Default Traded my Eco Boost for Raptor,,,

Just traded my 2014 FX4 Eco Boost for a 14 Raptor as I finally was able to find the one I liked.

Dealer is going to re and re my tow mirrors from the FX4. Sales guy just not sure if the power telescopic and power fold functions will be able to work......

I know there is a separate switch in my FX4 for the telescopic function perhaps they can hook it up to one of the toggle switches in the raptor anyone have any insight on this ???

Side question but how do you like the 6.2 over the Ecoboost?

I personally had no issues with either of my ecoboosts. They hauled ***, although my 2011 was noticably faster than my 2014. I do love the sound and ***** of the 6.2 though, and given that I don't tow anything over 6k, it's worth it to me. Surprisingly enough, I am getting about 1.5 mpg better in the 6.2 than I was in my ecoboost.

Congrats, nice choice! not sure how I feel about tow mirrors, but that all comes down to preference. I've seen them on a few raptors, just looked awkward to me...
