As others have said, they are one of the best mods you can do for your truck. On and off-road

Question for you, for any of you. My Raptor isn't in yet and I am trying to assemble my parts ahead of time. I carry a 750 lb atv most all the time. And with that short 5.5' box, most of that weight will be behind the axle. I have ordered the front 1.5" collar and I am thinking I need the +2 Deavers and that I need to leave the blocks in. I can see myself having a lot of sag. I don't know if going with +3 and taking the blocks out is the right idea for me. Need all the advice I can get.

Definite no go with blocks + Deavers. Maybe look into an airbag setup if you feel the +3's aren't going to cut it. Deaver may be able to make you a custom setup to suit your needs also.

Got My +3s and an RPG bump kit today at Texas Motorworx, then drove 600 miles home. I only did the RPG 1.5" collar for now, so I also had them use the SDHQ 1" drop shackles so that I can bump to a 3" collar and normal size tig shackles when I go to 37s. It is a tad "stinkbug", but only by about 3/8".

HUGE difference. Couldn't be happier with the results. Way more planted. no more axle wrap. Still cushy, but not too soft.

For anyone in Texas, check out TMX. There are some seriously awesome trucks there and the guys are super knowledgeable.

I wish they were closer to Austin. I have RPG collars I need installed and there doesn't seem to be any capable shops in Austin.

Get with Dan in San Antonio.
Tell him Rick recommended the place. They do excellent work. They know Raptor's (the owners have them) and can do practically any mod work you want.
