I would take the Power Wagon any day! That is an amazing truck. Not to take away from what ford did, their truck is nice to, but I am more of a mud, snow, wet logging road guy over a baja guy.

That was a great post man! I really liked how detailed it was about everything. That Raptor is a pretty cool truck for out of factory. I still think the Power Wagon is a little better since it takes more of a beating.

I'm sure it's a rip off but these might be out there.

RAPTOR = OVERPRICED! End of story....I will take the Dodge...and yes I had a DAMN LIGHTNING AND I AM MAD like the rest of the L crowd. SVT went upscale to rape the few who have deep pockets and left many behind......Ford lost my business.

Cool articles, but I rather just stay with the Powerwagon. Still too many questions regarding the new 6.2L Ford engine. I atleast know what I'm getting with the Hemi.
