I purchased my raider in 2006 brand new and after a while I took it upon myself to improve the fuel economy by installing a cold air intake kit that brought me up to getting as much as 24 mpg on the highway and about 19 in the city. The ride is great and comfortable, she's fun to drive and I am going to upgrade it with more parts to help make her more fuel efficient and fun to drive by switching to a performance exhaust and higher performance spark plugs and cables which will be an inexpensive yet effective upgrade. I look forward to many more years of driving my Raider.
Its exterior design in particular is beautiful and striking, it does not look like any other truck out there and I like that. She's long and very nimble in traffic.
Definitely improve the fuel mileage. Improve the start off power, and add a stronger engine.
