    So I'm making a project...
    Found a clean 6.2 whipple-charged 2010 with 65k miles....really clean truck. I've had a 2012 screw, a 2017 scab, and recently a 2020 screw. I got 3 kids and 4 dogs so I really needed the 2020 to be a screw, but truth be told....I missed the scab. I decided to look for a gen 1 scab and found this one not far away, and it has a blower already...bonus! Planned mods:

    Color change to leadfoot either paint or wrap...deciding.
    Front eibachs with rebuilt shocks
    Boatec fenders in front
    Raptor retrofit headlights
    37 toyo my
    17x9 fuel wheels...deciding which
    ADD lite front bumper and race r rear
    Rigid midnight lights
    Some sorta stereo

    We will see where it goes from here!

    Nice stable and congrats. Seems a shame to paint or wrap the OG Molten Orange; who’s with me?!

    Those aren’t common where as leadfoot is. Just like all the people re-siding their houses in this greige color that will eventually become the new beige.

    Just my two cents that nobody asked for. You do you and as always, it’s a Raptor so you’re already a step ahead!

    I get it! Why I will probably just wrap it for now. We have the dark non metallic primer gray on a few cars so kinda works with my OCD for now:) regardless it feels great to have a gen 1 again!

    Nice and congrats, I'm not a fan of the Orange but there seems to be a following for that color.
    Do you know what Whipple setup is on that truck?
    There are many options for the Whipple, might be worth a look if it's an old setup.
    If you look at my signature I'm up there on HP and still have an old Gen 2 Compressor.
    Whipple now has a Gen 4 compressor for the Stage 2 Whipple setup.
