    "We're gonna need a bigger boat."
    That's pretty much what I'm thinking about my garage right now...
    Finally got my MY 2018 Magnetic SCREW and she's (1) beautiful, (2) a beast and (3) doesn't fit in the damn garage! Just picked her up last night and will be taking her on the road this weekend to get a true first impression. Goes like *stink* (without trying) and is surprisingly quiet at speed. Since I ordered back in February, this has been a long time coming.

    :)

    Congrats RIP. Too bad about the garage. I couldn't have mine sitting outside.

    Oh, she's not going to sit outside. Just need to rearrange some things and possibly practice Close Quarter maneuvering to get her in the front door.

    I got a case of beer, we can make her fit!!!!!

    Let me know when you get her settled in and i can help you out with some of the Forescan stuff and then you'll really love the truck even more. Plus you can check out some of the JMS options i have on mine.

    Like this? I'm at most an inch away from that curb at anytime in the garage so the Mrs. Can park her Explorer next to mine.

    Hey yall are lucky, I have a three car garage and I cant fit in any one of my spots. I have a 2 car side by side garage that is too short for my truck and a detached single car garage that actually is longer length wise but is not wide enough for my truck, therefore she has to park outside each day.

    To all you Raptor and Explorer owners- after riding in the Raptor does the Explorer feel like you're in a buckboard? Anyone else out there experience this?

    My wife's is a platinum and I'm still not a fan of riding any distance in it. I liked her 13 Sport better. They messed with the drivers side floor and to me made it terrible. She loves it, so what do I care.
