The New Yorker has a long article on hypercars--those zillion $$$ beasts that can go over 300 MPH.

Prices have finally dropped on higher mileage Raptors. Picked up a 2018 with 93K miles, Blue certified (3mos, 4K mile warranty) + $250 in service points, every option available, $73K sticker - $38K OTD. Drove 19 hours round trip to get it. Absolutely incredible trucks if you don’t need 700+ horsepower.

- Carbon Fiber overlays (helps cover some scratches on a 6 yo truck) *truck does have the C/F option
- AVS front hood cover (also covers some nicks/chips)
- All lights mounted/wired
- Added the FP gen II decals
- Still haven’t mustered the courage to remove the factory Raptor decals

That vehicle has no business looking THAT good inside and out with that many miles on it.

More tacky add-ons:

- Carbon fiber mirror covers to cover 6 years and 97K miles of rock chips
- Carbon fiber vent covers because I clearly have a carbon fiber fetish of some sort
- Hitch tow hook because 2 tow hooks in front and 2 in back are not enough
- Grill covers for my foglights
- Vent shades (fart relief on rainy days)
- Rigid ditch light covers
- Removeable bed tie downs

Coming soon
- Raptor decal to cover AVS logo on hood shield
- New center console lid with built in charger
- Under seat storage tray
- Color matching the running board inlays (already painted and cleared just need to install)
- Touch up paint forged wheels
