      900lbs of payload for the TRX and Raptor... 😆 I will stick to my f250 diesel Tremor package. 3x payload, more than 2x towing, factory 35’s and locker.

  • tmmsplace

    Incredible to see how many of these trucks come with sedan-esque CV axle, instead of durable U-joint

    The Raptor suspension is too flex. And for that reason, I'm out! R.A.M. Charger, baby!

    Raptor is in bad need of a v8. Come on ford, $70k and it sounds like a 1990 ford ranger.

  • gfh77665

    I am a big fan here, but at 9:40 you critique the RAM TRX for being "understated" and "not having a hood scoop"? What?? If you will notice, the RAM TRX does have a hood scoop, and the so-called "pitch perfect" Raptor does not! Can you explain please?

    Take a trip to the dessert with these rigs. Slow speed rock crawling with 700 plus hp is like making usain bolt competing in a walking race. Not saying these trucks can’t do this cause they can but big trucks like these just aren’t the best for tight narrow mountain pass trails or slow speed rock crawling. Just get a base 4runner or wrangler for that. Now in the dessert is where you can really have fun with all this horsepower and the inspiration behind these trucks in the first place. Baja blasters

    Thank God Ford stopped using SVT suspension on the Raptor. Their suspension is crap. I'll take the TRX. You don't buy a truck like this for fuel economy. 😉

    TRX and Raptor are great trucks, I would love to drive them once. Unfortunately, I don't have the money and dealers to buy these cars here in Switzerland. And we pay 3x the price for gas here so the 6.2 Hellcat would be way too expensive to drive.

    Tommy, Please don't reference the soldiers landing at Normandy on D-Day. Nothing that you do at TFL even vaguely compares to breaching a beach under intense weapons fire surrounded by dead and wounded comrades while wondering how you will possibly survive the next 10 minutes of your life. Your worst case scenario is getting stuck on an off-road trail and possibly damaging a vehicle. - Respectfully, JK

    Just make sure you don’t actually drive your Gladiator through more than a few inches of mud, or FiatChrysler won’t repair it under warranty if it breaks.... (this may apply to your TRX, too...) 😂 I mean, nobody buys a Gladiator to off road it, everybody knows that! It’s clearly designed and intended to crawl around mall parking lots in 4Lo by yuppies who don’t even know what the hell 4H or 4L are, or who would likely even miss the capability that they represent if the truck had no front diff or transfer case in the first place... It also would’ve been nice to see at least an extended cab Gladiator, not to mention a single cab, short bed Gladiator. I understand why there isn’t a single cab from a business standpoint, but a shorter extended cab with a more realistic breakover angle would’ve been pretty awesome. A Gladiator with the 6.4 Hemi like the upcoming 392 Wrangler would also be totally awesome. Preferably with two doors, a single cab, and a short bed. They might only sell a handful, but in 20-30 years they’d be worth a small fortune. Offer it with a stick, and whoever buys one of the ten made can sell it down the road and retire comfortably. End of rant.

    Horsepower isn't everything. And im shocked thats the only thing Ram beat Raptor on. Youd think they'd beat the Raptor in all aspects. They tried to cover up with a big engine. So basically Dodge put a big engine in a Raptor


    Ford has a Raptor Ram has a T-rex I guess GM will need a dinosaur too?

    Shame GM will never compete at this level while there's a woman running the company.. instead we get a "Blazer" that looks like a station wagon made for soccer moms...sad

  • NoNegotiations

    So why did it rub in the Raptor? How can engineers miss that.

  • Firestarter

    What does landing a boat have to do with crawling over a boulder? It's like he's trying to seem wiser than his age, but it just comes out as nonsense.

  • Firestarter

    Why'd you buy another Raptor? It's been out and reviewed for like 4 years now... People are probably far more interested in seeing normal affordably optioned vehicles... do some market research... see what people want and need... then make content for them.

  • Firestarter

    10:52 since when does Jeep use airlockers? I know the TJ uses airlockers and weak torsen rear diff when it's unlocked iirc, but I thought all the new stuff was electric?

  • Firestarter

    You guys do realize that diesels DON'T, and this goes for the ecoboost motors as well, have the torque their ratings suggest without the turbocharger cramming air down their throat. 440 ft lbs could only be generated under max load... Also, the diesel has a 70:1 crawl ratio vs the gasser at 84.2:1, so I doubt the difference is all that much between an unboosted 3L diesel and 3.6L gasser... diesel does have more energy density and the engines are a little more efficient, but the gasser is 20% larger with a 20% better crawl ratio. . Further proof, my 1998 Cummins 12v had a 5.9L turbo motor making 215hp and 440 ft lbs of torque under boost. That's 75 ft lbs per liter with turbocharging and an incredibly efficient engine (25mpg unmodified 2wd manual stock tires 2500 with dana 80h axle). If the Jeep could make that same 75 ft lbs per liter without the turbo it would make 225 ft lbs of torque unboosted... much less than the 260 ft lbs of the v6 gasser... Now the 12v was a restrictive head that took 70psig to make 750rwhp, but I sincerely doubt it's making much more torque than that... It would have to make 87 ft lbs per liter to match the gasser, and needs to make 312 ft lbs to match the gasser's torque and crawl ratio, so it would need to make 104 ft lbs unboosted. . You guys need to stop referring to boosted torque figures for crawling... how often do people really floor a rig when crawling? I'm not counting Hammertrucks and other rock racing rigs. . Basically all the torque difference you're feeling is coming down to the torque converter having a lower stall rating so it can use the lower diesel rpm. and converters multiply torque substantially.

    • jay sam
      jay sam

      @Eli Rodriguez Rams actually good off road and on road, they've also had the Power wagon and Rebel from before as well. Ford only had the Raptor. The reason why the Trx is more expensive is that its simply a newer, better, and more exotic than a Raptor. Raptors still nice but its a cheaper, affordable, and more common vehicle, not as high end as a Trx. Its right Fords been making the Raptor from before but Ram has brought in a newer and advanced vehicle than what they still have out going.

    • Eli Rodriguez
      Eli Rodriguez

      @jay sam I’m not a Ram guy, the new raptor comes out this year and it’s 3 generations newer of trial and error this is RAMs first TRX that’s my point, I personally believe it’s overpriced for what you get compared to a used 17 Raptor. Also the Raptor drives better on highway Fox shocks are the perfect all around driving quality the Bilsteins in the RAM perform better off road but lack the smoothness on highway

    • jay sam
      jay sam

      @Eli Rodriguez Hows a brand with a 2021 100k extoic truck like no other got a lot of catching up to do? This isn't Ford. Rams the most advanced truck brand we have and they haven't decided to keep a 2017 Trx unlike Ford who still has their 2016 Raptor.

    • Eli Rodriguez

    77k with ALL THE OPTIONS know to Man, and you think its expensive! In my country a ase model Ranger Raptor (not even a real Raptor) with a crappy 2.0 Ecoblue (213Hp) diesel goes for 56k. On top of that theres taxes... You have no idea how good you get it in the USA.

    How do you claim the Dodge is "understated"? It's got all the bulges the Raptor does, plus wider tires and the hood scoop and fancier grille.

    If I could have any of the 3 no charge it would be the TRX and I would trailer it to another dealer and trade it in for a 4500 or 5500 with duals. Awesome truck but I would lose my license and I do not like traffic court.
