Can you ask your kid to type that for you?
Comes down to this- when Ford made the plunge to all AL body sheet they had to replace ALL their presses @ truck factories. The steel
Presses couldn’t be converted for use w/ the AL sheet. They probably put a lot of R&D into it....but at the end of the day anytime you make a big change on an assembly line there’s going to be some mistakes. It’s 1000000% likely Ford knows this issue very well.....& has zero plans/desire to fix it. Why? Because very few people buy scab trucks- raptor or otherwise. Therefore It’s an isolated issue - in their minds. Not worth chasing down- maybe next body style will have eliminated it. But....my guess is won’t be an issue b/c they will discontinue scab, what’s the point? You either want a back seat/extra doors or you don’t- who the F says, yeah give me the shitty small awkward opening backseat truck that has diminished resale value over the one w/ big ass normal doors & more room for chump change difference in MSRP? Not very many people. Does it “look”
Better? Eh? Maybe depending on preference.
I think would make a whole helluvalot more sense to offer a bare bones strippy regular cab 2 door version of the Raptor- maybe w/ a damn stick shift even- way more than it does to make a 1/2 ass 4 door scab. All the “benefits”
Of the scab are enhanced by a regular cab- and for decidedly less money I’m sure.
my guess is 3rd Gen raptor will only offer SCREW though, period.
My 2017 SCAB didn't have any rattles and my 2020 SCAB doesn't either.
I probably won't get a gen3 if they don't make a SCAB. I don't need a soccer mom Raptor.
Scabs rule. No soccer mom truck.
My 12 rattled to the point I used surgical tubing in the seals, which helped but did not completely eliminate it. My 19, not enough “having fun time” yet to determine if they will rattle or not.
