    I would say reasonable 80% of us use ours as dd's. I average 5-600 a month for fuel

    I drive mine everyday and bought it in August and has 16K on it now. I love it and the gas is expensive but worth it IMO.

    Well I guess I got lied to from the warranty department at Roush and from my salesman who could have easily told me that the upgrade would "not" void the engine and trans warranty and he could have sold me the 13K upgrade and made more money. I specifically asked the Roush guy if it would void the warranty if installed at a Roush dealer and he said yes, the engine and trans warranty would be voided but the 3/36 covers all Roush parts. Also the 3/36 is non-transferable. That's just what I was told. I'm not an expert on warranty by any means though. I think anyone looking to spend 70+Grand would do their own research anyway. Right?

    Love my Raptor as DD. I bought it last July and have 30K miles now with a couple of 2500 mile trips. I've never had any issues and haven't regret it one second.

    I've seen some forced induction raptors getting the same if not better than what I get in mine. Idk if my the general grabbers are just heavy or what. Moral of the story seems to be that it's more about how you run the truck.
    Honestly if I had 600ish hp I would drive even faster than I do with 400 lol

    I'm pretty sure if you add the full roush kit the roush components are 3/36 if installed by a dealer. Roush sells a power train warranty for an additional fee. If the truck is brand new and roush does the install it is a normal ford warranty.

    If you go with the stage 1 Roush all the warranties are in tact, even extended warranties. If you go with stage 2 you need to purchase the ROUSH 3/36 warranty.

    I just had a 2014 Roush Raptor that was a LEMON and Ford bought it back. I did have stage 1 NOT stage 2. I just picked up my 2014 SE Roush tonight. I also have the 6/100K ford ESP warranty.

    Get the Roush its a AESOME truck. I use mine for a DD and love the damn truck.

    Well I just went through my first tank of Premium in my Roush, and I averaged 9.6 MPG. I am going easy on my truck also, as I consider the first 500 miles to be "break in", so not a lot of boost on that tank either.

    To be fair, just about all of my driving was around town with a lot of stop and go.

    I have no regrets and have been told that my MPG should go up after a while. Even if it doesn't, I love this truck and would buy it again with zero hesitation.
