Hey All,
After having seen all of those beautiful trucks this weekend I am dying to put a few upgrades into my Raptor... so here is the question I pose to all of you. In your opinion what would be your first upgrade? Exhaust?.. Suspension?.. Engine Mod?.. I gotta install some lights up front and maybe in the rear... LED light bar OR spots on a bull bar?? I'm goin nuts wanting to upgrade everything!!! Lovin' it! Steve

Steve,
Je suis heureaux de faire votre connisance!
So many choices....What's most important to you? My first mods were to put in an XRD, (Xpedition Ready Designs), rack system in the bed to tie things down, rear amber lights and hood mount HID lights. I mounted a VHF/UHF radio, and LED bulbs in the reverse lights and 3rd brake light.
The pre-2013 Raptors had weaker frames over the rear bumpstops and were at higher risk for bending there. RPG, SVC, ICON, others make frame reinforcements/pneumatic bump stops.
Many put on cold air intakes and headers for better performance. 5 Star/other tunes are also popular. Super chargers and even twin turbo options are available for the 6.2.
As good as the suspension is in our raptors, upgrading for even better control in the rough stuff is also very popular. RPG, Icon, Fox, King, Bilstein and others have many possibilities. Deaver, National, and others have many spring options.
What do you want to do with your Raptor? How do YOU want to improve yourtruck. Do what YOU think is most important.
Enjoy your improvements. Relax. There's no end to the options available.
And THAT is a good thing!
Bon courage!
Eddie
