Great read. Love it. Very entertaining

I was a Gen 2 owner. Great truck and served me well for 75K miles. I’ve got about 3 miles on my TRX in one month of ownership. It’s friggin’ awesome. As advertised. And yes I stop for gas often So what. If I wanted something economical I would have bought something different.

Funny how most who trash the TRX and their owners have never driven one and have never spoken to one that owns one. News flash!!!!! We’re the same as you and many came from a Raptor. Most of us don’t go off-road and take our trucks to get coffee. Just like all you!!

Seriously, you want to know what a TRX owner looks like, look in the mirror.

I don't get why so many people get so bent out of shape when it comes to the competition of the car/truck in that class. News flash guys, there will always be someone faster. I agree that if given the opportunity a lot of Raptor owners would love a TRX.

Hell, my first muscle car was an 09 SRT challenger. Loved that thing and it was bad ***. Moved on to pick up trucks and daily drove 2 F150s (2014 & 2018) for 6 years for about 150K miles. Fast trucks never made sense to me even though I loved the styling of the Raptors. Then the TRX comes out and I was blown away. Decided to take the plunge into a sporty truck and weighed out moving back over to Dodge and getting a TRX. Decided to hold off and got my Gen3 about 3 weeks ago. 1k miles in and I LOVE the thing. Could only imagine how bad *** a TRX is. Although I always told myself I wouldn't daily something that is so easy to speed in. Now I'm pretty sold if there is a V8 Raptor - im getting it.

To be fair - I have a Lamborghini SV Roadster & S63 in my garage that I treat as my go fast cars. But I have not driven either since I got my Raptor.

I respect a humble man who truly knows thy self. Lol..

That license plate ring would actually be awesome if it had unicorns and hearts instead of skulls and crossbones.

And yep, a blown V8 over an eco boost all day! Unless that eco boost is sitting in a ford GT. See? Still subjective.
I’m putting the rainbows/unicorns on the hood. Duality of man and all that.

They shoulda put a v8 in the newest fgt. It’s heresy for a ford gt not to have a v8. I win again!

:cheers: Nice stable and all very true....funny is fast is relative....I have a V12 in my garage and while the TRX is fast it's not "that" fast!....and I too hardly drive it since getting the truck....

Truuuuue!

A flat crank V8 like the European cars would have been sooo nasty.

The bigger issue here is you getting coffee from ****** Starbucks. Get your coffee somewhere that supports first responders and America in general.

u must get your news from juan valdez homey....

frankly, being new, i find that so many of you go through a corporate drive thru for "coffee/milkshakes" to be the bigger surprise...

and im a long haired gen2 owner....
