Am I the only one who hates leveling kits. I like the factory rake and want to retain that look. The 34" tires look good, but I don't like when you load it and the truck squats down either.
I agree 100% and I believe we are the minority on this one

On my ‘16 I ran Bikstein 5100’s at their lowest setting just so my larger tires didn’t look stuffed in the wheel well.

If I do a larger tire on my incoming truck I’ll probably do the same thing again.

‘Level’ always looks high in the front to me

I installed the Ford Performance 2.0. Unfortunately, I eneded up doing the install twice. I assumed the coils would need to be adjusted to compensate similarly to the Roush suggestion (5/8"). After install they settled to only 1.5" of level. I pulled them back off and set them to the original setting and I am now almost spot on a 2" off level. I fit 295/70 R18 and could have gone to a full 35". Wheel offset is +20. No rubbing under any conditions. I lost 1" in the back with this kit. Im okay with it since I was at 4.5" of rake before and now 1.5" of rake (looks level in person). FX4 with max tow reallyade the truck ass up.

Nice. Simple and aggressive looking without being overdone. I don’t know about a 2.25”, but I’m thinking I’ll eventually want to do a 1”-1.5” level on mine.

For those that can’t, or don’t have time for the video:

Absolutely love this look, looks perfect for a daily driven vehicle, not too aggressive, thanks for posting!

"Efficiency" on the freeway maybe. But I didn't buy my F150 for the freeway. I bought it for the muddy, rutted mountain roads.

I have a Honda Pilot (which I hate by the way) for the “Freeway”. (My wife loves it!)

I need “clearance” but I also need as low a center of gravity as possible and as much traction as I can get.

“Leveling”.

More tread, more clearance… “mo betta!”

;)

Really like this look, new to having a truck (have ‘21 Plat PB fx4)…two quick questions:
1. The 2.5 level, did you do that yourself, at a shop, at ford dealer?
2. Those tires look great? How do they perform off road/snow? How’s the road noise?
Thanks, great looking truck!
