    I replaced my serpentine belt, the idler pulleys and the belt tentioner ( the pulley was toast). Now she purrs like a kitten, well not as quiet as Ed's gen 2, but no squeal. :)

    Steve, if your not planning to upgrade your stock shocks soon, I would as least set them to mid perch. This would be my first mod if I were starting again.

    The truck has 118k miles so it was time. But, some water may have gotton in there on one section of road which was flooded out. Plus it's so easy to do and now she purrs.

    Just ordered a new belt, idler pulley, and tensioner yesterday. Mine is squealing pretty bad. I just replaced one idler pulley last month I should have done it all then everything altogether was under $100.

    Hey all, Just wanted to say thanks for a great couple of days. Tracy and I really had a good time and thoroughly enjoyed everyone. What a great group of people. I had to shovel the mud out of the driveway after hosing the dust off. BTW, just drove 38 hrs to Utah for the Ford Performance Training School. Raptor day tomorrow, Mustang GT350 day on Friday, then on to Albequerque back to Pa. for a few days then home to Maine to hibernate mid month. Hopefully things will get straightened out with NMW so we can join you all again next year.

    Merry Christmas and happy holidays to the best damn bunch of Raptor owners!
    Let’s take a moment to remember those we have lost..
    Pat and Craig ...your Raptor friends will solider on in your memory.
    Keep your fingers crossed for a good result from the NMW. I have a back up route planned for 2018 if we have to avoid certain areas. The DIRTY DOZEN CREW will march on!
    What do you guys think about
    “Where Raptors Dare”
    For DDV????
