2021 Ford F-150 King Ranch
Occupation

Purchased a new 2021 White King Ranch Powerboost on Monday (technically finalized purchase yesterday) and before taking possession I had them install a 2” level kit and 35” Nitto RidgeGrapplers. They tinted the front window to match the back and tinted the front windshield. They also installed a Retrax Tonneau cover.

I was looking for a simple upgrade to the stance and appearance. I personally prefer chrome over black. I love the stock rims and the offset they provide

Took them a day to get everything done and I had to wait until yesterday to pick her up (patience is not my strong suit).

Summary:
  • 2” Level Kit
  • 35” RidgeGrapplers
  • Tinted Windows (to match rear)
  • Tinted Windshield (50%)
  • Retrax MX Tonneau Cover
Here’s a few pictures. I will take some more at different angles in case anyone is interested.

Hope my new F-150 likes it as much as I do!!

This could be my favorite '21 so far. Are your tires 35x12.5r20's? Curious how your mileage is over time with the powerboost and oversized tires.

This is the same truck I have on order and should be delivered within the next week. I was curious on how it would look with a level and tires. I think it looks great! Did it change the ride any?

Looks so much better with the meaty tires! Which white color is that?

Looks absolutely beautiful! I am curious about your decision to go with Ridge Grappler 35X11.5 as compared to 285/65 r20's? What were the pro's that aligned with your decision, and how is the ride quality/comfort?

Is there even a difference? (Sincere question)

Yes, 35/12.5/20s are true 35s. So 35in in diameter and 12.5in wide.

285/65/20s are about 34.6in in diameter and 11.2in wide.

I don't think this is quite true as the Nitto website specs show:
35x11.50 being 34.76" x 11.42" (on 9.0" wheels) 71.40#
285/65 being 34.80" x 11.50" (on 8.5" wheels) 63.71#

so they are very similar in height/width but the 35x11.50 are considerably heavier

I also wonder what the difference is and if there are situations where one tire performs better than the other?

I was just going by the tire size comparison site. I should have thought to use Nitto's. Good call, though the OP has 35/12.5 so they are 12.52in wide according to Nitto.

NP - I'm trying to decide which tire/size to go with so I almost have the Nitto site memorized! I did see both 35x11.50 and 35x12.50 mentioned so not sure which the tires are but in any care the 35x** are much heavier than the 285/65 but they are all LT rated -seems to me going with the lighter tire would help MPG - are there any situations the heavier tires would be better?

Not sure about heavier tires in certain situations. I'm going with BFG KO2 285/65/20 with a 2in" level. Scheduled for install on Wednesday.

Any chance we could get a picture down the side of the truck to see how much poke there is? Thanks!
