DO NOT GO TO TOP PERCH! Top perch on 2013 will wreak havoc on your front driveline assembly due to the Torsen differential used on 2012+ Raptors. Mid-perch is as high as you should go.

I'm living with the bottom perch due to the above post and horror I've read. I had mid perch on my 2010 and it was great to look at, but rode more stiff.

I'll take it the way Ford designed it, sadly. Everything else, mostly, is fair game!

Folks are having no issues with mid perch on 2012+. Issues, thus far, have only seemed to arrive for those on top perch.
