We just put the 2" kit on ours. It's 2wd though, and I've noticed that it does NOT lift it as high as it does previous models. These trucks have a bigger stock rake than before, which I do not like. I have 305/55/20s and they rub the corners of my plastic valance sometimes. I had the same setup on an 05 F150 with the same size tires, and had no issues at all. Truck is 3 weeks old, but we may be trading it back in for a 4wd (if I can find one) ;)

I ordered both kits and will post side by side to
Include hardware. Hopefully that will help you guys. Also, I ordered BDS 4” lift, so my uninstalled ready lift 2” level kit (2021) will most likely be for sale.
Where did you find a BDS 4" kit for a 2021? I looked on their site, and they, like everyone else, only go up to 2020.

For being only a 2" level the new RL level looks like it lifts the front end up a ton on these trucks. I've done a 2" level and larger tires on every one of my personal trucks and the trucks I'm seeing with this kit look very tall in the front. I like it.

For all those curious, the correct leveling kit for your truck will not interfere with any suspension level sensors, adaptive cruise control, 360 cams, lane departure or your heated steering wheel. It's literally a spacer that spaces the top of your strut from the strut mount and that's it. You don't even need to manually adjust your headlights anymore if you have a 502a+.
Not the case on an XLT 2wd 302a package. Just FYI

I don't mean to detract from the thread, but any details on your wheels as far as width and offset? look like XD Grenades which I like, but I'm curious what width and offset you went with and if you have a picture from the front or back of the truck which shows how much they poke out past the fender. While helping me and others know what fits, it might also shed some light as to why you're rubbing as well.

No problem. Yes, they are XD Grenades (matte black) 20x9 w/ 18mm offset on 305/55/20 TOYO OC AT2 Extremes. I don't have any pics that show how they stick out, but it's only about an inch. I don't like when they stick out far. These wheels either come in 18mm or 0mm offset for this truck. 0mm will stick out another 1-2inches.

The reason I made my original comment about issues with the lift/wheels is that this truck actually sits lower than older models (2wd), so these tires (which do not normally have issues with turning on a level) barely rub the outside lower corner of the rubber valance when I turn sometimes. It's not really a big deal, bc I just trim the valance corner a little and it's fine. I just wish the truck actually sat higher like my 05 did. When someone comes out with a 4" lift for the new 2wd, I will just switch to that though.

2021 F-150 Powerboost
Hey Guys,

Just a heads up. The 2.0 levelling kit is not compatible nor has it been tested or tried on the powerboost model.

I just spent a very long weekend getting it to fit and I did not have a pleasant time doing it.

Worse, when I finally got in touch with Readylift today their response was incredible. They said that I (we) should not accept their website compatibility check, but should email or call them every time to make sure something fits.

Very weird, I can't imagine doing that with a reputable company's website. It's not like there are thousands of models of F150's out there.

A simple note that says the kit has not been tested with the Powerboost model would suffice, but I guess that is too much work for them.

I'm not impressed with Readylift.

Hey All,

A few days ago I had a local shop install the Ready Lift 2.0inch level kit on my 2021 F150 PB Lariat 4WD 502a. I paired it with a set of Nitto Ridge Grapplers 35X11.5XR20 on stock wheels. So far I have been very happy. No rubbing and minimal change to how it drives. Too early to tell what effect it will have on MPG, but i'm sure it will have a negative impact based on how heavy these tires are. I have noticed a vibration/shutter under me when I try to accelerate at higher speeds (50mph+), but I noticed this prior to the level and its seem to have gotten worse. Any ideas what this is? Also, happy to try and answer any questions on the level/tire setup.

I have a similar set up as you, as far as powerboost with2' level, I went with aftermarket wheels and the Ridge Grapplers in 295/60/20. There are many members experiencing the shutter you speak of. I too had the issue before the lift and wheels. I also have an issue with skipping second gear. I have been waiting over a month to get into my local dealer. You can search for the shutter in the search option. There's plenty of info for you to sift through. I can also tell you I lost 3-4 mpg's with my setup. My speedometer is only 1 MPH off.

Late to the party but adding a pic of my truck that was leveled this week with the 2" readylift kit. Hands free and all driver assist works without issues

Is it still working well and did you have any of the highway rattle issue?

Awesome, what was your experience with increasing the tire size? do you think a 34.3" 295/70r18 would fit without rubbing or is it better to still to a 33.2" 275/70r18? (I haven't found many tires made in 285/70r18, just the NITTO Recon grappler)

Sorry to dredge this thread up but my Discount Tire just confirmed the new Falken At4W comes in a 285/70r18!

Based on my testing that's the max size I can get to clear on the front through the suspension's full range of motion with no rub on a 18x9 +18 wheel.
