    Same. It was hard for me to justify the extra $15-20K for a Gen 2. I bought my Gen 1 with the plan that it would "hold me over" till the Gen 2's dropped a bit more and there was more of a used market(or I just started making more money to buy a new one:rotflmao:). I like it a lot though so my plan has pretty quickly gone out the window and I'm gonna hold on to this thing for quite a while

    I have not....yet. I’m just waiting for the right one to pop up(white and fully loaded) I did manage to test drive one last month and I’m fully set on buying one soon. And people were right this truck is in a league of its own, the zr2 and trd are nice but for one not roomy enough, second not enough power.

    Nice good luck in your search!

    I know there were a few white Screw's for sale on here recently if that helps. And yeah these trucks are truly awesome, I'm all smiles every second I drive mine.

    ‘Used abused’....there are a shit ton of Street King Gen. 1 Raptors out there, they’re not hard to spot. The ones that are beat to shit really stick out and have tell tale signs of abuse. My 2012 is going on 7 years old with 68,000 miles, people are amazed of the condition....Street King solid

    Get a sport tune on 91-93 octane and the truck really wakes up.
