Default New Ride

I finally replaced my Super Duty King Ranch that was stolen in St Pete last November. I've been looking for a used fat body Raptor and this guy fell in my lap.

Meet Vader, 2012 Ford SVT Raptor

VADER's Power is a 6.2L Boss V8 Roush Phase 2
Long Tube Headers (cat delete)
3.5" Dual Exhaust System with Electric Cutout
Cold Air Box
65mm Throttle Body
SCT Tuner programmed for Roush Phase 2 minus Super Charger

No replacement for displacement folks!

Thats a nice truck, though I heard recently that it lacks quite a bit in the towing world. I mean I am sure it holds its own, but not considering the way she is built. I love this truck, but that had me second guessing for my next truck now.

Gotta love that 6.2. That tuning and throttle body should have really woken the motor up.

I didn't realize that the Raptors are able to park vertically like that. Bet it saves driveway space though.
