Thought I would share my first week of owner ship with my TRX. So far has been amazing and has blown the doors off the 2 1st gen raptors I had and 3 2nd gen raptors . Long story why I had three 2nd gen raptors. The trx just seems like the lambo of off-road trucks .
Pros:
•Thing is a effen monster
•Everybody is amazed when they see it including raptor owners .
•interior fit /finish is amazing with the trim 2 pack and red accent package . Best truck interior I have ever been in .
•feel like your king of the road

cons
1. Gas mileage but hey we all knew what we are getting into before we bought it lol getting around 290 miles out of a tank at 9-10mpg (will be buying a gen 3 raptor super cab with a eco boost for daily driving)
2.slight ticking noise I’m now experiencing like a few others , will have my guy who does my pro touring stuff on my oldies look it over before going into a dealer to give me tips on how to approach the service rep (also cut them resonators out ha)
3.the stock tonneau cover, crap quality but will be changing it anyways

so all in all I’m so damn happy for you guys that are Recieving soon or stuck in D status land . You guys will not regret the purchase ! Happy TRX’ing

You make me glad I didn't get a tonneau cover. I'm waiting for the Raptor reveal as well!

Let us know what you find out about the tick!

Forsure! If I’m willing to bet it has to be the exhaust touching metal on metal somewhere or the super charger pulley system and being cold . My Ford lighting was the worst starting it up during In wintertime in a non heated garage , also my procharged c6 vett I used to have . Will
Keep you guys in the loop !

Let us know what they say. Kawaskum right? Randy Johnson? If so, best around. You are in great hands. My two cents - I think you are ok.

Yes sir! He’s recently did some work on my 67 Camaro and have nothing but good things to say about him ! So I know he will do a great job getting the resonator pipes cut and pipe welded in .
Have you tried to launch it yet?
not yet lol , I’ll let her break in fully before a launch or for first service in case something goes haywire then dealer blames it on Launch lol . I don’t trust dealers very much

Awesome! Thanks for the update! Can you update us regarding the ticking noise once it has been diagnosed?
Congrats on the TRX. Looks sick!

Hi @BMF702, we are excited to hear about your first impressions of your new truck! That being said, we would like to further discuss the noise you are hearing from your engine. Once a dealer appointment is in the books, please send our team a private message with your VIN so that we may further assist.
