    I just got my dream truck (new to me) 2018 Raptor with all the bells and whistles. I'm loving my truck! Picture is of when I first picked it up, hasnt been detailed or washed yet but I assure you shes all clean now!

    Do you know what your build date is? I ask because Ford switched from the plastic oil pan to the metal one in mid 2018 due to all the cracked leaking pans. Also, 3.5 ecoboost engines built before fall 2019 have the *old* style part number cam phasers which were prone to failure. Definitely things you want to check out.

    Wow! Thanks for the heads up. I really dont like the phaser issue you mentioned... I had an 05 gt with a phaser issue and the cost of repair was like $3500
    I checked under the raptor a week ago and the pan feels and looks metal but I will check the date just to be 100% sure and I will get back to you.
