I think the front mounted camera is brilliant if I'm honest. Unless you have a spotter out there all the time there are just some moments where you need it. Especially in steep climb segments where it would be hard for a spotter to be on a hill it's easier to use the camera.

And the new torsion diff is a great add-on. Looks like Ford was listening.

Anyone else notice the rather poor rear suspension design compared to the front? Factory lift block! Those U-bolt tips look pretty vulnerable, too.

all F-150 have that block, not really a "lift block" per say as it incorporates into a striking pad for the bump stop since Ford uses "out board" placed shocks.

side note: don't knock that rear end unless you have driving it yourself. i have. those specially tuned internally bypassed shocks are superb and are spot on

Ford put in nice shocks in the rear but seems to have neglected the rest of the rear suspension. Of course it can be modded, and sky's the limit there. Wider spring perch, frame reinforcement, different spring pack, hydraulic bumpstops... The stock Raptor front suspension just seems a lot better developed.
