    I bought a 14 back in dec 19’ and have put 30k miles on it. I use it as a work truck to haul glass and large windows and doors, often pulling trailer. No issues but I do change oil and filter around 3500 miles. I also went thru a set of brake pads. I tried the super duty brake pads from motorcraft and so far so good.

    Best daily I've ever had.
    I've put 23k miles on it since I bought my 3rd one last year 1 year ago. Prior to this one, I was averaging 20-25k miles per year on my older ones.Take it anywhere. Family trips, long trips etc.
    We have an expedition but this is our go to truck when we all go somewhere.

    It's comfortable, soaks up minor bumps well, handles well for a 6k truck and has enough power to pass(Gen 1).

    Only way I stop fully DD this truck is if I go full retard on suspension and get another truck to split mileage.

    I daily drive mine, I work in construction. Commuting any where from 100-250 miles a day. I go to the mountains on the weekends too.

    Had a GMC Denali z71 1500 before this and the raptor shits on the Denali for comfort for long trips, short trips, to the corner store for a 12 pack, off road excursion. Literally anything you put this raptor thru its comfortable as hell and a blast to drive.

    haven't put enough miles on my 2020 raptor yet to talk reliability but from what ive noticed is that its an f150 but. built way tougher. Ive haven't seen anyone with any significant issues unless they caused them their selves.

    On the flip side, I've never daily driven mine, is just my "go places" truck, go travelling, go offroading, go to the beach, go visit friends, go pick up supplies, go get a hair cut, go wash the truck. Everything but take it to work, not once. Always had a company vehicle.
