The Ford Raptor‘s Fox shock absorbers were perhaps its single best feature, even ahead of the brawny V-8 and the grille-mounted clearance lights. Knowing their capabilities, you sped up for any obstacle—speed bumps, curbs, Mount Kilimanjaro. Now, they offer even more wheel travel for the all-new 2017 model.

Maximum wheel travel increases to 13 inches up front and 13.9 inches in back (compared with the previous Raptor’s 11.2 and 12.1 inches).
