I've had my 2012 raptor for a little while now, I haven't upgraded much, just maintenance for the suspension. A winch is my next upgrade I think. As she sits now she has rebuilt fox shocks, added spherical bearings to replace the old rubber bushings. Also replaced tie rod ends, upper and lower ball joints. And put some new shoes on it after destroying the kos that were on it lol. I replaced them with nokian rockproof tires. And I have 2 say they have been great tires so far way better than the stock tires, just a little bit noisy in comparison. I replaced my original aux lights for brighter and with drls. As for overland gear, my wife hooked me up this year, we got a cast iron set, a camp chef, 0 degree sleeping bags, a truck tent, fire extinguisher, Jerry can, and a tablet running backcountry navigator. More to come for sure. But that's where I'm at now.

Put some new pads and rotors on today, had a little difficulty with the front. Apparently I didn't realize the pads were in backwards but I figured it out with the help of my old lady. Pretty awesome woman I must say.

Well it's not a truck modification, it is an essential piece of kit in my part of the world. It is something however that I have almost no experience with. I have taken a safety course, just doesn't feel like it's been adequate. So I'll have an experienced friend show me. Looking forward to being able to continue down the road when a tree has fallen across it. Hate it when you gotta turn around cuz a tree is in the road. It's going to have a nice little spot tucked in my toolbox. 20190705_210849.jpg20190705_210910.jpg

A winch and or a good tow strap will go along with the new chainsaw quite well for trail clearing. :) Being able to cut and then pull large branches off the trail is nice!

Do you have a static tow strap and a rated recovery point up front? That is usually good enough to pull large branches out of your way. :)

Jaytperry89 nice rig so far! Nice to see another full-size Ford F-150/Raptor here! Keep us updated!
Well thank you very much, I agree so many folks stay away from full sized rigs its almost a rarity to see. I think my next mod will be a winch and winch plate. I'd also like 2 get 2 bigger lights for the a pillar. But maybe I'll build a tray for the tool box, to house the saw and spare parts for it.
