    It's a big job. New harnesses, modules, sensors. We had to do conversions on some of our early prototypes and it wasn't a piece of cake getting things talking to each other.

    We're keeping our eyes and ears open and trying to make the best truck possible. Hard to say what the competition is thinking (besides doh!)

    We used normal air for our work. We don't specify anything different for nitrogen.

    We did up the skidplate strategy for the front. The front skidplate is unique for the Raptor, and the engine skidplate is thicker and more filled-in.

    Thank you. We thought the strategy was the best to come out with. Start out with the well-proven 5.4L, and then follow up with the big boy 6.2.

    I'll need to see if I can find the discussion in the forum about the switches.

    Interesting thought about the HID. We primarily wanted to deliver the chassis that would be capable of off-road performance.

    Forum Members: I think I've made it through most of your questions. Sorry some of the answers are on the lame side, but I wanted to make sure I at least responded, even though I might not be the expert with regard to your specific question.

    Thanks for the opportunity to chat with you all.
