    Fuck if I know. but I'm sure a call to Roush will answer those, and other questions that I have about it. Hennessey gets over 800 hp out of them on the stock drive line.

    I will say, it's not the first supercharged truck I've had experience with. Owned a brand new 2002 TRD supercharged Tacoma. I put 100K+ miles on it and never put a nickel into the truck. I know this is a grander scale and a heavier vehicle, so those are still concerns.

    Re: Let's talk trucks

    Its a pretty basic kit, pretty much a bolt on S/C to the 6.2

    Im not sure I would pay much of a premium for it (stickers and all that) as opposed to s/c'ing my own 6.2

    True, to a certain extent.

    The Roush upgrade is the supercharger, air/water intercooler, injectors, ecu, boost gauge and exhaust. The decals, and headrests are cosmetic.

    Wait, you have a 5/8th sized penis truck?

    Does roush offer a warranty? Good question, but I have learned to not relay on warranties as I mod most everything I have.

    Yes, the Roush Raptor originally came with a 3 yr/36,000 mile warranty on all upgraded components.

    This is a used 2012 with 27k on it.

    i dont believe that anyone makes a compact truck anymore like the s10 or ranger. the closest that youll get is a mid sized tacoma, dakota or colorado.
    i thought the new colorado was getting a diesel but i dont know for sure

    I had a 1989 Chevy S10 extra cab, with the 2.5L Iron Duke and a 5spd and I averaged 28mpg, I remember getting 30 on a round trip to New England dragway and back with my R1 in the bed.

    Then again, it could be my driving style, I'm getting better fuel mileage (14mpg) with my 71 C10 with a big block and 43 year old fuel system than I do with an 06 f150 I drive everyday for work...which gets 13

    I have not seen any increases in fuel economy over the years in cars that I have driven, I had a '75 chevy luv that routinely got 33-34 mpg in the summer, rural driving, the Dodge Ram 50 I had only got 28± but it had the 2.6 not the small engine, I had a Datsun as well, king cab, that got 32-33 as well, they were also designed as trucks with a real half ton payload, my chevy luv rode like a solid axle buckboard unless I had a ¼cord of firewood in the bed.

    Re: Let's talk trucks

    On a serious note lol

    I was in your shoes a few years ago. Had been thinking about a truck for a while test drove a few different ones. I was looking for the exact same truck as you 4 door, short bed, useful but don't actually need it. Im not one for options as a mechanic I just see that as more shit to break. Also plan on keeping the truck for 10 years hopefully.

    Found a used 2011 F150 5.0L crew cab/short bed XLT. Minimal options, tow package, power windows, ac lol. Test drove it and feel in love instantly. The new 5.0 motor with the new 6 speed trans makes for great drivability and ok gas mileage to. I was getting 18-20 mpg before I put bigger tires on it.

    I bought the truck with 27k miles for somewhere around $28,000. Original sticker was 38k. Have now put over 30k miles on it and haven't had a single problem. Love the truck, couldn't be happier with it.

    As a mechanic I'd recommend against the ecoboost for a long term truck. That's a lot of expensive parts that can break. Let's face it ford knows how to build a 5.0l. At this point. Drive one, trust me

    um, no, they actually had frames and real half ton payloads, 14" 10ply tires and rough ride unless they were loaded, not the wannabe compacts that have been produced in the last 35 years
