Lmao. It's probably shiny because of all of the vaseline he uses.
To be honest, after taking the Bronco out in the sand and saw how it performed, even down a driveshaft, and a burnt up tranny, I'd love to see how well this Raptor actually performs in the sand. Not so much because I think the Bronco is better, but because I've established a baseline. Here again, because I've got roughly 5k in the Bronco, including purchase price...so that would leave me 45k to play with.
Or you could have 5 Broncos like yours with about $7k (went a little high in case you really wanted to go all out) in them and have one for each day of the work week you want to go wheelin and still have $15k you could somehow put in BigRed to soup it up if you want or whatever.........................................................or you cold have this ONE with the nice graphics that one of my clients (sign shop) can do for $150. That's assuming you paid cash for this baby.....because interest will give you 2-3 more Broncos like yours depending on your credit score and interest rate.
That is one thing I have yet to understand. Manufacturers supposedly build a product to FILL a niche....it seems like they're trying to start one here.....Right now it's sitting on the middle of the fence for them and it could go one of two ways. The Raptor could either a be a mild success and make them some good money, or it could be a huge failure and lose them tons of money in R&D as well as design and assembly.
