Your Ride: 2013 Ford F-150 Raptor
Girls just wanna have fun, am I right? One of our readers, Skyler, knows how to do just that — in her 2013 Ford F-150 Raptor, that she modded herself. Living in a small town, it's the perfect ride to take on and off-road. And not to mention her brand new Mustang GT to go along with it. Here's her full story: How did you acquire your ride? I’m just a girl from a small town that loves her truck. My Raptor is my daily driver, my horse hauler and my off-roading beast. Over a year ago I made the best purchase and brought home a tuxedo black 2013 Ford Raptor SCREW. At the beginning of 2014, I discovered there were two other identical raptors in town. Immediately, something had to change. It started off as a quest for “new wheels” and something different. Lots of the work was completed by Texas Motorworx in McKinney.

What drew you to it when you bought it?
I went to pick our custom 2013 Mustang GT CS edition and saw this truck on the showroom floor and fell in love immediately. We came home with both :)
Does it have a name?
Usually Its just referred to as SKYL3R, since that is the license plate.
What do you feel like when you drive it?
Its the greatest vehicle I have ever driven, it makes me happy to see it in the garage every am and I love looking back at it as I walk away!

What you would change about your car, if anything?
I need 3.0 shox with coilovers on the front, it would be nice to have an entire suspension setup like ICON has.

Dream accessory for it and why?
The other thing I would really like is to have an entire audio system for the inside with multiple subwoofers and totally custom with purple LEDs in the box. Of course, a complete engine rebuild, because I want to go faster!
