Hello All,

Proud to be a member of the forum here. For about a year now, I've wanted to take an 11+ Ecoboost F150 and do a Raptor conversion. Ideally, I really like the style of a 2017 and came here for some tips, advice, and information on doing this conversion. At the minimum, I'll be doing a lifted first gen Ecoraptor, and want to hear some thoughts and opinions.

I'm no newcomer to building vehicles, but this will be my third or fourth salvage rebuild. My previous vehicles have just been clear title builds -

My previous Lifted Avalanche LTZ:




625rwhp CTS-V Coupe:






A 573HP Supercharged STS-V:




A 584HP BMW M6:




My last salvage build was this custom turbo GT86 FR-S:

But anyhow, on to the new project. It is a 2011 F150 Platinum 4x4 Ecoboost 4x4 shortbed.












I've been looking for one wrecked like this for about a year. Platinum with the brown interior.

I'm currently a vendor for fiberwerx, and looking for some other options.

Is anyone aware of a 2017+ Raptor front end conversion yet? How about a 2015? Any experience with it, quality etc? Look forward to building a pretty bad ass F150 and cant wait to start my build thread and hearing from everyone.

Welcome to the forum looks like you have your build all figured out. If you decide to get rid of the running boards on your truck for something different for your build. I would be really interested in purchasing them from you, Thanks.

There was a guy over at f150 forum who did a 15+ raptor swap on a 09-14 model with the headlights and everything. I believe it was posted in the offroad section over there.

Are you from northeast ohio by chance? I recognize the truck and the cts-v... pass these vehicles all the time near Cleveland Power and Performance.

Well guys, here it is, in the shop, we peeled everything away, replaced inner and outer tie rod end left side and a lower control arm. Somehow the spindle was straight. it is on its way to the frame shop now. I must be in God's good graces, it wasn't hit nearly as bad as it looked.












I did have to order a factory hood, fender, upper and lower radiator core support, and front bumper to get proper alignments at the frame shop. That sucks, but oh well.

The fun stuff was ordered thursday. I got from fiberwerx:
04-14 Ford F150 Fenders Conversion To 17+ Raptor Style - 4" Bulge
04-14 Ford F150 Fender Extensions For 4" 17+ Raptor Conversion Fenders
04-14 Ford F150 to 17+ Raptor Conversion Hood
04-14 Ford F150 To 17+ Raptor F150 Conversion Bedsides
04-14 to 17+ Raptor tailgate skin

Things I still have to figure out:
Front bumper. This is critical. I really wanted the 17+ raptor front bumper, but with the 4" bulge, even a factory one won't look right. Fiberwerx recommends something fabricated. Any suggestions of anything out there with the new raptor style look, that won't look stupid with the 4" bulge fenders?
Grille. I'm sure there are plenty of options for 17+ raptor style grilles.
Headlights/tail lights - these are simple.
Should I keep the rear bumper?
