    I would swap that into your truck asap - would be much more fun!

    Major engine issue after owning my raptor for a little over a month

    I completely agree. Something was badly flawed in your original engine, and I would ask for a COMPLETE replacement. I would not accept less. If they don’t do it, be prepared to trade this off immediately post-“fix”. You don’t want this one. So, there were probably other extenuating...

    Just sold my GMC 2500 HD Denali

    Was your 2500 gas or diesel? I have an L5P (no 10spd) and it is deleted… absolutely fantastic truck. I have had 2 6.2 Raptors and both are great for reliability and will run long term with minimal regular maintenance. I did have two versions of the 3.5 ecoboost and was unlucky with both. For me...

    Rebuild Gen 2 with V8 Conversion & 5-Link or Gen 3 for $25k-$30k over MSRP.........

    I would definitely start the process for going the 5L SC route so that you are preparing. That will be a fun truck! I test-drove a Roush SC truck and it was incredible.

    Fulltime 4wd?

    Correct me if I am wrong, but AWD does not mean that all 4 are powered all the time. I understand it to be in 2WD unless slippage is observed by the computer (front wheels then engaged).

    Graphics/Decals or not?

    I went with no graphics. I am not a fan of stickers.... and these R graphics are WAAAAAAAYYYYY over the top.

    Raptor R Daily

    I will be daily driving mine as well. I only go to the office 3 days a week (max 150 miles total per week), and my part-time job at my fire department is only 4 miles from home. I will be giving up my diesel truck for this, so I will also be hauling trailer and loading the bed with landscaping...

    Official 2023 Raptor R Order Thread

    @MDJAK, the only reason to get the R is so you don’t have to get the ecoboost. Ford failed at this since 2017 by not offering another choice. Had they offered the 5.0 and the ecoboost, I bet many would be surprised by the take rate of each. Interestingly enough, the tremor now has the 5.0 and...

    Official 2023 Raptor R Order Thread

    Sell it in a heartbeat. Does it make you wish you would have predator swapped this truck rather than eco it?

    Raptor buy decisions - Help

    You will want to look at the plastic oil pan on the 17 for cracks and leaks. The mid-2018+ went back to metal due to the plastic pan performance. Both trucks have the questionable cam phasers, so check history on each truck. Make sure you do your homework on that cam phaser issue, and what costs...

    Cam Phaser rattle AGAIN - 3rd time

    Sounds like someone traded this in due to the cold start rattle. The dealer did the recall like you said (program), but never checked it after. The program was only to help keep a non-rattler from rattling. Yours must have been rattling prior, and needs torn down now to fix. You are outside the...

    $109,145 Starting Price

    Do they make you sign a contract saying you won’t re-sell for profit?

    Ford Raptor R July 18th Video

    what's it worth?

    I assume this is a 5.4 truck… value is only around $24k at best. Had this been a 6.2, you are looking more like $38k+.

    Cam Phaser rattle AGAIN - 3rd time

    Hmmm.... sounds like you did everything exactly how Ford wanted you to do it. Interesting to see the latest CD parts now have failure.

    Looking at buying a used raptor - tips advice?

    So, the extended warranty for cam phasers only applies if the program was updated first. I believe all of that has expired anyway, so I would think you are on the hook for when the cam phasers fail.

    Blown Turbo at 130 miles

    Turbo failure is not common, but there have been several problems on this forum with blown turbos.

    TPS with Beadlocks

    Exactly correct - it is a frequency issue and you need to find what your factory sensors were so you get same on new ones.

    V8 Rumble

    Here you go - even has my POS Taurus SHO that I was able to escape… traded that junk in for the RST

    GEN 2 Problem ID / Another Transmission Post

    I could not agree more with you… finally we agree on n the plastic pan is garbage.

    V8 Rumble

    I have actually had 2 gen 1 trucks. I had a 6.2 Harley F150 before those and loved it too. I also own a deleted diesel, a 6.2 Tahoe RST (just returned from 2k mile road trip and hand calculated 21.5mpg … cylinder deactivation REALLY helps!!… average speed was 71mph on that tank too!), and a...

    V8 Rumble

    I think it is more like anyone having anything negative to say about the build quality/design/recalls/TSBs on the ecoboost engine is a Sasquatch. This R forum is for those of us who now will have a new engine selection and get back to enjoying these.

    37 Package at MSRP after SuperDuty Fire

    Sorry that happened! You may want to just get a cheap replacement vehicle and wait until we get past all of the supply chain constrained builds, Covid parts, Covid build quality, inflation, etc. A new vehicle at msrp or over is not a wise investment as the recession is right around the corner.

    Need advice

    I would go for it and feel good about the spend. You will get a great truck that will be problem free for another 150k miles.
