That is a nice rig! Yeah ofc it would outperform tha 150-raptor, the front suspension ist just way stronger and the solide axle will keep the pressure better on the ground.

Hello,

i think for any of these vehicles, either closer to a baja racer or a rock crawler, a shortened wheelbase would be interesting.

140" ist just too much. 120 or 110" would be ideal for any...

From the frame-advertisement in the other threat i know that ford states, the new frame rail is gonna be one inch taller than before.

Don't know what's so hard about just buying all 3 frame, or better a couple of em, and then just measure the amount of force necessary to bend (not flex) them in all the important direktions.

Or...

Yeah that is definetly one of the big advantages of the solide axle. Another one would be that fact that the xle transfers the ground pressure directly to the other side if one wheel is liftet and of...

Yeah of course the new boxed SD frame would have to be much bigger than the one used on the f-150.

Well te boxed Profile of the F-150 is 225x75x2.8mm, the boxed Profile of the Silverado HD is 215x88x4.5mm, so adding another 2mm to the Metal of the F-150 frame sound pretty equal in the result.
