2.5 King Coilover Reservoir on 2021 FX4 Platinum.png




Wish the touch-less wash took care of the airdam lol

When I first saw it come off the lift like this I thought it would rub - but I was gladly surprised.

Coil + reservoir w/ compression adjuster.

Stocks in the bed but sits level w/o those in there.

Went with the 18" over the 20" because personally I prefer a more meaty tire.

rear poke.png

Slight poke - looks just right in my opinion.

Standard 2.5 King rear shocks. King told me it's a 9 month delay for the compression adjuster versions
unless I could find it within one of their dealers - sadly I couldn't. I heard they don't do much for the rears anyway.

Again slight poke - just how I like it.

On road it rides better than factory. Smooth but no more bounce like oem and more planted on curves/turns. Haven’t tested off road yet; I work in the stone mining industry so I’ll find out Monday.

Looks great! Do you know about how high the Kings are set, did you adjust them or get them installed out of the box?

Only reason I ask, I run 2.5 Icons on my 2017 with 35.12.5.17s, installed them out of the box and then adjusted them later after some rubbing off-road to about 2.63" of lift. (Max recommended from Icon). Thinking about trying the Kings whenever I upgrade to the 2021.

Thanks!

King states a preset of 2” out of the box. I left it as is.

bumps or jumps? Handles bumps like a dream. Jumps... I haven’t tested that yet lol.
Lol, I'm talking small jumps. You're rolling with Kings in that bad dog now. You need to let it eat.

That's awesome (y) Finally, someone who spends the dollars and puts them to good use. I did a nice downhill run on a whooped out sand hill the other day. The Bilsteins did just okay.

I had a 20’ raptor that got totaled. Just bad timing since the new one isn’t out yet so I settled for a platinum and did this setup. I’ll trade it for a 21/22 raptor when I can get one at sticker.

Your current setup looks great. That's the style wheel I was kicking around if/when I get rid of the OEM wheels.

I did have a *whisper voice* Chevy Colorado ZR2 before this F150. That thing was pretty badass. I could run down a powerline trail with 3-4' whoops at 45 MPH like it was nothing.
