It's like making John Cena wear heels.

I can't speak for GEN2s, but my GEN1 logged 4 round trips from northern Alabama to northern Nevada in the course of my household move. I moved my whole shop (welding rig, table saw, air compressor, etc.), two motorcycles, and household goods for a 4 bedroom home. My experience is that the Ford Raptor is VERY capable of real work.

Riding the bump stops the entire way.........

If you are carrying a lot of shit, the Raptor is the wrong tool for the job. A couple bags of mulch causes the rear end to sag.
