    Out of Round METHOD Wheels.

    Honestly, if you installed a front lift at the same time as a set of inexpensive aftermarket 20" wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson tires, I'd have been more surprised if you *didn't* have a vibration.

    Best Winter Tires for Gen2?

    The stock KO2s are a no brainer here because they are a Severe Snow rated tire.

    ok mall / street rats.....what millage are you without doing the shock rebuild?

    Money and time, the same things you gain by not paying for anything unnecessary.

    ok mall / street rats.....what millage are you without doing the shock rebuild?

    This is the kind of thing you have to take with a huge grain of salt. My truck is mostly street driven, I'm around 55k miles, and I can't imagine paying to have the shocks rebuilt simply because they manual says to do it at 50k. I'll do it when they leak or I notice that they're worn out, just...

    Honesty.. Nitto Ridge Grapplers

    Are the Nittos rated for Severe Snow? If not, that alone would be a dealbreaker for me.

    For all this money...

    Looks great, I'm looking for something similar. Did you install it yourself? What was that process like? They were an option on my daughter's Honda Ridgeline.

    Waterproof, secure tonneau cover - is DB the only option?

    I’m extremely pleased with my Retrax XR. It feels very secure and almost no water gets in—the only reason anything might get wet is because of the way the bed and the tailgate fit together at the bottom.

    Graphics package question

    They were separate options. My truck is the same way and the bed graphics are the only missing option. I did peel the hook stickers off after they failed within a couple years--don't regret it at all.

    Gen3 Towing capabilities

    The payload and tongue weight is usually the limiting factor: Overall towing capacity: 8200 lbs - 6450 (trailer) - 50 (WDH) = 1700 remaining capacity Tongue weight capacity: 820 lbs - 658 (trailer) - 50 (WDH) = 112 remaining capacity Payload capacity: 1400 lbs max (my Gen 2 is only 1079) -...

    Yep, it's a given so I'm not sure what answer anyone is looking for here. I could feel a difference in handling just from installing a RetraxPro and bed rack--I can't imagine how crappy my Raptor would drive if I tried exceeding the payload/hitch/towing capacities.

    There's no way to do the math on this that doesn't result in that trailer being way over the payload/hitch/tow ratings of the Gen 2 Raptor.

    Temporary Plate Expiring...

    Titles and registration are a nightmare for out of state vehicle purchases right now. I bought my Raptor in December '20 and didn't receive plates until July '21. There is a company somewhere out east called RegUSA that handles a lot of this paperwork for dealers and apparently the whole company...

    Rolled my 3 day old truck

    I think it will likely be totaled as well but one thing that has changed in the last few years is that it takes so much more damage to consider a vehicle 'totaled' any more. Seems like it used to be 50-60% damage would total it out, but I just had a car with 72k damage that the insurance company...

    Stolen - 2019 black CCSB - from driveway

    Damn, sorry to hear--seems like a lot of Raptors get stolen. Unfortunately I disagree with everyone hoping that you get it back. The only thing worse than having an expensive vehicle stolen is getting it back. Once it gets taken, you do NOT want it back.

    Newbie towing question-please advise

    I wouldn't do a long tow of an X5 like that for exactly the reasons you mention, but no doubt there'll be any number of people scoffing that the limit means anything.
