    For Day 2 of Raptor Week we're taking a look at some of the clever lighting solutions on our 2019 Raptor test truck:

    Sorry for the video and audio quality. The GoPro I was testing left a lot to be desired.

    Are these things selling? I get the vibe the market is flooded with them. They are pretty easy to find. Good for us in a few years when that depreciation hits.

    They are selling like crazy, and seem to be holding their value really well.

    I adore them, but I'm not a buyer unless I give up my cars and move somewhere where I have access to fast off road driving.

    Another reason a Ranger Raptor would be great, the ability to negotiate tighter trails. We'll just have to hold out hope for the Bronco.

    I've had mine for >2 years now, which is an eternity in our household. Still love it, DD it whenever the weather is bad. Multiple road trips, snow, commuting, hauling stuff - it does everything well, and some things exceptionally.

    Man that Ruby Red takes on many different hues depending on light.
    Some of the shots it resembles 68/69 Indian Fire Red.
    Good pics Travis.

    It will be interesting to see where Ford takes it in the next few years.
