on from Fast Intentions yesterday. I wasn't sure if I liked them or not so I waited to put them on. I do like them now. You don't even really notice them they seem to blend in which is nice. They tie in with all the code orange and they seem like they protect. Seem rugged. All good. When back in AZ I will be tackling some bigger mods for sure.
There are two companies that sell essentially the same aluminum aftermarket pedal design: Mabett and the TTRR-II. I got the dead pedal one as well but I have the OEM rubber floorboard cover over my carpeting and the rubber mat pushes the dead pedal off kilter due to spacing. So I just that pedal cover out.Where did you get the pedals
OK, so not the most interesting mods, but today I ordered the rubber back seat cover and the the metal brake, gas and dead pedals. It just seems that a Raptor type vehicle needs upgraded pedals as opposed to the standard type. I did not order the paracord handles yet, does recommend them?
I also installed the Mabett pedal covers after reading your first post above. The accelerator pedal cover slides over our OEM plastic pedal, brake replaces our OEM rubber cover, and the dead pedal sticks to the OEM plastic pedal box. All 3 are very solid with OEM appearance. I removed the TuxMat for this photo below as the TuxMat completely covers the dead pedal.There are two companies that sell essentially the same aluminum aftermarket pedal design: Mabett and the TTRR-II.

I put that decal on mine too. The main sticker is intact after about two months but the three vertical strips at the bottom didn’t take long to fly off. 😂2 very simple visual mods installed this weekend. One is a little more obvious (FP via GGrob) and the other being some taillight tint from UndergroundGRFX.
More functional upgrades planned over the next couple of weeks as I’m awaiting delivery of Morimoto 2Bangers from 4x4TruckLEDs for the A-Pillars to go with a DD 30in Combo LED Bar for the bumper. While I’m at it the plan is also installing a fresh set of WeatherPack connectors for all of the Upfitter connections under the hood.
Also added a Raptor Off-Roadeo sticker and relocated my ode to KB43 and all fellow Hoonigans.

The new bigger intercooler does away with the motorized flaps up front and the non motorized ones in the rear for better air flow at all times. The motor that operated them stays plugged in and is zip tied to a bracket so as not to throw codes.nice looking bumpers.
Just curious how does the intercooler breathe? It looks pretty boxed in…
How much did this affect the approach angle?
