    Transmission Oil Change, Cooler & Pan Upgrade

    First 40K trans oil change. Also replaced the oil cooler with the larger one. And installed the larger B&M pan along with a new filter. Drained 7.5 quarts, replaced with 8.75 quarts + the 3.25 quarts for the deeper pan, for a total of 12 quarts. Utilized a 20"x30" drain pan I had built. Not a...

    Wheel Locks - Locking Lug Nuts Revisited

    Older threads had discussed this but without much conclusion. It doesn't appear that there are locking lug nuts available that match the original Raptor "bulge" seating surface nuts. Gorilla makes some nice lug nuts with the "bulge" style large seating surface (see image), but do not have...

    Fender Molding Color Code or Color

    Scraped my right front fender molding yesterday. Very irritating. Anyone have the color name or color code of the stock Ford grey metallic on it? And/or do new replacements from Ford come that color or do they have to be painted?

    Raptors Not On the Stolen List

    Not a problem or question here. This article discusses the most stolen vehicles. Raptors are not one of them. For trucks, Dodge, Chevrolet and Nissan are the most stolen. Ford is not on the list. Good for us...

    Flag Mount

    Fabricated a better flag mount for when in the sand. Clamps to either front or rear tow loops. Cost: zero, as I had the 1/4" steel.

    Installed Deavers and Camburg Shackles

    Installed Deaver +2's and Camburg shackles over the past couple of days. Was able to remove the stock parts myself, but needed a helper to install the Deavers because of the 95 pound weight of each, as well as the tight fit of the new bushings into the frame brackets. To get the proper torque...

    Updated Navigation Card

    Updated the navigation card today from the original '14 card to the most recent release. Disappointed the new card didn't have updated data of my neighborhood that has been there for years. Don't know who Ford contracts with to update navigation info, but they are way behind.

    Rear Bump Pad Mounts - SDHQ or Forged Offroad

    Spooling up to get a set of Deaver Springs. Which bump stop pads are the preferred ones to install, or is it just personal preference? The '14 SCAB is a DD with 95% pavement usage. https://sdhqoffroad.com/products/10-14-ford-raptor-sdhq-built-rear-bump-pad...

    Garmin 55 Dash Cam Installed

    I'm a little late to the party. Recently installed the Garmin 55 Dash Cam. I am very satisfied with the quality of the video. The cam includes voice activation for several cam functions. It is a very compact size camera, smaller than a GoPro in physical size. The data card is easily removed...

    Perimeter Alarm System DL3Z-19A361-A Install

    Installed the Ford "Perimeter Plus Security System" which included the "Base Security Type A" (part number above) as well as the LED indicator light. I didn't particularly like Fords instructions to tie wrap it to the door air duct. The air duct is not a solid surface to mount a shock sensor...

    Mortorcraft Oil Filter Comparison To Others

    A few years old, may have been posted here previously, but still relevant for those owners that haven't seen it yet. Not very many filter brands that meet or exceed the Motorcraft filter. https://www.ford-trucks.com/ford-manuals/Oil_Filter_Cutaway_Comparison.pdf

    JLT OIL SEPARATOR Hose Oil Buildup

    The hose from the cam cover to the breather builds up an oily film of droplets that, if left unattended over a few weeks, runs down and drips on the cam cover, spark plug wire, and suspension. Anyone else having this issue? In the first image below, although it doesn't show very well, there is...

    I have this on the Maintenance Board, but no responses, so posting it here. Planning on replacing the stock transmission pan with a B&M pan. 1. Does the transmission (6R80) converter have an oil drain plug like most other typical transmissions? 2. Anyone know how much fluid the converter...

    JLT Oil Separator Oil Quantity

    About every 2,500 miles (twice now since install), the separator is containing about 1/8 of a cup of oil. Is that consistent with others experiences?

    Shock Weepage is Normal

    I am probably late to the party. Noticed this the other day. Maybe it's old news for all you FRF salts. The red arrowed entries are included in a multiple page long list of F-150 TSB's.

    Stainless Works Lightning Exit Sound Test

    In the other SW thread I posted information and installation images of the Lightning style exit exhaust system. This thread includes sound tests (very unscientific) of the original Raptor system and the SW Lightning exit style system. The system I installed is a true dual exhaust setup. The...

    Stainless Works High Flow Cats

    I would like to hear from anyone that has installed the SW High Flow Cats (via the header system install), and if you are in an area that tests for pollution in order to renew vehicle licenses, whether the truck has passed or failed the test. Here in Oregon there are two areas that require...

    Instrument Cluster Top Bezel Cover

    Anyone have the part number for the black leather (fake leather) top bezel cover above the instrument cluster that has the light colored stitching? I've got the part number for the cover with black stitching, but want the light colored (grey) stitching so I can dye the stitching blue to match...
