That looks amazing! Im doing 18s with the same tyres but in a 35" and a 4' lift. Gives me a nice idea what everything will look like. I hate you for getting your truck already though lol. Congratulations. Looks awesome

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.
sorry my vision went blurry after Chevy ?

Lol, it only lasted a year. Replaced 3 CV Boots, and two of the rear DSSV shocks. All within 36,000 miles

We all make mistakes, I had a 21' TRX for 19 days which I traded for this platinum after my raptor was totaled.
Wow, why trade the TRX? btw I moved to the Austin area from CA. I see plenty of new 21 F150 here. I see trucks are the norm here cruising at 90mph with affordable gas :)

Any update on the shocks? I have been told to wait because none of the manufacturers have adjusted them for the 2021 timing which is different than 2020 and prior years. So I put on a 2.5" level kit, but I want to replace the shocks as well. I also did 295/70/18 tires and all is good with no rubbing or trimming needed. Just curious if you have had any issues or reduction in ride quality since you put on the Kings.

Smooth but no more bounce like oem
What do you mean by this? When I pulled onto the hwy today, the rear end seemed to kind of bounce a little. No load, 2wd mode, 200 miles on odometer.

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.

front suspension.png

Coil + reservoir w/ compression adjuster.

rear 3 quarter angle.png

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

rear tire.png

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.

rear suspension.png

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.
What does your rake look like now. I’m running the icon stage 2 kit on mine. Have it adjusted to about 2 1/8” on 17s. Wish there was a tire ratio for the 17s like you have there with the 295/70/18s…..might try that set up next time w/ 0 offset 5” backspacing to satisfy the icon UCA.

13k miles later and it’s still good. I called king specifically before installing their 2020 kit and they said they tested it with no issues.

not sure what that is… I meant more of a floaty feel on the front end when breaking/accelerating.

How do you like the 80% ceramic on the windshield? Does it add any tint at all, or is it completely clear?

Thinking of doing the same when I get my tints next week. Their only other option is 50% and I think that would be too dark for my liking.
