    Oh the stupid!!

    Filling my truck with gas and a guy walks over. "NICE truck"!!! Too bad they don't put V8's in them. You probably should have waited, I hear they're bringing one out soon....... (2012, gen 1)

    Towing road trip

    Heading to a black powder buffalo rifle shoot in MT. It took some will power, but since I was towing a 14' covered trailer, I kept it under 70 all the way. I don't usually! Result was 1 mpg better mileage! This is I 90 from SE Washington to Forsyth MT. Virtually not a mile of it really...

    Not really my first choice, but

    Not really my first choice but I think I'm going with Les Schwab top of the line tires. 10 ply, E rating, 3 ply side wall. Good enough specs and good tread for my driving. Less than 10% back country driving when hunting and fishing. My main reasons are really excellent service in my...

    Sparkplugs & wiring done, and

    I felt like my truck wasn't running smoothly. 75,000 on the clock and should not really need anything, but, it wasn't right. Changed plugs, wired, coil boots with new internals. What I found was interesting. I needed an 18" breaker to loosen the plugs. Didn't like that! Every resister was...

    Schwab tires

    Does Les Schwab have any tires worth considering? I'm about to need new rubber and I'm looking around. Schwab has great service in my normal driving areas. That does mean quite a bit to me. They will get any brand but if I should need a replacement, it's more likely to be in stock.

    Motor week

    Motor week had nice, long, video\comments on the new Raptor. The only crap was "the Raptor will give the TRX a run for the money". BS...... It's more like the other way around.

    GEN 1 Want a Gen 1 T-shirt

    I want a quality Gen 1 T-shirt but what I've found are Gen 2s and low end. I have found some quality but didn't like the huge lettering or odd photos. It doesn't seem like there are any vendors on the site. So, looking for recommendations if you have one. Thanks sage

    test shocks?

    I had a set of shocks rebuilt then put off installing them. They've been sitting in a box a little over a year. Is there a way to check them before I put them on? Spooked about putting a dead shock on.

    Not trying to start a P mati, but

    Maybe it's just me, but when I meet a Gen 1 and wave I usually get a wave back. Not always, but usually. When I meet a Gen 2 and wave, 90% give me a WTF with him look, no wave. Very few respond. I'm thinking they aren't Raptor drivers just drive a Raptor.

    Maybe I got lucky

    I just put a new (lightly used) take off set of tires on my 2012. Lucky?? The old factory set went 51,000 miles and had some life left but I'm heading to some BLM back country on a hunt and I wanted good rubber for sure. Lucky?? Those tires were never rebalanced. The front end has never...

    Shock tech question

    Why nitrogen in shocks? I have argon/CO2 for my welder. Can it be used?

    Gen 1 owner but

    I'm really liking the press the gen 2 is getting. Also a lot of love for street performance, speed. The hair dryer sound isn't impressive next to a SC V8, but it helps when it beat them. Must be a lot crow going down! No, I still don't want one, I'm happy as hell with what I have, but love...

    It didn't end

    And the bottom didn't fall out. Just referring to gen one used prices after a year of gen 2's running around. I'd say the gen 1 is doing quite well at holding its value. The high cost of gen 2's plus loony dealers helped too. I think it will continue to hold for quite a while. The only way...

    Tip of the day

    I bought a used set of shocks. They had chips dings and light rust. EXCEPT under the FOX labels. The area between FOX stickers was chipped and dinged. The sticker prevented the damage in that area. I cleaned the area and put rust preventive paint and bought some paint that fairly...

    NO problem

    I thought a thread about GOOD raptors (NO, not a diss on gen2). I keep reading about this problem or that problem. I thought maybe how about NO problems. HOOOTS, 2012 Raptor is about to run out of warranty. I have had 0, NO problems of ANY kind. The only time it was at the dealer was...

    new compressor

    I finally decided on what compressor best fit my needs. It will mostly be in the Raptor, but sometimes I take long trips with a trailer in the FX4. I needed something that was portable. I bought this, a Vair 300P. also got the 30' coiled extra hose. It came in a bag as shown. Performance...
