HEY ALL!

Exciting news. I received my Fox 2.0 Front Coilovers / Rear Shocks from @Stage3Motorsports a few days ago and had them put on the same day.
This kit is BRAND NEW FOR THE 21-22 4WD. It just came out - so I decided to give it a shot. Gotta say, Im damn happy I did.

First off, I have a 22 XLT 302a Space White 4x4 Sport (not fx4) and with stock tires, ground to top of fender in the front measured 37.25, rear 39.75.

PROS
ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE RIDE DIFFERENCE. I honestly can't rave enough about the ride quality. They ride like a dream in every way. Starting off the line, cornering, potholes, ruts you name it. I Will update this post after I take it off road. To be honest these would be worth it no matter what situation you are in.

CONS
Did NOT give me the full 2 inches of lift. but It came close... front now measures at 39. So a net of 1.75 maybe a smidge more. Kinda sucks, but Im not gonna pay for anymore additional strut labor - so im leaving it as is.

After much heated debate raging within my own head about tire size - I decided to go with a 275/70/18 tire. Ive read on here some people can fit the 295/70/18 with a level and no trimming, but others who can't. Im not gonna chance that not working, AND the Toyo AT3s I am picking up tomorrow only weigh 52Lb.

I will post photos once its complete (suspension/tires, not done color matching yet) But here is a picture of it with the fox suspension installed, with the stock tires (Goodyear Territory AT 275/65/18, Says its 32, but with a tape measure its actually 31.4) And my method wheels I took from my 18 3.5EB.

UPDATE 8/5/22
Hey Guys! wanted to give you guys an update after installing the tires!
I chose the toyo at3, size 275/70/18. I Understand I could POSSIBLY fit bigger tires, but considering this is a daily driver also, I went with the safe bet. Glad I did, I think it looks perfect. Ride Firmed up a bit more with the 10 ply, but that's to be expected! Here are some photos!

I echo the sentiment that the ride is very very good. Unfortunately with my Powerboost though I am going to have to adjust them - I barely got any lift

Yes sir. Surprisingly all 275/70 tires I’ve come across are. The only size about that I’ve seen with an 18in wheel that is an SL or XL tire is 295/70/18 Nitto Terra Grappler G2.

275/70/R18 shouldn’t be E load i don’t think
It is an E rated. I just replied to one of the other guys about it as well in the thread.

Ouch that sucks. I am kinda irked that it came in .25 short. I know it may seem trivial but I did pay good money for
This product and it advertises at 2 inches, so that’s what it should be. There should have been a disclaimer on it stated that different engines get Different heights

They're advertised as 0"-2". They are adjustable.

I have had the same Fox suspension installed and about 2000 road miles on them. I agree with everything that has been said, including not getting the full 2 inches of lift. However, I wanted to maintain some rake, so it is not a deal breaker for me. I have not taken them off road yet, however.

I got the full 2” on mine. Although they had to repeat the whole install twice (second time at shops expense). First time they did it I had a squat. This was when they advertised the older version as the same fit for 2021’s. Got to echo the sentiment about the ride quality. It’s so much better!

Thanks for the summary Thomas. Did you install the new shocks at the factory setting or did you have them adjusted to maximize the lift/height? I know the new shocks are adjustable...
