One of the most important features on the Ford F-150 Raptor is its standard Fox Racing shocks. These high-tech shocks are capable of 13 inches of travel in the front and 13.9 inches at the rear, helping make the Raptor the Baja-ready monster right off the assembly line. But what does that travel actually look like? Thanks to this video, we find out.

The Fox Racing shocks standard on the Raptor use a three-inch internal bypass setup designed to provide firmness at either end of its travel, while being softer in the middle. This allows for a stable on-road ride, along with the ability to take some serious hits at-speed.

If you had any doubts before, this video will show you how hardcore the Raptor really is.
