Default New to Ford and Raptor
Bought a 2014 Roush Phase II for my vacation home in CO - first Raptor, first Ford (numerous GM diesels). I've only seen pics of the truck, but it has only 2,800 miles and appears as new. Drove a used 17 and new 18 and didn't fall in love. I read the enthusiasm for the Gen I on this forum and bought one without ever driving one. Since then, a local Chevy store got a 60k mile truck on trade and I went in for a test drive (just to get a taste) - really liked the feel and sound of the Gen I over the Gen II and mine will have an extra 180hp/lbft. Couldn't be happier with my decision. Already talked with JDM to see if I can make the beast a little more wild at altitude - for $700, don't see why I won't. I'll post first drive thoughts when I get it on the road over Labor Day.

Thanks guys. Can’t wait to get out to Steamboat and get my Raptor fired up and driven on some mountain roads.

Shouldn’t have said new to Ford, but first Ford pickup. I do have this little gem in the garage.
