    Grinding and rattle coming from the engine when cold starting. Very loud and got progressively worse.

    Congrats on the Gen2! Badass trucks, no doubt.


    I noticed you went to Ken Grody in Buena Park.. o_O
    I can pretty much guarantee you were taken to the cleaners by them paying that fat dealer mark up. They are absolute clowns and the salesman are trolled off of FRF any time they try to advertise with their ludicrous prices.

    1-2 months back I drove by out of curiosity and Ken Grody offered me $800 more than what I paid for my Raptor NEW, if I sold it to them used with 6,000+ miles on it :confused:.

    They sell these Raptors at a ridiculous markups here in SoCal, its what they do. There's a reason they're sitting on 20+ Raptors still, some they've had for months..

    Anywho, paid 1,500 under MSRP for my Oxford White 18' Screw.
    Delivered to me from Plainfield, Indiana back in April ;)

    Congrats on Yours. :) My first Gen 1 was Oxford white. I am sorry you had a bad experience at Grody. Ive been a long time customer since 1997, and safely more than a few cars. No, i did not pay a ridiculous Mark up. And yes, they have a few they are not turning. I check the website too. But, i know they are selling 20 ish/month, so they turn them. They are the #1 Raptor Dealer in the USA, and #2 or #3 overall Ford in the country as well. So they must be doing something right. I know Ken from my many times there and would not buy my Fords anywhere else. Great service guys, great performance shop, and many of his employees have been there for many years. Yes SoCal Markups really suck. But that is the market. Specialty cars tend to hurt the wallet. I am dreading the day the new GT500’s come in.

    Very nice! Congrats!

    I wouldn't want LeadFoot on a car, but man, on a truck it looks perfect!
