Forged Off-road rebuilt my Gen 1 fronts and Gen 2 rears. Their turn around time is fast, the work is quality. Disclaimer: they will never answer their phone, and rarely answer email. If that doesn’t bother you, you’ll be in good hands.
The only reason ADMs exist is because people are STILL paying them. If consumers stop playing this stupid game of grabbing their ankles and paying ADM, dealers would go out of business OR actually STOP charging ADM.
I second the canister purge valve. My 2012 was giving me a weird idle when coming to a stop AND every time I’d fill the truck past full with fuel, the engine would idle rough and stall out 2-3 times before finally starting and driving correctly. I swapped the purge valve and all problems went...
Love the GFC idea. Wasn’t in my budget though. I opted for Rightline gear bed tent. Sets up with the tailgate down so you get 7 feet of sleeping area. When I’m transport mode it’s no larger then two 1 gallon paint cans stacked. Weights less than 10 pounds including the fitted mattress and sleeps...
Checking back to see the latest ADM willingly paid in excitement. Is 25k the highest bidder? Come on, there’s gotta be someone out there with deeper pockets… it’s a Ford guys, these are worth 200k easy. Lol
No order, but if someone can prove that they paid a $100,000 ADM I’ll zelle them $25 for some Starbucks runs. You’d be kidding yourself if you think this truck will sell at MSRP without some major dealer connection. I suspect $30,000 minimum ADM. But $75,000-$100,000 ADM won’t be uncommon.
Ko2s last about 21k miles before turning into slicks. They also measure about 2”-2 1/2” shorter than the stated sidewall size. I’d only buy BFG if they came with a second pair made by general or nitto for free.
Not sure yet. Trying to convince the wife we need a real Gen 1 raptor but gas in so cal is almost $7 a gallon so it’s a tough sell. I can’t be without a truck for too long so we should be making some big moves 1st week of July.
I’m happy to hear some honesty. No offense taken. I always felt the stock look was a little to basic for my liking. I do wish it was an easier swap to get the center mounted shifter. I looking into it but there’s a lot involved.
That’s fair, I always knew the na v6 would make resale a little tougher, but wasn’t aware it would be like this. I was hoping to find someone who wants the big tires and raptor “look” but also the better mpg of the smaller engine. I know 16ish mpg is pretty hard to attain with the 6.2 on 37s...
