Very happy with it! I was holding out for one in the Velocity Blue but this one came in Magnetic Grey and I fell in love.
That's quite an upgrade from the Colorado. I thought you didn't need a full size truck.

Have fun.

I definitely don't need it but I can't spend it when I'm dead and we were fortunate enough to have a good 2018 and I got a pretty good pay-raise and title change just before Christmas so it (in my head) made sense!

Took a quick photo when I got home from work. Really enjoying it so far. The 10 speed box feels phenomenal, found out today it was actually co-developed with GM.

Strange, my company had a good 2018, my title changed, yet all I got was more work. I think I have the wrong boss.

Whenever I see a Raptor, I can't help but think of that video...

So a company actually thought this bed covering looks good. And there will be people who agree! It doesn't even align properly with the Raptor's bed sides.

Flare-side pickups have gone the way of the Dodo. When was it, like the 90s , when any of the big 3 offered a flare-side?

The F150 flareside was discontinued during model year 2009, when the supply of boxes ran out.

Never did understand the need for a flareside, other thank aesthetics. The utility of having steps on the sides that allows for reaching over and into the bed is overriden by the decrease in interior volume.

The only pickups with the flareside style that look good are the classics, like the Chevy 3100 and 50s Ford F100. Back then flareside was the standard factory model
