    Are you adding 37" tires with that high of a lift?

    I'd love to hear & see how it goes. The company I'm working with says there will be some tire rub on ship turns. I'd be curious to hear what your experience is? What tires did you go with?

    That is the set up I was looking at. I look forward to seeing pictures and hearing about the ride once you get it done.

    I bought factory beadlocks from a member on another forum, because I am not one for the polished stock wheels. They seem to sell fairly quickly if they are priced right. Prices are all over the place. Saw $2,800 all the way to $1,200.

    I wouldn't mine taking the factory beadlocks off your hand. What do you want for them?

    That's not quite true. According to Fabtech "The lift is built around a front and rear 1/4" thick steel crossmember that relocate your Raptor's LCAs, while differential drop brackets bring down the factory front differential. A pair of ductile iron steering knuckles with lifted spindles relocate and correct the geometry of your Raptor's CVs, UCAs, and tie rods. The kit adds 4" of front ride height to your 2017-2018 Raptor with a set of shock extensions that allow you to keep the factory 3.0 Fox Coilovers. For the rear, Fabtech includes a complete rear block kit and shock extensions for the rear Fox shocks. A 1/4" thick skid plate is included for bridging the crossmembers and protecting the front differential."

    Also "Cutting Required: this lift kit requires cutting your Raptor's subframe and other components for installation."

    I was looking at this lift for me 2019 but then noticed there is cutting so not not sure. Does this void your warranty? You got some pics of your truck now that it’s finished?

    I replaced my 'standard' rims with bead locks a couple of weeks ago. The dark wheel against the Av Grey looks great!
