I wanted to see if anyone might would know where I could find a spare rim for my 07 Raider? Are there universal Raider rims that could possibly be cheaper? I am low on funds, but in need of a spare tire. Thanks for any suggestions in advance.
I have a new 2006 mitsubishi raider. when i am driving on highway the truck will not go over 100mph. It feels like its going to stall when it hits 100mph. Does anyone else have this problem? Does my raider have speed restrictor on it. How do i get rid of it? I would like to be able to go over 100mph in my truck. If i would have know that i would not have bought the truck.
I just bought an '07 Raider and appears it has a factory bedliner (has the Mitsu logo anyway). I'm in the market for a hard tonneau or possibly a retractable since I'm not too uptight about losing some bed room.
Will the Dodge Dakota tonneau's fit the Raider? Not just a fit that'll work, but a genuinely GOOD fit.
Kind of pricey, the Retrax looks good for a retractable. The Undercover looks to be a good choice for a hardtop but don't list the Raider as an available model.
Any suggestions or comments will be appreciated. KOz
Hello To All, I am new to this sight and think it is going to help me alot on my truck. I bought this 2007 Mitsubishi Raider crew cab truck off of the internet two weeks ago, It has got 56,000 miles on it and I should have took a trip and looked at it b-4 I bought it. I had it one week and a friend of mine was getting in on the passegar side and seen the cord sticking through on the rear tire, I had to buy a $180.00 tire. Well now the right side headlight has gone out. I have got the light and can anyone tell me the easiest way to change it. I like the truck but the gas mileage is not good and I think it has been hit pretty hard in the front, the dealer I bought it from in S.C. said that it check out to be a good truck from his service department, I hope it will last me until I get back to getting around again from a heart attack, I need to get this light fix as soon as possible any help will be appreciated. Thanks
Hello everyone. I have a 07 Mitsu Raider, QC, 3.7, auto, 4x4. I have a question about the transmisson at slow speeds. I have seen several posts in other forums about trans issues at higher speeds and noticed a thread or two about the torque converters. My problem is a pulse or surging when the truck is barely moving. I notice this every time, not just occasionally. Again, the best way to describe it is a pulse, or surge that can be felt throughout the truck. It's not a miss and it's not a bounce in the suspension. The truck really moves just a little as you feel it pulse. I really notice it at a drive through or waiting in a line of traffic. Took it to the dealer and they were able to duplicate but said "it's normal" and that the dakota's all do it too. I'm not an idiot and I know that this is the standard answer the first few times for most dealers, but I wanted to see if others have experienced this and if so have you been able to remedy. After searching several dodge and mitsu forums I have not been able to find anyone with the problem I describe (making me wonder if it truly is normal) but maybe no one else is as annoyed by it as I am. This looks to be a great forum so I choose to post here for a few responses before going back to the dealer for round two. Thanks for the anticipated help!
Well I'm new here, this is actually my first post. The thing is, when I recently bought my 06 Raider Durocross V8 I was told by one of the dealers that my specific model( extended cab, not double cab) is very very rare. He went as far as to say there is only 6 raiders like it. I'm not sure if I could believe that, and i definitely didnt make my purchase based on that but now I'm left wondering. Has anybody heard about this? I have never seen another durocross V8 extended cab, but then again ALL the Raider trucks are relatively rare.
Does anyone have experience with putting a cold-air intake system into a 2006 (or any year) Durocross Raider, V6? I've heard better gas mileage, increase of up to 10hp. I'm finding them for around $300. Let me know if it's a waste of money. I have a K&N Air filter on now and a 3" Gibson exhaust system which opened up the airflow some to give more torque. The one thing the V6 raider is missing is horsepower. They made the 2006 with 210hp, even my wifes trailblazer has 245. Don't know what they were thinking there.
Hey guys, I have a similar forum topic going, but no response. I have an 07 Raider Durocross. It's a V6 and I have a K&N air filter and Borla ProXS muffler. I had my mechanic saw off the first resonator (after the cat back) b/c the sound wasn't any different. We left the back resonator on. It's got a decent sound, good low tone at low rpm but a little raspy at high rpm. I've heard different opinions on the resonators. Does anyone know if taking them both off will mess up backflow and lower torque? My guy tells me it will do both and be overall louder, but that's about it. I had another guy tell me to leave both resonators on for best performance. Anyone know what the resonators off/on will really do and should I remove the one before the tip? Thanks!
Hello, I have a 06 Mit Raider V8 crew cab. After the first couple of months, when we put the truck in park or drive, it makes a fairly loud kerchunk noise. We took it to the dealership and they said it's a normal characteristic, however they issued a service bulliten and we need to meet with the factory rep. Has anyone else experienced the noise?
I also can't find the make and model of the stereo that came with the truck. The dealer told me I would need to pull it out and look at the top of the unit. I know the speakers are Alpine, the unit is a 6 cd changer with Sirrus radio. The CD text titles don't assocoate correctly with the songs on the CD and the same CD text is fine in other car stereos.
To start it off i enjoy the raider even if it is a dakoda. But the service and custermer sadifaction is not there. I bought this 07 used with 17k on it around 17.5k notice water coming inside when parked in my driveway after a rain. First thought I had left the window down but it happen again a few days later during a rain in the driveway again. Yet not when driving. I took it to a Mitu dealer they checked it out and found it was leaking so they had me bring it back to reseal the windsheild. That didnt work for a week later same problem took it back amd 4 hours later they said have to bring it back so they could take the dash out. So this past thur I droped it off at 9 in the morning I didnt hear from them untill I called on Fri at 4:30 they said that it was all new to them and they were taking it easy. They had to get the informatiom on how to pull the dash from the Dodge Dealership and lots of calls for help. They had the dash out and they knew ware it was leaking from but not the cause said Ok asked about a loaner car thats where this goes south. They told me that under the warrantiy that it was not covered because that is not dealing with the drivetrain and would not be covered under the rules that are set up for loaners. But hello you cant drive the truck without the steering wheel or the dash, You do need it to control the drivetrain. So on monday just before noon I called and they basicly had done nothing to the truck. Yet maybe 2-3 weeks if they have to put it in the bodyshop so they agreed to 1 day rental Im in contact with mits usa about this will post a follow up.
I have a 2006 V8 raider 2WD four door crew cab or whatever it is. I don't pull anything and am not a speed freak. I'm looking for ways to improve my mpg that don't cost an arm and a leg. I have calculated my mpg since I bought the car about six months ago. I get an average of about 15.5 mpg. The vehicle is completely stock.
What things are the best bang for the buck when it comes to mileage?
- New plugs? I have heard that this can help.
- Cold air intake.
- Truck bed cover.
I have also been thinking about having it reprogrammed.
[I][COLOR=purple]Has anybody heard about spindles for an 07 Raider yet? I am going to do a flip, and would like some spindles. If I can find about 2.5" I can mod the spring caps for the rest, 5" mod is just to much to keep the suspinsion working right. Any info would be great. Thanks Mark

I'm new to this forum so here is a big hello to everyone on here!!! I just bought 2 2007 Raiders and I am looking for some performance upgrades for them. I also want to find some drop spindles, probably about 4", an air dam, and rear roll pan. Please post some pics of your mods. Thanks Mark
Ok I need to add transmission fluid to my 06 Raider. In the car manuel it says to take it to a Dodge dealership or a Service Center. Have any of you done it yourself? Or do you HAVE to take it to a dealership or service center. Thanks in advance.
