I am not a truck guy, but I love this. A truck you can buy and with minimal modification go out dune crashing in. I also like the use of the new Hurricane (BOSS is too confusing of a name) V8. Now Ford needs to do what they originally planned and put the thing in the Mustang (with some DI insanity).

I like it but I'd have to change out that ridiculously ugly Ford script in the grill.

At least it isn't in chrome. The truck itself looks pretty badass, I'd love to see it in action. Also it's good to see that SVT is coming back.

I had my doubts about this truck, but the more I think about it and now see these photos...svt is officially back. This truck actually makes more sense than the Lightning, and knowing svt, the warranty will not be voided for "playtime" :D

I'll say this right now. Ford is not allowed to go bankrupt. This is made of pure awesome.

I especially love that grill, how bad ass is that!

Mostly my feet, occasionally a Tesla
Normally I would say this thing is about as useful as a snooze button on a smoke alarm, but the Texan inside me screams loudly with the backdrop of a NASCAR V8; AmericaTexas, fuck yeah... Imagine turning up for a tailgate for either a NASCAR race at Texas Motors Speedway, or a Football game at Tech (Suck it, Longhorns :p) with that truck sporting a gun rack and two kegs of beer in the bed... :wub:

Yes but the fewer people who can immediately tell it's a Ford, the better.

Nothing wrong with driving a Ford.

Wow, I didn't think they'd actually build it. A pre-runner with a warranty? That is motherfucking awesome.
