First, Congrats on soon owning a Raptor! I would tell you to read up on Gen1 and Gen2, unless you have made up your mind it will be a Gen2. There are a lot of differences, most debated is the motor, or lack there of in a Gen2. Two items that were on my truck I could do without. The moon roof and the front camera. Good Luck on your search, I hope they are taking orders for you on the Gen2.

Having owned all brands in the last 10yrs. The Raptor has been my favorite truck and the one I kept the longest. (60K miles, 2011) I have not had any major problems and it is still a blast to drive and pull my crawler. 2017 will be next Raptor, already ordered and assume it will be equally as fine.
