    While still not a V8, some exhausts do make the Gen IIs sound pretty nice:



    This is the exhaust I ordered for mine.

    That sounds pretty good. I can hear the wastegate or BOV in that video too.

    I'm really looking forward to it. It doesn't have the raspy quality that a lot of the aftermarket exhausts for this truck do. And they didn't go out of their way to make it sound "like a truck rumble". It's much closer to the Ford GT sound, in my opinion. Which I'm cool with, because race truck.

    When you install it, post a video. I would like to hear/read actual customer reviews.

    Absolutely, man. I've been talking with Corsa for a couple of months now over this and I'm getting one of the first production units they have... next month. lol.

    Nice! The Borla exhaust sounded good in their videos. But I would like to hear real world stuff.

    Ford Performance online rep said a VIN has been assigned but they won't give it out online. I have to request it from the dealer.

    Request it from the dealership and then periodically put it in here:

    About 10 days before it's built you'll be able to download your window sticker.

    I agree. I worked at a Ford Dealership recently and was very disappointed in LB when it started coming out on cars. A little too teal for my taste. Magnetic is beautiful.

    I love V8s, but Ford made the right call with the Eco-Boost, no question. Congrats!

    I saw a LB 17' Raptor this weekend and loved it. I'm happy I went with it.

    Glad to hear! Different strokes for different folks. I know a lot of guys that love the desert sand color for last gen's Raptors and I personally couldn't stand it. Who knows? Maybe LB will grow on me and when it comes time to pick one up, end up with an LB one. I'll shoot you a message if that's the case. :thumbsup:

    After seeing both the blue and the red in person, I'd have probably went with either one of them over black. But since I ordered mine before they were out, I went with the "safe" choice I knew I'd like. lol. I'm glad you're happy with it, man!

    I'm debating dropping the $2k Raptor Technology package. I really don't care about lane departure warning/lane keeping/auto cruise control.

    The auto high beams and rain sensing wipers are nice, but I think I'd rather spend that $2k on a bumper or Toyo MT 35s.

    Having the the module/cover behind the rear view mirror (covering up the abomination of wires back there) is worth the $2k.

    The dealer told me he submitted the change but since it was scheduled for July he wasn't sure it would go through.

    Dealer confirmed he was able to remove the Technology Package for $1950. Good news for me!
