Ford Raptor Suffers Frame Bending Issues

The mighty Ford Raptor is indestructible, right? Sadly, it only looks that way: owners are reporting a drastic frame bending problem that threatens to destroy their trucksand in one case, Ford refuses to honor its warranty.

One owner on the Ford Raptor forums is reporting that a Ford engineer is citing his truck as voiding its warranty, because of scratches underneath and around the truck that suggest ample off-road hoonage. Problem is, the owner claims that these scratcheson the skid plate, underneath the bumper, and around the worn shocksoccurred during a low-speed 4ื4 safety course, something sanctioned by Ford.

The Raptor's frame is weak around where the cab meets the bed, where it must make room for bump stops. Taking the sort of off-road bump at speed, as the Raptor is advertised to handle, has forced the frame to bend sharply on at least 4 other trucks.
