So many of us replacing our grilles, you would think Ford would make it an option. Like your truck.
Hi Harry,

I think it might have to do with the Raptor Brand to not make it available OEM.

I get it... But it would be an opportunity for Ford to make a bit more money in their Accessories and options. At some point they need to stop letting other companies make money off of their nearsightedness.

New Member of this Lightning Blue Club. 19 Lariat. North Carolina in the house!

Saw a Lightning Blue Raptor in a parking lot today, let’s just say I had a blood supply to brain issue for a minute. Sweet!

I've Had mine for a couple of weeks now, put the Ford Powersports Fox 2.0 kit on it this last week so the wife and I had to go give it a roll on some rough 2 track up in the hills. It's night and day from the stock F4X stuff, it does not rock back and forth anymore like it was way underdamped on each hit. ( which it was ). Now you get just one movement from a bump/drop. It's very nice. About the only other things I'll change is some rock rails and some 33s. That'll get me pretty much anywhere I want to take this. If I want to bash metal into rocks because it makes a neat sound I have a 73 CJ that doesn't GAF.

Quick stop for lunch,
