You're obviously generating a lot more heat from these trucks than stock, and dealing with some of the same constraints as far as front end size, etc. Considering the factory overheat issues, especially when towing/running hard, how did you address that? Larger rad and IC I'm sure... what else?
And some non disclosed custom boys from our partner shops. Without them we aren’t the same RMB and it’s a multiteam effort so thank you to those who know who you are.

You smell.

Just some truck porn for your Sunday night viewing pleasure.

Truck 1 is 1000+ HP and 9000+ lbs on 37” KM3 E rated monsters.













Truck 2 is full bolt on stock turbo truck we call nutneazy

RMB doesn't work on plain Ole trucks anymore.

I recently threw those same 3.0s on the back of my raptor. I have to say, you will NOT be disappointed.
Showoff! Lol

I must admit that I go a little weak in the knees over springs/dampers/bars more than I do over intakes/exhaust/snails

I SHOULD have built my bucket-list truck on the Raptor platform. It would have made more economic sense. Especially resale.

But I had to be seriously honest with myself about the mission: Primarily a cross-country tow vehicle. Loooooong hours in the saddle per day when I was using it.

Everything that makes the Raptor a dream, technically makes it less a tow beast.

You have the best of both worlds.

Resale? Unless you’re saving The Wizard’s Engine for a newer truck yours isn’t going anywhere too soon.

You know me WAY too well.

Yea, I used that word. But I RARELY ever sell anything. I either keep it (borderline hoarding?) or pass it to a well deserving family member.

As for the RMB Motor that should be fetching storage fees....... It's true that there's never been any intention of it being stuffed under any hood but my King Ranch, but that's not necessarily a legitimate ball&chain fact. I never predict the future with much certainty! Stay flexible my friend. :)

And you know that isn’t really a possibility with my bones. :) I do the same thing with hand me downs. Though we (me and Mom) bought their latest two vehicles, they are still driving two that came down from me too. I should say “help buy“ instead of bought as I really believe they need to be a part of an investment like a vehicle. Did the same with their homes, their education... well... you get the idea.

They’ve been good participants. That said, I’ve always felt like I’d rather give it to them while I can enjoy seeing them use it rather than leaving it behind once I’m gone. Guess I’m getting a little off topic here.

Off topic?

What's Ryan going to do to me?
He's 2000 miles away.

Besides, he's Family First. So technically we haven't crossed any boundaries that he'd object to.

He works too much anyways. He could benefit from a distraction or two.

Speaking of exhaust, did you ever install it yet?

Ummmmm, there's a really big Well-packed box in the barn I just purchased. It's unopened.

Put some mosquito coils under the truck and get at it!

Gracious offer.
But I can just see both of us trying to get back up off the ground.

Walgreens nearby?

Yeah, we‘ve got Walgreens. Working on the truck is the only vehicle I’m confident that I can get up when down. I just roll around to the front of it, roll my legs back under it and use the tow hooks to lift myself up. Your BullBar will hold me. :) When I’m under the Edge or Escapes I have a pad that I make sure is near by and roll off the creeper with my knee on the pad. It’s much more difficult.

Same ones? These are new and have compression and rebound adjustment as well as dcs quick adjusters too?
This is a customers we built, for a 1000 hp daily it is a perfect suspension.

Many go to a big 3.5 with a 4.0 resi and a million adjustment tubes etc, or a King Kong 4.0 but body roll is real and this is built to handle offroad anything but not like a win in Baja but also handle and beat a GTR from 30-140 Easy on the highway.

We have a custom rear coming, driveshaft, Broncos, (surprises one store on them. Shhhhhh)

Did a stock engine tune today woth ZFG and while I ran our dyno he tuned it and I first do want to give Adam some very needed comments to let you all know.

1- professional as one could ever be. Trusting someone with a 210,000 dollar anything you’d want exactly what Adam natuarslly delivered.

(By the way if he was horrible I’d be saying this too). But this is honest


The tuners incredible and pushed just hard enough that it is safe and moved the power up a hair to keep load off the low rpm so no 695 ft/lbs at 1800 rpm like we do NOT want

Lastly for now as I’m super busy but will add more on ZFG. He was a pleasure to work woth and we were making many revisooons in the same time it would have been had he been This 2019 raptor with stock turbo bolt ons drives perfectly and crisp shifts makes it all that much more refined

X
Again more on my review because we need more honest tune reviews here and I have more to say and it’s all good.
