There are ordinary trucks. And then there is the Ford F-10 Raptor series of trucks. The former move you from point A to point B, and haul a decent amount of cargo. The latter are essentially street-legal off-road creations with four-wheel drive, all-terrain tires, and an upgraded suspension system that must be personally experienced to be fully appreciated. Is it any wonder that F-10 Raptor owners are a proud, happy bunch?
If you’re looking to delight and dazzle a Ford F-10 Raptor owner — or if you happen to own one of these glorious vehicles yourself and want to take your machine to an even higher level — then here are three awesome aftermarket accessories worth considering:
Bluetooth Throttle Response Controller
While the Ford F-10 Raptor is a spectacular vehicle, it’s not perfect; at least not out of the factory. For example, some owners legitimately complain of a slight — but noticeable — hesitation in the throttle response (to be fair, this criticism is levied against all Ford F-Series trucks and not just the Raptor). Fortunately, that’s where an aftermarket Bluetooth-enabled throttle response controller comes to the rescue. The powerful, yet compact drop-in module allows owners to fine tune the throttle response to their liking, and many have built-in driving modes that can be tweaked and adjusted as desired.
Upper Grille Kit
An upper grille kit gives any Ford Raptor more aggressive and rugged styling, while at the same time adding functionality thanks to ultra bright and crisp LED lighting. Some kits also include built-in amber daytime running lights, which adds visibility, safety and esthetics. Plus, the 100% bolt-in installation ensures that once the light bar is put in place, it’ll stay there for the long haul.
VenomRex Ford Raptor Wheels
VenomRex Ford Raptor Wheels are made by Vorsteiner, and are rightfully acclaimed and admired as one of the most lightweight and strongest wheels available. Behold these stunning numbers: they have a load rating of 900kg per wheel, yet weigh a mere 28.5lbs each. They’re available in sleep standard finishes (graphite, black and bronze), and many retailers/e-tailers offer custom finished as well.
The Bottom Line
If you’re looking to make a Ford F-10 Raptor owner weep with gratitude and joy — or you want to make your fantastic truck even better — then consider any (or better yet, all) of the above aftermarket options. And then get ready to be the envy of your neighborhood, your workplace, the mall, the football game…basically, anywhere you go.
