    Went shopping for a 2017 Raptor but brought home a 2013 Blue Screw Roush with low miles instead, saved a bunch of money and I feel like I didn't miss out on anything, still an amazing vehicle. I would appreciate any input on what the first mods should be, I am working on replacing that horrid Sony stereo!

    FYI, I am from Phoenix AZ.

    Thanks.

    Howdy, clean looking truck. As for mods start with mid perch adjustment then wheels and tires, bumpstops, Deaver +3's, bumpers , lights , tune, pedal commander, etc, etc,.......warning, it'll never stop!

    Started working on the stereo, found out it's not stock after all... it has no Subwoofer box which is why it sounds odd. I found behind the seat a 5 channel amp, Helix DSP pro and all speakers are Focal components. I really wish I could thank the previous owner for installing such a quality system! Now I just have to buy a subwoofer box for under the seat, can anyone recommend one for 2x 10" speakers or a single 12" sub?

    Next I noticed a large transmission cooler in front of radiator, can anyone confirm this isn't stock or part of Roush upgrade?

    First time in the dirt, truck is amazing off-road especially at high speed!

    Question: locked rear makes steering feel like it wants to go straight or slightly left all the time?? Does mid-perch help stiffen front end, also would it be possibly to do top-perch up front and mid-perch in the rear? Kind of a budget lift?

    Mid -perch and rear drop shackles for level. +2 rear leafs. +3 if you will have weight in the bed. Aftermarket leafs are one of the best suspension mods you can do.
