2018 Tundra for a 2020 Boss. I travelled from NW Arkansas to Springfield, MO to Tulsa, OK in one day before sealing the deal.

2020 Ford F-150 Raptor...still hurts, but I seriously cashed out when I unloaded the Raptor. My '21 Trail Boss feels like I'm back in a proper truck again; I thought the craziness of the supply shortage would have ended and I would be back in another Raptor by now, but it seems like I'll be sticking around in camp Chevy for awhile...

Well at least you won't have EcoBoost issues. Hopefully no GM lifter issues if you went with the 6.2.
I owned an oil analysis business for 42 years and the Raptor valvetrain, leaking oil pan, etc problems with the 3.5 Ecoboost were not fun for my customers.

Fingers crossed, I did go with the 6.2; I did hear horror stories about the ecoboost motors, but knock on wood I never had any problems with them in my 2018 or 2020 trucks.

This is anecdote not statistically relevant or peer reviewed but the defective lifters in the 5.3 and 6.2 engines are metallurgy caused, however fuels dilution of the engine oil seems to be a constant with the oil analysis tests I have worked. I have seen 6+ % fuels dilution in the engines that have issues. Some of that is valve action failing but not all because I see it in some of the engines before failure. Running a engine oil that resists the fuels impact longer than the average Dexos oil seems to leverage in the right direction. Taking a oil sample that uses FTIR KF water, and GC fuels reading can early alert the owner there could be issues. Mobil 1 and Amsoil users seem to have fewer failures on the newer units. The failures at 10,000 miles or less won't be stopped by an engine oil but thats what I have seen back to 2019 versions of 6.2 with 25000-30000 miles using Amsoil and consistently having 3% fuels dilution of the engine oil.
