Figured I would start a build thread here since the site I originally had it on went down.

I picked up this 2010 raptor wrecked December of 2019 to fix it and mild build it for a daily/dune toy.

Paid $8000 for the truck and new frame. Plan to strip it all down rust repair/proof the body as much as possible. It’s getting a 2017 front clip for it. Plan to run 37’s on it.

Pictures of when I bought it

















My father was also redoing a super duty when I bought this so I stripped it down some removed the lift off it and collected parts while waiting to get it on the hoist.

Bought a set of 6 dirty life road kill bead locks and a set of 37’s










I found a really good deal on a rpg frame and bump kit $400 the same guy had OEM struts for the front still in the Ford boxes I paid $300 for those also. He also had a add tire carrier I bought fir $400 also

They don’t offer center caps for the wheels I bought so I decided to make some.












I collected more parts... I’m sure my wife/ups driver hated me lol









Some time the end of February I got the frame in the shop and started assembly of what I could

Finally got the truck on the hoist and pulled the cab




Spent the next few days cleaning and painting parts





Finally had a nice clean frame to build on




Next I cleaned and painted the engine etc and drilled out some exhaust studs.




Once that was done I dropped the drivetrain back in the frame and stuffed some long tube headers in the frame rails and built a 3” ss exhaust
