yeah dude, this thing gets it on, i wasnt really impressed upon first glance.. but checking out the specs and then WATCHING it in action... omg dude, this thing handles so much better than many prerunners ive seen out there. its insane. it has almost 12 inches of travel in the front and over 13 inches of travel in the rear with badass fox internal reservoir shocks custom designed for this truck. you gotta watch it in action

what makes you doubt fords suspension?
they did I-beams, and they worked bad ass
they were also the first ones to use 4-link

well, ive seen ford make some good and bad moves as with all car manufacturers (and life in general) but i'd definitely trust that the suspension is strong enough to perform at the level its advertised.. after all its 2008 and i doubt they'd put out a factory prerunner they would be a deathtrap.

however.....



im not sure if id trust the suspension in stock trim to go bombing off a huge lip or racing around with no cage... but you know? for a factory truck... looks to be pretty be rad.

I think it's pretty decent. The SVT group over there builds cars and trucks for specific shit, so sure you wont be able to jump the shit out of it, but if you pay 40K for a truck like that would you really want to beat the shit out of it day after day? sure its tough and it can handle  a dirt road at 100 mph, but if I bought it I would not beat it up too much. And also Fox designed the suspension along with ford, and built shocks exclusively for the truck, so sure it can't handle what a full on pre runner can or a trophy truck, but its a factory built F150 I think it deserves a little credit, cause it will def get criticism.
