  1. Have you ever tried it? Trust me if you have the 6.2 and disable esc and traction control you will blow the tires off when you nail it. Ask me how i know. Sure if you put a decent drag radial on there and warm them up you could get them to bite, but on the stock duratracs...no way. I went from a 2020 5.3 10 speed trail boss to a 2021 6.2 10 speed trail boss. All i can say is i will never go back to a 5.3 again. I never thought there would be this much of a difference between the two. Just the overall drivability of the 6.2 is amazing. You have so much more tq on hand through out the rpm r
  2. Took my 6.2 Trail Boss with 93 in it to the local 1/8th mile track tonight. My best time was a 9.1 at 76 mph. I smoked a new hemi truck and a 2003 mustang gt. This guy had a 10 speed in the 5.0. I launched in auto4 and just stomped it off the line. I had him until he hit 3rd.
  3. I have a 2021 Trail Boss 6.2 and I only had one flapper before the muffler. This is what I did to get rid of mine. I cut all the 3" out and replaced it with a 3.5" Vibrant 304ss muffler and 304ss tubing. I debated getting the Borla touring cat back but I had a hard time justifying the cost. Plus i wanted to keep the resonators.
  4. My 2020 trail boss had some major electrical issues 2 weeks before my family and I were going on vacation. They couldnt get it fixed in time so they made me an offer I couldnt refuse on a 21 TB with a 6.2. They gave me 1,000 more than i paid for it 8 months prior. I left for a 1,500 mile trip one way with 30 miles on it. What i did was use thd manual shift mode and varied engine rpm's every 15 min. And didnt hammer down until it had about 700 miles on her. I changed the oil when we got to our destination.
  5. I just ordered this for my 6.2. I plan on leaving the resonators in and removing the flapper and stock muffler. I post some video when its done. https://danaport.com/products/banks-54008-muffler
  6. Lol I guess so! Your install is clean. Well done! I'll take some close up pics. of mine tomorrow. These are the Raptor LED's I used. https://www.ebay.com/p/2310908778 Looks like the smoked ones I used are sold out.
  7. No. I had always thought it is a great spot to add some light. I did see your post and it inspired me to get going on mine. Yours turned out great by the way. I didn't wire mine up to the turn signals yet! Not sure if I will. The lights I bought have a 3 wire connection. So you can run them as parking lights or add a brighter turn signal flash or just a brighter light. I wired up the dimmer parking light for now. The lights have 2 mounting holes, top and bottom. I used a couple zip ties and drilled a small hole in the plastic of the bottom vent and looped the top around one of the h
  8. Your probably right, but honestly...how many people who buy Raptors and the TRX will use it to its full potential? Most owners of these trucks that I know have never even been off road with them. The ones that do, and the trails they take them on could easily be done in myTrail Boss. The majority of people that have them use them as mall cruisers.
  9. To me this is perfect for a non leveled or lifted trail boss. I also have an 06 silverado lifted that I was running 315/70/17's (35's). The truck has 4.10 gears and ran well with them. I dropped down to 285/70/17's (33's) this past fall, and I couldn't believe how much power I lost running the 35's! The truck is so much more responsive now. I will never go back to the 35's. That is the main reason I won't go bigger than a 275/70/18 on my trail boss. I don't want to lose the power!
  10. Yup. I have that same noise. Not sure what it is but it was definitely muffled by the stock exhaust. It goes away when it warms up.
  11. So here is a side by side of my 2020 trail boss with the Moto Fab 1" leveling kit. Pic on the left is with it installed and the right is stock. I had mine on for 5,000 miles and zero issues.Although the angles don't look that bad and the joints were still rock solid when I took the spacers out. I removed it today because I don't want to take a chance of the uca ball joint failing and I personally don't mind the rake. I know they pounded the snot out of a stock trail boss on the TflTruck channel on YouTube with no problems in 15,000 miles. I would much rather have the reliability!
  12. Leading up to the failure of the ball joint, did you notice any knocking sound or weird play in the steering?
