    Truck is back

    Is there even such a thing as a high mileage taco in NY? Wouldn't it have rusted out long ago?

    3 years, 11 months, and 46,132 miles I finally get Cam Phaser problem

    Mine sounds like yours sometimes, buy not always. I've had the cold start rattle for a while, but have just ignored it. It's getting worse now, especially when truck isn't started for 2 or 3 days. Truck runs fine after starting. Guess I'll have to start calling dealers and try and get it in.

    2019 Mustang GT or 2019 Raptor?

    Have had 2 different newer Mustangs recently, but always found myself jumping in the Raptor, so they are gone. Still have my 84 Mustang which I'll never get rid of.

    Worth Upgrading between 2018 and 2019/20?

    I've thought about trading my 2018 for a low mileage 2020 just to avoid the cam phaser repair my 2018 needs. Not crazy about my truck being torn apart. Only reason I would do it though.

    Cam Phaser debacle

    That's weird. I've never had to add a drop of oil in mine between 5k oil changes. Also have had cam phaser rattle for a while and really hasn't gotten any worse.

    Seat cover wrinkles/Warranty issues...thoughts?

    I would care. You spend that much on a premium truck, and the seats shouldn't be wrinkly. Shouldn't leave the factory that way. It would bug the hell out of me. My 2018 seats are nice and tight, just like over 3 years ago when I drove it off the lot.

    INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY- Join me in investing in our Own Desert Oasis!

    I'm guessing the trailer was there first and everything else added on. That's usually how it works. Lol

    Ford is warning dealers to play nice or lose....

    Yeah, I'm an idiot, but new Tundras look totally ridiculous.

    Throw Practicality in the Toilet. Do It!!!

    I drive a white 2018 Raptor (doesn't look like a work truck to me). Wife drives a 2018 white Cayenne. We live down a dusty road, so best color for that. Also, she doesn't drive my Raptor, and I don't drive her Cayenne. ;)

    Hello, Very new Newbie in Texas

    Thanks for some clarification on this. I have a 7/18 build and have had the cam phaser issue for a while now. Haven't been in a big hurry to get it taken care, but will eventually. Just to confirm, this will not cause any harm to engine if not taken care of right away?

    Payload sticker and other observations

    Great looking truck and appreciate your honest observations/comments about it. I've noticed pics of other new Raptors where the seat covers look a little wrinkly. I would personally be a little peeved about this after spending so much, but maybe it's just me, as I've heard nobody make mention...

    Anyone else hear Fords ditching Leadfoot and Velocity Blue for 2022?

    I know Leadfoot was a color on 2018 F-150's. Test drove one in 2018 before deciding on a Raptor. See a lot of them on the road.

    Maybe not such a bad guy?

    Don't care for the guy, but he has good taste in trucks!

    Sell Or Hold!!??

    Just wondering, did you disclose the cam phaser issue when trading in to dealer, or left it for them to discover? Might trade mine in and thinking trade value might be less if disclosing phaser issue, although they probably would make money on warranty work? Would def disclose issue to a...

    Startup Procedure - truth or myth

    All I know is I do this for every cold start on my 2018 Raptor that has cam phaser issue, and no more rattle on startup. Eventually, I'll get it taken care of. Not crazy about my truck with 15k miles being torn apart.
