Picked up a 2020 LFG Raptor with all the bells and whistles today. Didn't care to have the moon roof but it's slim pickings on these trucks so it has one. It's 99.9% MINT. Found one little rock chip on the front and one little scratch on the right front fender. Even has a remote control powered retractable bed cover. Still gotta play with her as I had to rush off to work but it's hella nicer than my XLT...lol. Moves out compared to the XLT as well. :) Time to start ordering mods :) Nothing crazy...stereo will be wild but everything else will be tame. :)

With the new Gen3 hitting dealers, was there a reason you went with the Gen2?
I had my order in for a Gen3 for over a month. Money isn't the issue, getting one is. Due to Rona and Chips like many it did not get built. I looked all over and everyone is asking like 10k-15k ADM. I won't do more than 2k ADM. Other than the front end, I love everything about the Gen3. I was really excited about the 37" package and upgraded radio. I'll do my own upgrades to this Gen2 as far as the radio is concerned. Came across a reasonable.....and I use that lightly.....deal on this one where I bought my previous 18 XLT from. It was fully loaded mint and LFG which they are not doing in 22. So here I am...

^^This is true.
I emailed my local Ford dealership a couple of weeks ago and they wrote back that it was a 20k ADM for ordering a Raptor. :ROFLMAO::LOL::LOL::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::LOL::LOL::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

I laughed my ass off for a bit, then emailed back to tell them I was all set. lol

Are these trucks an allocation deal like the GT500 cars?
If so,...why is that?!?! Exclusivity?

That shit is absurd. You can find TRX's all day long, many of them going for MSRP or just slightly over.

Frickin Ford... IDK man.,

Congratulations on snagging a Raptor. Looks awesome, and the paint color is nice. Excellent upgrade!

I hear that brother.

I would buy a TRX over the Raptor all day, every day, but no way I could afford the gas bill on that beast. Honestly. I've seen a TRX a couple of weeks ago in the flesh. In the silver color, a color I would have never of picked, but, man oh man!!!! The truck looked so, so good. Sounded even better. What a nasty machine.
Don't get me wrong, I do like the Gen 2 and Gen 3 Raptors as well.
