    Dust Devil Jamboree Pics

    Met some of the key players or TORR a few years ago when they were in OBX, NC, great group of guys and they know how to use their Raptors! I'm still too afraid to to do that to my beach princess Raptor

    AUX Switches Labels

    I used this link on amazon that I got from on the forum. The link does not seem to work but I am very happy with the labels if you want to research Jay Graphics. As an FYI these labels apply to each specific switch itself versus in front of the switch 2017 & Up Upfitter Switch...

    Need help on 2019 Oil Filter installation?

    I knew that but let it lie as it was not a TRX, Tundra, or best tire shine question. Thanks to all!

    Need help on 2019 Oil Filter installation?

    Thanks, but actually had that part down pat! The Ford OEM seem to thread on easier than the Mobil 1 so I guess I will just stick with Motrorcraft moving forward. I have 5 vehicles and just does not seem that it should be so hard on the Raptor every time versus the rest of the family fleet...

    Need help on 2019 Oil Filter installation?

    Guys, I do not consider myself an idiot though others may disagree. Changing the oil on my 19 SCREW, Fomato valve so not problem draining oil. However it seems it takes forever to get the new oil filter to seat and get it threaded. Obviously I have not discovered the trick over the last 9 oil...

    Back seat gets no AC. Normal?

    From what I have discovered on my 19 SCREW is that I have to take it out of Auto and select the upper vents and then the rear gets plenty of air based on my fan speed selection, the dog is now much happier!

    2018 Raptor rear end squeaking

    Also a follow up question, once we have lifted the truck, power washed and dried the leafs I saw that W-40 and such is a no go but how about the new drying silicone sprays that are supposed to dry, dry and not attract dirt and sand. My off road use is mainly looking good on the beaches of OBX...

    Driving on the beach? Yes/No

    Do it! I own up there and am back and forth all winter but rent it out in the summer. In the summer I run 22psi and will only drive about 5 - 10 miles on the road (speed limits are 45 or less) if needed, in the winter I run 28psi and will run 20 miles on pavement without airing back up if...

    Pics of your A-Pillar mounted lights.

    I am running XL 80s in spots with SDHQ mounts from Offroad Alliance, amazing light. No glare to speak of. I frequently use the amber coveras as I have plenty of white light with the S8 AND 2 pairs of Squadron Pros. Here is running down the beach at nightt with a 300 to 400 yds of vision!

    GEN 2 Keeping Our 2 Crew.

    Keeping my '19, it is just a few months from being paid off and still loving it with 40K miles on it! Mine is an OBX beach princess with a few mountain hunting trails every fall so is otherwise treated like a baby. I would like to test drive a Gen 3 but know I would love it and don't trust...

    GEN 2 Looking for opinions on airing down for the beach

    Thanks all, to answer a few earlier questions - The J.T. Brooks Pro deflators have numbers for the settings which while not exact once learned you can accurately set them and of course then verify. They also seem to stay locked in better due to their design. On the issue of airing back up and...

    GEN 2 Looking for opinions on airing down for the beach

    As a follow up I did look at the JT Brooks tire deflator Pro set and they are nice, really like being able to set them based on a number versus trial and error - just ordered a set. Thanks

    GEN 2 Looking for opinions on airing down for the beach

    Thanks for the reply's, I second the deflator recommendations and use the coyote deflators which I set to 26psi and will just use the guage to take the tires down to 20psi as 26psi is my offseason preferred psi. For the day I have to leave the island I will air back up and then back down again...

    GEN 2 Looking for opinions on airing down for the beach

    Have a 2019 with stock tires and beadlock capable wheels. Heading back to OBX where my house is 6 1/2 miles up the beach, offroad, normally in the offseason I air down to 26psi as the beach is not that torn up, the speed limit is generally 35 mph on the beach and I frequently am on and off the...

    New Owner in Austin Texas

    As it is only 3 yrs and 36K I would think you would not get your money back as you could be past the mileage in 2yrs. Having said that you don't know how it was treated previously and so it could give you some peace of mind in case you find those hidden problems the previous owner knew about -...

    Where do you park your raptor?

    Not a lot of room but it works with about 3" on either side coming through the door!

    Baja Design S8 30”

    Guys, earlier in this thread many posted their various lights shots so I do not want to bore you with that. As stated recently I added BD XL80s Spot to my A-Pillars after previously adding an S8, BD Squadron Pros and a KC Amber sin my bumper pocket. Below is the truck running the beach at...

    Baja Design S8 30”

    I had the same problem, should have planned it out better! After redoing the connections I put the S8 on #1, the XL80s on #2, the squadron pros on #3 & #4, I then put the KC amber fog lights and the S8 back-lighting on #5 & #6. Again props to Offroad Alliance for their recommendations. I also...

    Baja Design S8 30”

    Like a lot have done I started with the Squadron Pros in wide cornering and spot in the bumper pockets along with a KC amber lens. I then added the S8 behind the grill and very much liked them however was still experiencing some concerns running the beach in OBX at night with the stumps and...

    Percentage of raptor owners that actually really use their trucks

    I actually love the question. I am fortunate that my 19' Raptor is a toy that after working for 35yrs I was able to treat myself to. I keep it washed and in the garage EXCEPT when I go to our beach house which is 6 miles up the beach in OBX. So essentially my Raptor is a Beach Princess! And...

    Protecting your Raptor in the Winter from Corrosion

    Greatly appreciate everyone's input! Heading to the Outer Banks in a few weeks and think once there i will wash the underside, let it dry, and then spray it down so that when I bring it back home the smell will be gone before it goes back into the garage (It's home when not on the beach!)...

    Protecting your Raptor in the Winter from Corrosion

    Question on the application - I am not so worried about the winter salt but more concerned about the salt from numerous beach trips though I stay out of the wet sand to the extent possible, how clean do you need to get the underside? Is it good enough to just get under it and spray everything...

    Seeking EDC Loadout Ideas

    Don't disagree with you but depending on where you are when it happens it may not always be convenient or possible to do that. Once you have the kit a simple nail or screw takes less time than it takes to drive somewhere and I have never had one fail, I have had sidewall plugs where I was able...

    Seeking EDC Loadout Ideas

    I have on several occasions, if you have a decent plug kit for around $25 it takes about 5 minutes as long as you can get some air into the tire. Done it in the mountains when hunting, on the side of the road and multiple times in my garage do to picking up roofing nails and screws while my...
