Hey guys/gals just picked up my new to me 2018 Rhino hawk. Loving this thing already! I traded in my Raptor and am so glad to have a daily that’s fast and handles well again. I am from Dallas Texas but I’m in Cali most of the time since I work out here. I have a 2014 Whippled wk2 that puts out 690 at all 4 wheels and I love it but its hard to daily since its pretty aggressive. The Hawk is really nice as a daily. I hope to get to know all of you well!

Welcome to the gang. U picked the right color.
Thanks! It was the only color for me. Took forever to find one with the deal/options I wanted that was slightly used.

Looks like it’s already lowered. Get you some gorilla lug nuts if you don’t like the chrome ones. You plan on modifying?

And Powerstop Z23 brake pads if it doesn't already have them.

Welcome aboard.

what Raptor did you swap for the hawk? I got rid of 2014 whipple stage 2 raptor. there are a lot of guy dumping raptors for the TH. Where at in CA. I am in Sacramento with 2 other guys and we have a San jose guy also (NorCal)

Welcome to the club. My DD is a 2013 Roush Raptor. 590 HP, but nothing like the TH. Enjoy your new ride.
Are you on FRF website at all?

I went to get the new Raptor and just couldnt like it. Looks I love but the fact the play fake motor noise even though I couldnt tell it was fake just bothered me bad. that and I knew the new one wouldnt be as fast as my 2014. I left the dealership all said not knowing what to do when my buddy told my the trackhawks were 13K off sticker. that made it just cheap enough for me to get one. I am glad I did but I miss that truck a lil bit, I am hoping something crazy comes out next. I also hate the fact that every 2 seconds I see a new Raptor going down the road. Never seen another with my 14.

Yes - I was on the Raptor board, but have not been there in a while. Just to busy I guess. Plus, mine is a daily driver and was not interested in modding it at all. Mine is the extended cab fully loaded in Terrain. I still get lots of looks and thumbs up, especially from kids! After sorting out some issues the first couple of years its been and still is a good truck. I can surprise a lot of cars!

Congrats and I agree this color makes the beast even more unique. It took me as well quite a bit of time to find mine (wanted black wheels with upgraded black interior and tow package). They only made about 300 Rhino. How is yours equipped?
FYI you can buy the Dodge black lug nuts for $20 so no need to spend $150 on this item. It left me more money to spend it on mods and with over 1,000hp it's truly amazing on streets

I think it’s still stock ride height. Yeah the chrome lugs need to go for sure! I’m looking at some packages from Demon, Forza etc so I’m hoping to get some advice from you guys. I did a full build on my SRT so I have some experience but the Hawk is a different beast.

For sure all that brake dust on yellow calipers is horrible!

Interior is the black alcantara suede. Same as I had in my SRT and it’s the one I prefer. I like the full leather but I daily mine and drive crazy so I need it to stay put... Traded a 2017 Gen2 Raptor for it. I’m in San Jose also! We should all meet up some weekend.

Thanks! It has sunroof, Harman Kardon, black suede. No tow package yet but I will add it soon just in case I need it.

What shop/package did you go with?
