I have seen a lot of talk about the Ready Lift Level kit, but I decided to go with the Rough Country Kit because you get the front strut spacer and rear shocks for less than what the Ready Lift kit goes for.

Just wondering if anyone with a 2021 has decided to purchase this kit? If you have please post pics when you get a chance! My truck is on order so it will be some time before I get this kit installed.

Well, got my kit. Only took three days to get. Rough Country ships quick! Anyway, just wanted to post a pic of the kit itself. Still waiting on the truck before I can install it. It is the RC 2" Level with the N3 Rear Shocks and Block kit. I got the .25" wheel spacers. I don't want them sticking out past the fender well....just want them pushed out a hair.

Dang, I just ordered the Leveling Kit without the shocks and it says they won't ship out until February 23rd at the earliest. Oh well, more time to research the wheel and tire setup I wanna go with!

I was you, I'd get a Nice 295/70/18 tire and keep those black wheels...your truck will look sharp! Were you ever able to get pics of the truck outside with the black wheels??

Yeah I thought about it but I think I’ll keep this set for winter or long hauls for better fuel economy and get another set of 17’s or 18’s with some 34’s or 35’s for the summer and looking nice and off-roading. I considered doing upgraded shocks as well but with the truck being brand new and only adding a spacer up front I couldn’t justify it. If I blow the stock shocks off-roading or something then I’ll be able to upgrade but with such a mild setup it’s not necessary yet.

I haven't gotten any pictures of the truck in the sun while clean but I’ve got a couple that I’ll throw in the Leadfoot thread here on the forum so as not to clutter up a Leveling thread with a stock truck.

OP: Did you install your kit? Did you need a camber adjustment kit as well? I want to order the same leveling pucks you got but wasn't sure if I should order a camber kit right away or not

I installed the RC 2” spacers. Left a slight rake (what I was going for so the truck doesn’t squat when hauling/towing). Truck rides very close to factory. Got a full alignment after I installed them. I didn’t install a camber adjustment kit.

You will not need a camber kit. A regular alignment after the install should be perfectly fine.

this is a little more technical now, but does anyone know if the 2020 f150 alignment specs are the same as a 21? My friend can do the alignment for me at his shop but their machine only goes to 2020, I’d rather take my business to him for an alignment rather than the dealer as long as the specs are the same

you should be able to fit 35's on stock wheels.
if you are going to run a lower offset wheel then you are going to want to stick with 34" tires.

I was hoping for 285 65/20 with non factory wheels. Hopefully the biggest possible without trimming.
