    If you read Kuan’s post everyone of them is negative. I don’t think he even owns a raptor. And it seems every few months or so he or she changes their name and starts over again with the negative post.

    Ignore that clown.

    That is your opinion, and you are entitled to it. However, I sold my SCAB in less than a week for asking price, so was that an anomaly or is there a segment of the market that prefers them?

    I think the supercrew is preferred by most. Just depends on your taste and needs.


    Driving 3 or 4 people often=supercrew
    don't mind an extra 10 inches in overall length (haha)= supercrew


    Had a supercab before and zero issues. I wanted another truck, just not a very large family hauling truck or a ranger either

    I have said it many times in prior posts, the Gen 2 is superior to the Gen 1 in every way, except the exhaust note. It is much faster, has smoother shifting and handling on/off road, gets better gas mileage, has newer interior technology, more driving modes and looks better. I added SPD Turbo Adapters and a FlowMaster FX muffler (among many other performance mods) to give it a nice growl under heavy acceleration and I have grown to like the exhaust note to the point that it no longer bothers me.

    I agree. My original Gen 1 was a SCAB because that is all they offered in 2010. When I started shopping for a Gen 2 in 2018, there were very few SCABS within 500 miles of me and none had the options I wanted, so I started looking at SCREWs. I did not like the longer look at first, but the extra room behind the seats and the 36 gallon gas tank are huge advantages. To offset the length, I went with Geisers, Deaver +3s and 37” Toyo RTs which balances it out quite nicely... :cool:

    If you'll look at window sticker on those, they all have been manufactured around July 2019. That's a long time to be on the dealer lot. I guess that dealer runs a museum of SCAB Raptors.

    I tend to agree those are impossible to sell.
