    Also use 4A if you know you’re going to be on loose or wet stuff if it bothers you to get squirrelly

    A couple others have said it but Deaver springs were night and day for my truck. I did the +3 HD On my truck as I have a leitner designs rack and some crap always in the bed. No more hop on expansion joints and recovery is much quicker when the rear does side step- on purpose or not.

    It sounds like your friend is a poor driver. We all want to think we can drive like Ken Block, but the reality is that we’re all pretty mediocre at best. Respect the weather and road conditions, and if it feels a little squirrelly like you’re describing, then you need to back off some. Eventually you’ll figure out how fast you can get away with driving a particular stretch of pavement.

    Ah, another Greater NYC Gen2.. damn, I'm seeing too many of y'all out there.. When I got mine in 2/2017, I think I was the only one in the entire tri-state.... LoL
    No worries Amantay, Gen2 is a solid truck, not saying Gen1 wasn't but Gen2 has a much wider footprint, with the truck weighting almost 6,000 Lbs with driver only (300lb driver, lol), it would be pretty tough to loose it quickly like a 2000 lb small car would. Just as this truck is really tough to drift, it can, really well in the rain. As what most members had posted, check your tire pressure and threads. If you tend to push hard on the truck, the threads on those tires will go very quickly.

    Great advise...
    If anyone one need a great driving lesion, head down to SC, the BMW Performance Driving School. It would be money well spent.. Yes, they will teach you to drift.

    Who the hell told you this????

    The Raptors stance is the same from 2008 to 2020
    It still remains the same "The Raptor is 7" wider than a standard F150"....

    Thats the way vehicles without much weight over rear axle act. They like to hop around on big bumps. Every pickup ive owned has done it.
