    2024 build date???

    Order still isn't picked up. Ordered a 37pp "Sheltered" Green with sunroof. Dealer showed me the following holds which may help explain some delays to yall. Seems to be material related. Looks like onboard power, HUD and 37pp are held.

    The 2024 37" Package Ripoff

    Being that the Ranger and Bronco are very new, I imagine the supply chain's teaming agreement, requirement contract, whatever was well in place with the suppliers by the time the F150 call was made. The new F150 Raptor refresh was probably a restart of some of the contracts and someone decided...

    Im curious how it looks up close. People claim you can still see flake and the original color through the ppf

    Shelter Green Satin PPF

    I have been trying to track down photos of Shelter Green in Satin PPF. Just saw this photo pop up on instagram of a Braptor. Thought I would share.

    The 2024 37" Package Ripoff

    For sure. Back in the Gen 2 days, I remember people constantly complaining about the red mark getting dirty and would bring it in for warranty. I never had a problem with any 3 of my Raptors wheels but I dont rest my hand at 12 o clock when driving.

    The 2024 37" Package Ripoff

    I liked it too. I imagine Ford got tired of people whining about it becoming discolored/damaged and asking for warranty replacement. Will probably save a lot of $$$ in reducing warranty claims

    The 2024 37" Package Ripoff

    Go look at aftermarket "comfort" recaro's. They can cost you upwards of $3k for each seat if you have electronics in them. There is research and overhead in anything Ford puts in a car. You have engineering, drawings, procedure files, work instructions, safety testing, etc you have to create...

    The 2024 37" Package Ripoff

    Im not disagreeing with you but all of those things cost Ford money, research, overhead, rates, and a margin. They could save money and not offer any of this stuff for a discount...oh wait thats the 35 package. Vote with your money. Value is in the eye of the beholder. You could pick apart a...

    The 2024 37" Package Ripoff

    I'll be the bad guy here. Not that it justifies the package price but you do get the upgraded dual valve shocks, seats, upgraded carbon accents, tires and "upgraded wheels". It definitely not worth $11k but it's probably north of $6k in parts alone. Tack on R&D, overhead, G&A, and profit then...

    I feel like I need to give up on my dealer at this point. I've had my order in since November and it hasn't been picked up yet. I know this story.

    Hood decals on the 2024 raptor

    I dig the Raptor R graphics with certain colors but the rest of the graphics are trash. Gen 1 splash graphic was the only one worth it. The Braptor graphics are by far the worst

    19 model to 23/24 model, is it worth it?

    Ive had a Gen 2 SCAB and a 2023 F150 Raptor. I wont talk to the performance because most people have laid that out well in the thread. I'll talk interiors though. I think they Gen 2 was more comfortable on the inside. I don't mean comfort in terms of the seat/ride/whatever. I mean it more of a...

    2024 Initial Thoughts

    You probably wont get a 37 at MSRP that is hitting a lot. I can only find it if I order from a dealer. Out of 5 dealers near me, I only know 1 that wont honor MSRP for a non-R. They wont do that for out of state folks but its way easier to find no markup no than it was 1-2 years ago.

    Weird spot on paint by sunroof. Any ideas?

    Did they tint your sunroof? A heat gun left on might cause some damage to the clear. Outside of that its just a paint defect. Get ready to fight that one if you have a shady dealer.

    Official 2024 Raptor R Order & Delivery Thread

    Curious how the ones actually getting MSRP are swinging it. I imagine its long term relationships with the dealer, they have been waiting years, or they just know a guy. Dealer greed seems to get worse and worse every year.

    Official 2024 Raptor R Order & Delivery Thread

    Welp, Im done with negotiating with my dealer over that allocation they had pop up. Their "loyalty ADM" is $20k over and they wont budge. They only get 2-3 a year and the owners seem to use them as a cash cow. Wish I could find a dealer I could build a relationship with to get MSRP. I just can't...

    I ain't broke but I ain't rich. Throwing $20k over just hurts my soul. I know the trucks have been holding value but still I feel like I'm slappin my momma.
