    Yeah, even though they cannot sell it to me tomorrow, they brought it over to my house to tease me, LOL

    That 8 year warranty is pretty sweet!

    The 2 19's I was looking at are $73,600 down to $66k and $68.6 down to $63,250.

    Id pay a bit more for a 20 with a warranty for 8 y ears.

    I concur. The 2020 model is the way to go.

    might as well wait for the 2021. It will be heavily discounted

    paid 47,500 for a 17' with 29k miles. loaded out

    it's a cool truck. just in no way worth 65k. new or not, no matter what options it has


    warranty's= the only agreement where you pay up front but the other party gets to make a promise you can only hopefully cash in on later.

    rather have more money off upfront any day

    Depends how you use it. I never ever bought extended warranties as I agree with you. But on my GEN1 I did buy a Ford one for $1750 because I planned on off-roading it. Best investment ever. They have probably done over $15k in work through that warranty. If you have this truck to be a street queen, probably isn’t worth buying.

    There is only so much money in these things. Only way dealers will tack on more is rebates--which could come next month, but not counting on it. Truck sales are actually pretty strong still.

    My dealer (Maxwell Austin) is at $7500 off all day everyday on '20's. Has like 18 in stock.

    Actually I would think the opposite. Most guys who are serious about offroading wind up throwing mods at their trucks. We are all aware of the main performance mods people do w/ these trucks & depending what you believe/who you ask the potential for a warranty void situation is there & only ratchets up the more extensive the mod. There's a thread on here where a guy had his warranty voided on his front diff grenading b/c he had eibach front springs. So I wouldn't be recommending that as a rationale behind buying an extended warranty at all.

    That being said - I only do occasional mild off-roading (new engalnd logging roads/gravel roads/open field type stuff), but do use the Raptor as a truck towing utility trailer/jet skis/load up w/ stone/mulch in bed etc. I run a GH tune - and I DID purchase an extended b2b 100k warranty. WHY? Well my last GM truck had the factory nav/infotainment system rendered esssentially useless, touch screen interface malfunctioning etc. I researched & found there could be a number of fit/finish/design issues w/ Ford trucks especially in terms of body welds, water infiltration, pano roof issues, etc. ALL those dumb little electronic/trim issues that don't necessarily impede the use of the truck as a basic vehicle, BUT make driving it outside of warranty when something like that fails quite annoying as your shelling out $$ to repair a non-wear, non-essential, non-mechanical expense BS part. Like a window regulator, a coolant line, a turbo actuator, an infotainment screen, a pano roof panel, an LED light with moisture penetration - ETC.

    While never happy about a mechanical failure, alot of times when something like a tie rod or ball joint or part of the brake system fails just outside of warranty - I at least get some "enjoyment" knowing I'll be replacing the failure w/ an "upgraded" part or doing a new mod. A bad cat outta warranty may be an excuse to splurge on down pipes or upgraded turbos, a leaking pano roof or non-functional steering wheel buttons? Thats just a BS PITA - one that I'd be glad I have a warranty for.
