I’ve been saying for months now that this sucker has vents in the front fenders. You could see them on all the spy shots of it driving, where the baggy cover thingy is sucked into them. No one said anything. Then you see them in the first tease video Ford released. Again, no one mentioned it. I fact, I actually had someone tell me I was seeing a shadow. 🤦‍♂️ Now the new video is out, and you see them clear as day, and again, not one mention. Are people just missing it? What’s going on? I’d think people would be all over it.

What are your thoughts
Personally, I freaking love them!

I noticed them. But I'm not in the market for the Raptor so like everything else when it comes to the Raptor I was like, "Huh, okay."

I'm a lot more interested in that beefy tire carrier.

Are the functional?

Ehh, it don't even matter, really don't care about Raptors. Let's focus on cars they should be making well before talking about something most people can't afford and won't be getting

Others have notice them. We’re just waiting for the full reveal.

plus like others said Raptors are not easily attainable so after the initial hype the average joe isn’t that interested. I def want one but since I can’t get one at MSRP I likely can’t afford one. I’ll be content with a Badlands then ☺

As soon as I saw the title, I knew it was you. Hope all is well!

Those vents are rad. Forget the haters.
That’s funny Thomas. But am I right? No one is talking about them. It’s so weird to me. I pointed them out to you last month, so you knew about them. But why no one else has seen them, or mentioned them, I don’t know. When you watch these YouTube review videos about these videos that Ford keeps releasing, they talk about everything but the vents. And you’d think it would be mentioned. Vents on the fender are so out of the norm for these Broncos. It’s such a major piece of body work, and it’s nothing but 🦗.

The F150 Raptor has the vents so everyone I think just sort of shrugged and lumped in it with standard Raptor things... I know I did.
