    Bought a new 2018 Leadfoot Raptor 4 months ago. It broke down the day after I bought it. Pressed on gas and it would not go. All kinds of computer warning lights. Replaced throttle body. No help. Finally bent cannon plug on computer. Problem fixed.
    Now I'm driving along around 40 to 50 mph and I get a whooshing noise followed by a loud clunk from the engine area. No computer alerts.
    This happens intermittently. Hope I can get it to a dealer before it blows.

    That's why I still have my 2010 5.4, one of the very first ones made in BLUE.

    Hi new here I am in the market for a 2018 or 2019 Raptor, I was going to order one. Seeing this post concerns me, is the 3.5 no good? Also dumb question can I just order one and pay the sticker price, looks like every Raptor I find is priced 5k over sticker. Is ordering one not an option anymore? Thanks for any help!

    People pay many different prices for raptors. Yes dealers in my area mark them up $5 to $10 over window sticker. I have owned 11 raptors in my life and I pay window sticker or less depending on how many raptors my dealer gets. Good luck on your shopping because some dealers think they are made of gold!

    Hey guys just jumped on this forum. I saw that Rock had issues with his truck being shipped. The dealership told me I would have my lead foot raptor between the 15th and the 19th of this month. The dealer called me today and told me it had changed and well be delivered between the 19th and 23rd of this month. My question is there anyway I could look up myself on where it’s at on the rail? Thanks for the help guys.
