With the 6.2 still an option in the 2015 SD F250 I hope it will still be around for the Raptor. Makes sense to keep it, but ya never know. Competition may dictate a change to a turbo of some kind. A 5.0 turbo possibly. After market turbos are avail with a lot of success.
Who knows Rousch, Shelby etc, might even be an option again.

I bought my FX4 back in September and have been doing mods here and there...but, I always go back to the Raptor which I was deadset on purchasing but ended up being blinded by a too good to pass up deal. I had an appraisal done yesterday, 7k miles on her and basically was offered 7k below what i paid...and I tend to pay my cars / trucks off within 2 years so I've been paying a good amount each month....the trade value I was given was a more than what I owe - mind you I had a pretty decent trade when i bought the FX4.

Question is, should I pull the trigger or wait...supposedly the Raptor will be back in 2016, but there's no guarantee...


Buy Raptor - 6.2 Engine may not be offered after 2014 model year.

Agreed, 6.2L makes the Raptor, get while the gettin's good with the 2014, future's uncertain and the end is always near. lol

Time's running out too, with tooling set up for the 2015 looming.

She is finally here! Took the stock beadlocks off for now...have my methods on her. Still debating if I'm going to offload the methods or the special edition beadlocks. So far, love the truck!

The rings depending on the ruts you might go through will end up getting scratched up. Mine are all that way and now debating on what to do....

Yea. They are nice wheels. But I'm just not sure about them...they are spendy.and could bring in some nice mod money. Love my methods though...had I not gone with the SE as I originally planned to get one with just the blue accents, the stocks would've been gone for sure.
