Ordered my new Black toy sans graphics today. I liked the lines of the truck as soon as I saw it but waited until I could actually see and drive one before I made the decision to buy. I'd been told that it rode like a 'heavy duty' and more than one article claimed that it was underpowered with the 5.4 engine.

IMHO the RAPTOR rides as good as if not better than my 04 SCAB (given all of that shock travel and tire size it should) and while the 6 spd tranny will take a little getting used to over my 4 spd tranny, I think that the engine and truck will handle anything I can throw at it. I'm sure I'll welcome the 4X4 when the snow and ice hit.

All I gotta do now is be patient for the next 10-12 weeks.
