Cruise control has been all but unusable for years now.

All that has changed with Adaptive Cruise. You can use it anywhere. If you even think you'd like to be able to use CC again go with the Tech Pkg for that reason alone.

on a 60-70k truck I'm not sure why anyone cares about spending another 2k on functionality, even if you'll only use it on rare occasion. My buddy at work joked that he'd pay 2k for rain sensing wipers alone after having them for so long now. Granted, I've seen people buying 2k worth of stickers to remind them what their truck is called instead of the tech package so to each their own i guess.

I'm adding the tech package on my order simply for the collision mitigation... I can't say how many times the red lights lit up on my dash and saved me when I wasn't paying attention like I should have been.

It would be interesting to know who paid the 2k for stickers but opted out of the tech package because it wasn't "worth it"

Well, you got me wondering too so I checked some stats. For 2017, 8.5% of the Raptors made had NO tech package, but had both the exterior stickers and hood stickers. I'm actually depressed now.

The auto high beams were the only item I would have liked. My 2008 Jeep SRT8 had this, glad Ford finally caught up...

Lol, if you could pay a little more attention please that would be great.

I donít want to talk about it . Funny thing though I had a 2013 f150 with out it and I had so many mishaps with that truck and knock on wood with my 2015 I havenít had any accidents at all. Canít say thatís all due to the tech package though...
