    Consider a 6.2 AT4? Looks (and sounds) cool and probably has more off-road cred than you will ever need..

    Can still tow 9,300lb with a reasonable payload (unlike a raptor). Drivetrain will be ridiculously strong for half ton towing. I found the squat very reasonable even without a WD, with a proper hitch it’s a solid tow-er. If you need to town anything substantial I find it very hard to seriously consider a raptor, the drivetrain isn’t the problem the truck just isn’t seriously setup for towing.

    My buddy who bought a raptor 3 months ago who I told not to because raptors are a PIA to own, is already trading his in on a ‘20 AT4.
    Thanks for the honest feedback! I haven't checked out the AT4; but I have always been a bit jealous of my GM buddies' payload. Will check into them. I wish GM had their shit together more on their interior game though.

    I like my interior, but I find that to be a pretty personal thing. I get nothing but compliments on my “shitty” GM interior. Go sit in one and see what you think, the AT4 has some fun little custom bits inside that jazz it up a bit.

    Sorry for muddying the blue oval thread.

    Anyone have current referrals for someone who can deal over email on an F150? Calgary, or anywhere within 4 hour drive. Someone who is not a bullshitter? I'm pretty particular on specs/packages, so I don't want to mess around with anyone who'd just gong to try to push whatever is on the lot.
    If there's any referral bonus I'd split it with you, or buy you wings, or reach-around or whatever.
    Ed Wan At cam clark is who i bought mine from. I tried every calgary dealer first and almost went to edmonton to get it but he came through. Theres a 750 ref bonus but you can have the whole thing, just pm me if you go with him and ill give you my info

    You need to find someone who can get you one of those X code deals or something.

    Tbh any invoice pricing promo should be fine for you, there is essentially no BS involved.
    @ExtraSlow

    Pricing is all the same currently, as it is employee pricing. Your best bet is to find a dealer with the truck you want.

    The only difference the dealers could make are dipping into their holdback 2-3% of the truck MSRP, or offer free maint/spray box liner type additions.

    +2 for Sherwood ford. PM’d.

    EDIT: Actually - I believe Xplan allows for a maximum of $100 for Doc fees, so there could be savings there. Sherwood is very upfront about Xplan, they even have a blurb on their webpage about it.

    So I decided to order the CR Stage 3 turbo kit from 5star for my EB. Supposed to support 520WHP, curious to see how much I can squeeze. Been talking to them about tuning and some piping upgrades/changes, but hopefully get it sorted out and get ordered as delivery I'm told is a month(ish).

    I traded my '16 in to a dealer a year ago for 30,500 with 302a and similar KM, so add about 3k for 502A. With that in mind, yours in a private sale is probably around $34-ish.

    And, @ExtraSlow I have a pretty good guy, used him for my last 4 vehicles. No bullshit kinda guy. Let me know if you want me to put you in touch with him.

    +2 for Ed wan at cam clark Airdrie. Check to see if you qualify for the X-plan.

    True employee pricing is A-plan, which is similar but not identical to X-plan, which is for partner companies (like CP rail, CNRL for instance). Both A and X plans have caps on documentation fees etc, which the annual "employee pricing" promotion does not include.

    Yeah.

    Also, A-plan excludes holdback (2-3% MSRP), and advertisement free 0.25% MSRP usually.

    It’s a good $1500-3000 discount depending on truck and trim over the X plan.

    Any of the new-beyond-civic Raptor crew do serious towing with their 2nd gens? After selling my M and wanting to keep to only two cars, I'm getting Raptor-curious again but I feel like it's just destined to be a net-downgrade in towing experience from a Max Tow 5.0. That HO 3.5 torque tho.

    Would adding ride-rite airbags or similar help the raptor's cause? Trailer is max 7600lb (4766lb dry weight+ capacity) at probably a 550-600lb tongue weight (still need to weigh it- hope the beyond trailer-gang doesnt spot this and exile me from their ranks).

    - - - Updated - - -
    did fine. Its stock, no airbags. Would recommend a weight distribution hitch though!
