In this case SVT stands for So Very Tacky.

  • racer193

    Why would you do such a thing

  • GregKachadurian

    I can't believe he's done this.

  • $kaycog

    That's terrible! Somebody deserves a swift kick in his truck nutz.

    • craigsu

      Your wit is just getting sharper and sharper! Must be a really good batch of drugs lately.

      • $kaycog

        I'm going into my fifth year of hanging out with you guys. I'm learning. 😉

  • Number_Six

    What an ass donkey.

  • dukeisduke

    Oh yeah, that's gonna be useful off-road.

  • At least this can be fixed.

    In other news, I just drank a Surly Furious. It needed no fixing. Yum.

    • jeepjeff

      And when they put "Never Off-Roaded" in the ad, it might be half-way believable. Then you can fix it and flog it.

  • Van_Sarockin

    Such an elegant way of letting people know that you drive a truck, but have absolutely no use for a truck.

    • Jay

      Like somebody was gonna use that as a work truck.

      • JayP2112

        I see a guy in Dallas with a Raptor with ladders in the back and a sign on the door.
        So that guy did.

        • calzonegolem

          If I could justify getting a Raptor as a work truck I would

        • Jay

          He must also be one of a few people in Dallas who actually needs/uses the pickup he's driving : )

      • BobWellington

        You don't have to use a truck as a work truck just to use it as a truck. Off roading and towing ATVs/Boats comes to mind.

      • IN THE FACE!

        There is a white one in my town with a diesel tank in the bed, its a construction foreman and hes always hauling a bunch of other random stuff in the bed as well.

  • CherokeeOwner

    What he said.

  • Joe

    Hey, lots of off-road guys have a second set of wheels for daily-driving.

    • …but so few off-road guys drive Raptors.

  • RichardKopf

    OK, seriously, where the hell is Tonyola?

  • He's the Raptard King.

  • Off with his head. Sacrilege. For the second time, I spied a Raptor with bling wheels and a lift kit (not as bad as this, but almost) in town the other day, no sign that it had ever been off the pavement or ever will. Save the Raptors! Free them to escape the suburbs and roam the desert! Shit.

  • thebloody323

    People like this need to be sterilised so that they can no longer pollute the gene pool.

  • This is my new avatar, for maximum ironics.

    • chris

      irony because even with the giant wheels, i can't see anything in your tiny avatar pic?

      • craigsu

        You can if you hover your mouse pointer over it to embiggen.

  • Also: when the rapture happens, please, Lord, send this monstrosity to hell, whence it came.

    • Van_Sarockin

      Like the bumper sticker says:
      "In Case of the Raptor, I Will Still Be Driving This"

  • I hate people.

  • failboat

    I agree this is stupid, But if there ever was a suspension able to smooth out the ride on rubber band tires…..its probably the Raptor's

  • rikkers

    De'Antwon's 4×4 and Offroad Shop produces another gem!

  • CJinSD

    Yesterday I saw a Rolls Royce Phantom on those wheels outside of Bruegger's Bagels. I suspect whatever piece of trash was driving it picked it up on a salvage title, but it is still an expensive luxury car that has been made to ride and handle like a worn out NYC taxicab. Brilliant.

  • pj134

    Yeah, this wasn't expected at all from the types I see driving Raptors…

  • MVEilenstein

    I have no words.

  • JayP2112

    My son and I have a game in the car where we say the name of a cool car- "Ferrari" or "Challenger" before the other sees it. My non-car kid nephew was with us and I spotted a Raptor. He said it looked cool and would "look good with a lowered suspension".

    The lad had to bite his tongue from laughing.

    • BobWellington

      Did you punch him in his mouth for uttering such sacrilege?

  • BobWellington

    I can't even comprehend how stupid you have to be to do this. It's disgusting, but oh well…at least he's funding Ford so they can make more Raptors, but then again maybe he stole it…

  • tempesjo

    Those rims need some beadlocks to complete the look.

  • Mr. Smee

    Seeing this more and more here in Edmonton, usually driven by Hockey-Moms. I don't get it either.
