According to Greg Foutz, the wheels, BFGoodrich K02 tires, suspension and many other components of pickup Ford F-150 Raptor for rally Baja 1000 will remain “exactly the same as any other F-150 Raptor, which anyone can buy in official dealers of “Blue Oval”. The only special solution for rally pick-up is readjusted shock absorbers and more powerful springs. The company went for this because the vehicle weight has increased, due to the installation of an additional racing equipment.
