Bought my 06 Raider brand new and finally got rid of it with just over 101,000 worry free miles.
It was a good truck and very relaible.
The only complaint that I ever had was the not so good mpg's which averaged only 15 to 16 no matter how I drove.
Maybe a five or six speed auto would have made that better.
In sales and drive a lot of highway miles and have over 100,000 miles in 3 years. Still get looks and stares from everyone asking what brand of truck and how sharp it looks. Great reliability - new brakes at 75,000 miles and new tires at 90,000 miles. Used to get over 21 MPG on highway but now now get about 18 MPG but still pleased for a V8.
Everything about the truck - fully loaded - especially like the styling.
Don't remember if a moon roof / sun roof was available but will be getting one installed soon. Also would like to have a power adjusted passenger seat. Otherwise not much else is missing.
I've had my raider for a few months now and love it. Got it for 10,400, great price and it does great. The v8 has more than enough power and the payload is great. I had 18 90 lbs bags of concrete in the back, 3 separate times! Didn't even bottom out. Truck is clean and interior is plasticky so it's easy to clean. Can fit my 3 18 year old buddies in the back with plenty of room, and my 6'6" 260lb dad fits fine in it. The bed is a little short, and the worst part, the fuel economy. I only drive around town and the 22 gallon tank goes 200 plus miles. Would do better on the highway, but around town the mpg is bad. Great truck overall!
The v8. The interior and exterior. Roomy.
MPG! Please make this better. The around town MPG stinks flat out. I fill up every week.
I've had this truck for most of this year and it's a good truck. The V8 pulls the wave runners and camper easily. The back seat with the double cab has plenty of room, it's a fabulous looking truck. No problems so far. The gas mileage though is very poor and I was hoping for a few MPG better than I'm getting with mostly highway driving. Mine came fully and the 5 year warranty make it a great value. All leather, V8, power everything, 5 disc changer, bluetooth, etc. I like it.
Bed extender, roomy 4 door cab, comfort, and the styling is amazing.
