Sold my Gen2 back in early 2021 cashing out the crazy COVID values. Replaced it with a new Ram TRX which I sold last October- was an acceleration BEAST but felt like driving a moving truck to me. Then bought a new Camaro ZL1 that lasted a couple of months this year before I sold it also- I honestly didn’t realize the seats didn’t recline fully and, at 6’1 and 200+ lbs, was extremely uncomfortable. Fortunately, I was able to buy the TRX and Camaro right, so I was able to sell them and make some money. Seems like I don’t like anything as much as a Raptor!

That’s said, about a month ago, I ordered a 2024 37 Raptor from a local dealer with an allocation at MSRP in Antimatter Blue. I’m excited about the black Recaros and HUD, but as others on here have stated, I wasn’t crazy about the available exterior colors and am very undecided as to if I like the exterior changes or not. I really wanted a Code Orange 37 with Recaros, but that color will not be available for 2024.

Fast forward to this week… happened to be on Autotrader.com scanning what was out there and found just the truck I was looking for about 2 hours away- it was ordered over a year ago and the original buyer bailed on the order- it showed up at the dealership last week and we are going to pick it up in the morning. Not thrilled about paying MSRP for a new 2023, but have been watching 37 Raptors selling like hotcakes at MSRP across the country… as the old adage goes, “if you want to play, you gotta pay”! This time, as I tell my wife often, I plan to keep the Raptor… I didn’t specify which one, though… LOL! I plan to leave my 24 on order just in case… will decide when it hits the ground whether I like it good enough to trade the 2023 on it or not. I really need to find a cheaper hobby!!!

Welcome back. I’ve had a similar journey, but always seem to land back in a Raptor.

I think it is #SameNumberOfprius. as a Former Rap owner, he really hasn’t reduced the prius inventory, even though he admits to several other failed vehicle purchases.

Anyway, welcome back to FRF!
It’s too bad about your Raptor’s color :p
