    Hey there folks!

    Well, last week I ordered a Raptor. Ingot Silver, Supercab, Lux package, nav, moonroof, new pair of boxers.

    First visit to the site, first time SVT buyer (own a Roush 427R Mustang instead, should pull it to the track nicely, right?). Was wondering what the scoop is on this process. SVT calls you with a VIN# (or does your dealer get the number). since I just ordered last week, what do you guys think my build date will be (please god don't say Febuary). Im reading alot of scary posts here about special sold orders not be fulfilled, etc, whats the dealio?

    Thanks and I look forward to being a part of the Raptor community! Where/when is our national gathering!

    Nate

    Lol, so here's the dealio. 2012 production doesn't start until 4 more days! Say what??? Yeah, 4 days! w00t w00t. But they don't start pulling O/T 1 orders, sold retail, until later. First ones to be built are O/T 2 orders, dealer inventory. Some guys that ordered in September have already received VIN #'s and some haven't, me included. You typically get your VIN 2-4 weeks ahead of your build date and your sticker 1-3 ahead of the build date. Don't get your hopes up for the end of the year but I'm thinking it's really likely you get it by March.

    Also, what's the curb weight on your Mustang? You should check to see if it exceeds the towing capacity of the Supercab. And I didn't know a new pair of boxers was an option for the Raptor. I'll have to call my dealership and ask if I can get that added on.

    Just called my dealer. I might just buy him a steak dinner, he ordered the truck O/T 2!

    Curb weight is just about 3400. not sure what my trailer is, but it surely isn't more than 2600. Tow capacity for the SC is 6000, right?

    As I understood it, there has been a high demand for undercarrage washes and they started offering boxers as an option because of it.

    You will be fine on towing with a 2600-3000 lb trailer and Mustang on board.
    My trailer weighs in @ 4000 + lbs

    28' Pace Enclosed. Don't worry about it. It'll haul it. Do a search on towing review that I did last spring. It'll answer your questions.
