2018 Ford Raptor
Hey guys, I currently have a 2018 Ford Raptor which I love but I’ve been considering buying an F250 6.7 TD. My truck is my daily driver so I’m always either driving to work, driving the kiddos around town, and towing my boat occasionally. It’s dry docked for now but I tow it to the Keys or other parts of Jacksonville. Listen I love my truck, I like the way it feels like a sports car when I drive it and the responsiveness it has. The only thing that sucks is the towing part. I had to upgrade my rear suspension to handle the weight and now I’m upgrading the brakes because they feel too soft. I’m at the Raptor’s max towing rating too. The thing is I don’t do everyday towing and the F250 will be mostly used around town. How many of you have switched from a Raptor to an F250 and regretted the decision? I test drove a 21 KR with the 6.7 and steering felt loose and acceleration wasn’t as responsive but once it responded I felt that power. I would love the Tremor but I see it rides tall and it probably won’t fit in my garage which sux. The non-tremor should fit though but the one I really like is the Trem. I feel like I don’t need such a big truck but when I do tow my boat I wish I did have a 250.

I went from a tuned 2017 F150 to a 6.7 F350 3 months ago. I loved how the F150 rode and handled and the quickness was great. But when it came down to towing, it just was lacking. Moving to the Super Duty was a no-brainer. While the 6.7 is not as quick, it is plenty fast for weighing 4 tons. Does it ride as well, no. But if you air down the tires, it still rides pretty well. And yes, it is my daily driver. I hope this helps.

Thanks! Appreciate it!
 
Almost same dynamic, raptor to SD. Daily driver as well. Minus smaller parking lots/parking spots, no issues getting around town. Glad I made the move.
 
I also went from a tuned 2016 Ecoboost F150 to the Tremor. I miss the quicker response but all around the Tremor wins by far. This is my new daily driver and have zero issues other than filling the tank. LOL I went from 23mpg to 14+-.

Hows the MPG? My Raptor is around 13.5-14mpg combined

I travel 16 miles each way to work and its 50/50 highway and side roads. Weekends is mostly side roads. I traveled up north this past weekend and got 16 with no traffic or stop and go traffic. Steady 60-65 mph.

I have a question. If your Tremor is stock height, how much of a rake does it have? Is there a big difference between front and rear height?
 
Most likely everyone here will tell you that they like they Tremor better so Ill most likely catch flack.

I went from a 2019 F-150 to the 2020 350 Tremor, and now back into a 2021 F-150.

While I did love the Tremor, Unless your boat is over 10,000 Lb, I would honestly prolly stick with the half ton.

Yes the 350 aired down rides better than at full PSI, but I didnt realize how much ride quality suffered in the 350 until I went back to the 150. The 150 drives incredibly better and just is nicer to drive. I also find the overall fit and finish is better on the 150 than the Super Duties.

If you ABSOLUTLY NEED the capabilities of the Super Duty its the Supreme Choice, but If you truthfully dont, save the cash and just get a 150.

Thanks for your honesty. Besides the shitty gas mileage and soft breaks when pulling my 8000 lbs boat w/trailer, the Raptor is a beast. Just always thought maybe my best bet would be SD. I’m upgrading the breaks soon (bought but not installed) so I’m hoping that will at least put me at ease for a bit.
