We've been having some drizzly crap for the last few.days.
Truck is awesome! Taking it easy on it for first few miles. I use the paddle shifters in sport mode. Basically closing out gears as I go so that the engine doesn't work hard with boost.
Next trip out I'll get on it a little. Can't get over how much room is in the supercrew. I'm sure if u went back to my Tacoma I'd feel clostraphibic. The truck doesn't have bad pick up even NOT getting into boost much.

Sigh.....
I wasnt considering raptor for offroading. My situation is mostly due to my DIY projects and constant trips to homedepot. Sedan is not a practical vehicle class for this and its been my thinking to buy a truck for a while. Raptor looks really nice and the new model is an improvement.

However, this limitation (if I understand it correctly) isnt specific for raptor but it applies to all trucks. It sounds like all those towing figures are marketing gimmick unless one owns a trailer of some sort, you cannot carry a lot with the bed?

I still cannot understand why the limit for the bed is so low though. These things are extremely tough looking how can a 4 door sedan can carry more than these big ass trucks? The quoted article is talking about under 500 lbs, thats really not much.

Just found out ford has a Raptor run in Utah for the Raptor as well, so you guys with VIN's can sign up for that. I'm gonna take a week off and do a couple days with the 350/boss and 1 if not 2 days in the Raptor as well. I had no idea ford offered this with the Raptor.
