What, please is a frame cut dovetail rear? Sounds like a h o o k e r @Oldfart hooked up with once. Or twice. ;)
I believe only he can comment on that………….


Frame cut front bumper and dovetailed rear to increase approach and departure angles for the vehicle.

I‘ve been privileged to have owned all 3 gens.
Gen 1 loved it but had issues with it. (1 of the valve springs broke in half and was creating a serious vibration in the truck) also was a giant gas guzzler…
Gen 2 was a beast no issues and had well over 100k on it. Highly recommend Cobb and goose tune as it really opens up the truck.
Gen 3 just purchased about a week ago and am loving it so far. suspension and interior upgrades are amazing. Also sounds far better than the gen 2. Deciding if I should go with 37’s though because with leveling kit the 35’s almost look too small under the huge fender wells. Any thoughts?

As you may have seen there is a thread here with the OP swapping to 37s with zero other mods and said no issues at all.

I go back and forth which one is the best. Gen 2 looks the best. Gen 1 has the most soul. Gen 3 is the best truck but seems a bit sterile. No endearing little bad habits that make the others seem a bit edgy.

Shane361 100% atleast for me. Love the Gen 2 body Gen 1 all the way though. Sorry guys. If you haven’t seen Born in Baja about the original SVT Raptors check it out on youtube.

Gen 3 is very impressive in person. That’s why I bought it! Suspension is unbelievable.

^^^^I think this says it the best. My buddy picked up a blue gen1 long ago and ever since that moment I knew I wanted a raptor. fast forward quite a few years I got into a gen2, which I love and we both admit is the "better" truck of the two. I have only seen the gen3 in passing on the streets, but I would guess that the same holds true, the gen3 is the "better" truck of the three.
