I assume Santa is a TT member with an anonymous account, so if your are reading this, put me down for one.



















On second thought, never mind, I would never qualify for anything other than.............

Niiiice!
Would have loved one of those when I was younger. We thought Z-71 was the "jumping" suspension pkg! 6.2? Do they offer Raptors with an Eco Boost yet?

No Ecoboost in the Raptor, only the 6.2

My new '13 Platinum has an Ecoboost though..........love this truck!
(No pics with the boat yet, but they should go together just fine)

Simsy, what year Wrangler is that? I have a 12 with the new Pentastar and an x2 on the way, have been wondering how it will do around town. Also changed out the factory hitch for a class 3. Single axel trailer so I'm around 4500 lbs. Just curious.

Forget "Eco-boost" - I want it to have "go-baby-go" button...connected to...

My biggest concern would not be the overall weight around town, but the tongue weight.
Not sure how the single axle trailers are biased for tongue weight, but the X2 is really nose heavy on a tandem trailer. It'll squat a F150 pretty good.
You might be surprised on the overall weight too. Bet it's greater than 4500lbs unless the boat is stripped out. My X2 with 4 tower speakers, 3 amps, 2 big batteries, full tank of fuel and all the misc crap is well over 5k lbs with trailer. For some reason the X2 tows "heavier" than it's bigger brother the X15. Can't remember the weight exactly, I rolled the scales once after fixing a flat there.
Might look at some TImbrens or something to shore up the @ss end.
