Hey Colby, sorry I never posted a response... I had started to but had to leave before I was done. I do like the switches up top, gives kind of a cockpit feel. In fact, I am super happy that they put them up there! Kind of a cool vibe. FYI: just so there is no doubt, I like both the gen1 and gen2. Would have bought a gen1 if the tranny was not so sluggish. That's my only gripe. In the gen2 I have zero gripes! I drove it to Raptor Assault and the mileage was reading 38 mpg. My lightning never did that for me! Gas mileage of a v6 in a small car with the torque and power of a v8... I AM SOLD! I am even adjusting to the fart can sound... even better is the sounds of the turbos! Still in the honeymoon phase... LOL!
