I got word from my Uncle (who works at a Ford dealership) that v6 motors are being built right now and the 6.2L will be next in line. I ordered my Supercrew at the beginning of this month, but was told that I would not get my Raptor till March or April. Has anybody else heard that?

he might be teasing you. however, there is/was a hold on Raptor builds right now because of an issue with the new Body Control Module being a possible fire hazard. Even if he is correct, speculating when a truck will be delivered is nearly impossible.

I Wonder if the V6 motors are EB Motors ?

Tell them to throw one in your truck and send it on :~)

There's NO HOLD on building Raptors. The BCM issue is done with. Some of the trucks built during NOV 2010 are still waiting to be shipped out of Dearborn, but Ford is pulling and Vin'ing Raptors every week now. I had a 2011 SC Raptor built on Jan 3rd and it shipped on Jan 5th. (no decals, those trucks go to another location to get hood and side graphics installed. this takes a couple extra days)

10-12 weeks is about right time frame for a normal 2011 Raptor order.
