    2019 hit on right front, $29K repair woes...USAA sucks!

There is a place not far from me that is constantly selling repaired Raptors. Most often ads read that they...

    2010 SVT 5.4 Exhaust Manifold help

    Not a Raptor... But did an older 5.4 in an earlier Expedition, and remember taking the front tire and plastic fender well liner out. Even though it was a pain, had access to the head studs that way. And the exhaust pipe hook up was got at by laying on back underneath. I recall getting the...

    IWE Vacuum Hose Replacement

    ^ Once I took a few minutes to look over what the line sets actually are, I just used some tubing and zip ties and replaced it all.

    Took a hit in Baja

    Co-worker recently had bedside on his Ram done. It was an insurance repair and included some minor repair to cab corner, bill was just over $15k. Didn't look like nearly as much sheetmetal damage as yours, but needed bedside none the less. Good luck with repair.... or fiberglass

    GEN 1 Mystery Dash Reading - What IS this?

    I was going to say "pause" also after seeing the icon in the pic... Maybe you can engage that mode once of the ground and see if "hang time" holds... :)

    IWE on a 2020 Rappy

    Even just before replacing mine, I had a VERY difficult time hearing any noise at all. Only time I would notice from the driver's seat was with window down and slowly driving next to something that the noise could echo off of; like a guard rail, fence, hedge row, something like that. Otherwise...

    6.2L gen1; Name this noise please?

    I'll have to keep the purge valve in mind for myself if I the need arises... I was going to mention that I had an exhaust leak a long time ago that I was sure was valve train. Studs were ate away, manifold had cracks, and broken section of manifold would "slap" the head. In case it doesn't turn...

    6.2L gen1; Name this noise please?

    Anything going on with the serpentine accessories/drive? Might try running for a few seconds without belt to see if noise still there or not... About my only guess from the video.
