    Newbie to the forum here...just wanted to say G*D BLESS THE GRATEFUL DEAD! started seeing shows in 1985 and was able to hit over a hundred of them before 1995. had a 2014 V8 6.2L Raptor and just got my 2017 Raptor a month ago...so far I love it- sounds much different than my old V8 but the performance is MUCH better than the older Gen1...will put some performance upgrades in it after about 6 months of playing around so I can get a feel for how long this one will last and how I like it after the honeymoon period is over.

    Well, looks like all you nay sayers are easily proven "WRONG!" The Gen 2 Raptor is far beyond what the Gen 1 ship anchor can ever be no matter what you do with it. Don't get me wrong, I am a huge V8 fan! I not only own the Gen 2 Raptor, I have a 2003 Lightning in the garage as well. However, those of you who said the Gen 2 would never sale are extremely ignorant or just crybabies as a result of your Gen 1 being blown out of the water by the Gen 2! You keep your ship anchor and I will smoke you in every way no matter what you do to your Gen 1. I love this truck, best truck on the road hands down. The Gen 1 needs a shit ton of mods to even come close but this eco-boost only needs a couple extremely simple bolt-ons and it will be out of reach for the Gen 1 and still get far better gas mileage. As far as Gen 2 sales are concerned, there is a waiting list to get on the waiting list to order one. I am going to buy another one in 2021: by then I bet you will be tired of your ship anchor!
