Kinda disappointed the Raptor finished last to the ZR2 and Power Wagon. Anyone else think this review is legit?

I think it is. Its based upon the terrain. Raptor lives for hammering the desert. Power Wagon cannot hold a candle to that, but is good at a lot of other things. Zr2....I dont know, with those tiny tires hard to believe. Take them all to Nevada and I bet you have different results.

Most likely the additional weight in the Ram is what made it feel more planted on the loose terrain. The Raptor's extra power probably also made rear end more skittish. But just guesses on my part.

Interesting... I have to wonder if the tires are the limiting factor.

Regardless, it finished how it finished.

I accept the Motor Trend results. However, considering WHERE I LIVE (rural Kansas) and WHERE I DRIVE (combo of pavement, sand roads, pasture, CRP, etc), I'll keep my Rap. Probably not headed to the northeast part of the continent any time soon.

Well considering I live in the northeast I consider these results ridiculous as the power wagon handles like a 2500 series truck the zr2 is small as shit and would be useless to me ...add 300-400lbs of sand in the back end of any truck for the winter .... good to go

No one should be surprised - we've got two threads on the Raptor's messed up rear end already. Offset shocks, a ton of unsprung weight, and a light aluminum bed that has to be too lightly sprung.

Most of it can probably be remedied with Deavers and a few hundred pounds in the bed, but if someone in the after market would come up with a cheap and easy way to reverse the shocks, they'd make a mint.

"Cheap" is relative, but: http://www.rpgoffroad.com/product/20...-shock-mounts/

I thought RPG had a kit for this?

Notice all of the images are set up to make the ZR2 look the same size as the Raptor & Ram. In actual size, the ZR2 is the same size as a Tacoma and looks like a toy compared to the full-size trucks.
