Hey you guys running 37’s on your Raptors should call Baja HQ about regearing. Mpg gets better, throttle response, it really helps. I’ve talked to peeps that have done it. I’m waiting to hear back from them for my appointment to get it done next week.
I Thought 4.56s but they told me 4.88s are better.
Anyone done this?
Different frame on the gen3 with 37s vs the truck with 35sI am wondering what the price difference will be to go to 37's? I would think it will be all the same fenders etc. If so it should not be hard to upgrade from 35's to 37's. Maybe there will be different brake set up etc for the 37 option. Either way stoked on it.
Did they make the raptor R in the second Gen? I remember hearing about it for the first gen and not many were built.
Also you get almost a 50hp bump by changing to an aftermarket intercooler even without a tune. The stock Ecu recognizes the cooler temps. Just a couple relatively easy things to do to keep your Raptor kicking butt!
Only thing I don't like in there is the graphics. I can handle everything else. Definitely ordering the 37" package. Anyone see what colors are coming out?Looks like the 37's are going to be part of a "package", kind of a bummer if you don't like blue, and you aren't interested in that other stuff that's included in the 37 package.
Message John Tuba. He has one of the best f150’s out there.Gents,
Semi related Raptor question here...I can't afford an actual Raptor but am looking at some eco-boost F150s. I'm not familiar with the Eco Boost at all and would love to bounce some questions off someone who's got a truck with one (Raptor or not). If anyone is willing to share some insight drop me a DM!
I would not buy a Raptor for towing but if you do, the limitation is rear axle weight and soft springs. It has plenty of power and brakes. I recently did a 3000 mile round trip to buy a custom open stacker trailer which was 6000lbs empty. (For use behind my diesel pusher). Got 15mpg there not towing but only 7.5mpg coming back with the trailer in tow. The eco boost mileage drops quick under heavy loads. And I don’t see any way it can tow the max 8000 they advertise without exceeding GAWR even with a weight distribution hitch. Non Raptor F150 is a much better tow rig.
