Of course, the Ford F-150 is also fun for those who enjoy off-roading. In fact, you’ll be able to handle extreme off-roading with this truck. Here’s why. The Ford engineers went all out on the durability of this truck. They made sure to create a solid underbody that could hold up to intense cruising over rough terrain. At the same time, they made sure to make it flexible enough so you have great maneuverability and control.


The combination means you can do all the things you want when taking those driving stints off into the back roads. What exactly did Ford do to make the truck hold up in places that even a 4-wheeler wouldn’t go?


For one thing, the Ford F-150 is designed with the exclusive FOX Live Valve monotube shocks. These shocks have internal bypass technology that brings ultimate control to the driver. In addition, the monotube shocks have an electronic solenoid valve engineered to provide continuously variable compression damping. This enables them to automatically adjust in continually changing conditions of off-road terrain.
