Winch should be wired directly to the battery. It is on its own fuse and it’s pretty easy to spot, as it will use very large cable and it activate without the remote, but you can always free pull it.Hello everyone,
I recently purchased a used 2018 Raptor with about 58k miles on it. I purchased it from a dealership and got a smoking deal on it, including a free lifetime powertrain warranty. Unfortunately, this meant I wasn’t able to speak with the previous owner about the mods he did to the truck and the salesmen at the dealership didn’t know all the details.
From what I can see (and I’m not mechanically inclined at all) I have seen the following mods:
-RPG perch collars in front
-Deaver +3 in rear
-SVC adjustable bump stop
-spare tire relocated to trunk bed, Warn winch installed in its place (no remote included)
-Cobb cold air intake
-KC Pro6 light bar
-BuiltRight bedside rack system
Every Aux switch in the truck was labeled, but so far it seems only the KC light bar is still connected. I’m not sure how to get the winch on and operating, as it did not come with a remote and is fully encased under the bed. There are also aftermarket lights (unsure of brand at this time) on the rear bumper which I cannot turn on. I have attached photos of the switches, take a look and see if they ring any bells.
I’m also not sure if the truck is tuned or not. There are several holes in the dash under the steering wheel which lead me to suspect there was a pedal commander or something similar, and the Cobb CAI make me believe it may have been tuned. I’m not sure if the dealership would have reverted that prior to selling.
I’ve also driven the truck about 600 miles, and my average MPGs right now are 13.7. I obviously didn’t purchase the truck as a commuter, but with current gas prices the average has me slightly concerned at this point. Looking around posts on here, it seems like people either get similar to my MPGs or get around 18 MPG. I have talked to Gen 2 owners who claim to get 19-20mpg, but I don’t see how. I’m wondering if the lift, skid plate, and light bar on my truck are making a significant impact on my MPGs. The truck has brand new 35” KO2s.
Regardless, I love the truck and am super excited about it! I just want to get to know it more thoroughly.
Thank you guys
Mpg is hand calculated?
I would have calculate it first. 600 miles is one tank of gas. The ECU won’t calibrate that quickly if it was idling a bunch and has been on many test drives it was most likely getting 8-9 mpg for a while. Mine gets 17 on 37s at 34psi.
