    I did cam phasers in my garage, and you can too!

    I've got just under 53k miles and mine is finally just now starting to make a noise on start-up for 5 seconds or so. I did just do an oil change this past weekend and they seem to have gotten better though. Am I past the warranty cut off or do I still have time? After reading this post I'd...

    Gen2 Catalytic Converter Availability

    Yes, and I was tuned when it happened. Flashed back to stock before I took it in though.

    Dealer says my 2018 Raptor is only worth $25k on trade

    Here are recent auction numbers (what MMR is based on). Unless your truck is very beat up, you should be able to get more for trade-in. Or sell it yourself and get more still. I went through this with my Audi RS7 back in March/April. Dealers were only offering me 30-34k even though I showed...

    Oil on Driver side Valve Head Cover?

    Well, I just found oil in the same spot (driver's side toward the front), while I was installing Turbo Inlet Tubes last night. 2019 with 47k miles. Is there a TSB for this issue? If my valve cover is cracked is it still safe to drive? I have a 2000 mile road trip scheduled for the beginning of...

    Wrapped 3m Satin Thundercloud

    Looks good! Reminds me of Azure Grey a little.

    Gen2 Catalytic Converter Availability

    My cats failed on my 2019 last December at 32k miles. I was 1100 miles away from home on a work trip. (Engine light kept coming back no matter how many times I reset it). Took it to Ford once I got back and they confirmed it was the cats. But they had to order them... They were finally changed...

    GEN 2 COBB Accessport - Tuned by GooseTuned

    It's time for more power... Where can I find the E50 tune on your website? And I'll also need to buy the fuel tester if I understand correctly? I'm also thinking of buying Turbo Inlet Tubes - Either the AMS or CVF. Will they make a noticeable difference? Do you recommend one over the other?

    GEN 2 COBB Accessport - Tuned by GooseTuned

    I'm sorry if this has been answered before, but what happens if you're on a road trip and can't find an E85 station? Does it adjust if you're forced to fill up with 93? After a year or so on Stage 2 93, I'm ready for more, but that's the biggest thing holding me back.

    Another new guy wants to air bag his 2g Raptor...

    Welcome to the forum, you don't see too many Race Red Raptors out there. Towing is a touchy subject here Lol. Tons of opinions. Yes, stated Tow capacity with WDH is 8k, but that doesn't really account for passengers/bed cargo, so its up if you really want to tow that much. You could end up...

    Line-x rear wheel wells

    Nice! I called 2 or 3 shops here in FL, including one I've done business with before, and no one would touch them. I gave up.

    Overhead Console Accessories Not Receiving Power

    It did turn out to be the BCM, but while they were replacing it they found a pretty big water leak on my passenger side footwell, so they replaced some of the wiring there as well.

    Tow capacity of a 2020

    Not sure if its on your list or not, but get a 170 (or 180) Thermostat to help with the Temps when towing. Fans will come on a lot sooner. If you really want to go all out then get an intercooler as well and get a Stage 2 Goosetune + Tow Tune.

    Tow capacity of a 2020

    No lift with the Deavers. Stock it comes with a 2" Block, the Deavers eliminate it. So +2 (which I have) is stock ride height, +3 is one inch taller then stock. I probably wouldn't go with Airbags, I've heard it's a rough ride unloaded.

    Tow capacity of a 2020

    Besides a WDH, Deavers help a ton. Get the HD ones for towing. No, it doesn't increase capacity, but it helps with the squat. Less squat equals more weight back on the front axle. It also stiffens up the rear a bit (in a good way). I'll also say that when my stock BFGs were getting worn out I...

    (Gen 3 screen) Super Duty dash and re-pinned harness in 13th Gen

    I've been waiting for someone crazy enough to do this! After spending time in the new Gen 3 and a TRX, I feel that the interior on the Gen 2 is making it feel a little dated. I'm not a fan of the aftermarket "Tesla screens", so this is exactly what I was thinking. Hopefully it becomes more plug...

    Upgrading Gen 2 rims

    Depending on what your current OEM wheels are, I really like the beadlock capable 2019-2020 wheels. But the Black Rhino wheels are really nice as well. Plenty of threads on tires here. I switched to Cooper AT3s and am very happy. Another good one is the Falken AT3W.

    Is there a way to make parking lights brighter?

    Interested as well. Seems the Gen 3s are much better. I've thought about adding tint to just the white outline and seeing if it makes the Orange pop more. I don't want tint on the entire headlight.

    Deavers or Icon's?

    I got mine from @Rick at FMS . Very knowledgable.

    Deavers or Icon's?

    A lot of threads discussing this, but I personally went with Deavers +2HD. So basically stock height. No more Axle hop/wrap, and dramatically helped with towing. It does ride stiffer than stock, but a couple of hundred pounds in the bed helps. Depending how often you tow I might even consider...

    Tinting front windshield? Yes or no?

    I can't remember if I did 30 or 50% on my windshield, but either way I can't go without it now. Makes a huge difference with heat. Added privacy is a bonus. Yes, it was a little darker at night, but then again the stock Gen 2 Headlights suck so it just pushed me over the edge to get the Baja...

    0-60 times - how do you launch

    How are you launching? I'm on 93 Goose Stage 2 and it feels pretty quick. My buddy has a Charger R/T and we were basically dead even from a stop. But when I tried it on my Dragy the best I got was 5.79 (5.47 w/ roll out). DA of 2132ft, 82F Temp. And that was in 2wd! 4A was worse. (Maybe its...

    2020 OEM Beadlock Wheel Color Code? (It's not J7)

    I think "Ford Dark Shadow Gray (CX)" is pretty close to it. Could be wrong though.

    GEN 2 COBB Accessport - Tuned by GooseTuned

    After seeing those numbers I want more power!! What's next after Stage 2 on 93 fuel? There's only one station in town that has E85, and it's even more rare to see while on road trips. Any mods I can do before then?

    Road trip with a family of 5 over 3500 miles and 12 days. How does the Raptor hold up?

    One of the main reasons I enjoy road trips in the raptor! People rarely ever cut me off and slow drivers move out of the way more often. Just makes the drive a lot more relaxing.
