    37" tire guidance please!

    @Smokey That's really mean looking. That's exactly the kinda thing I'm going for. And I don't intend to "general lee" my truck off anything, but I do want the option to enjoy nearly full compression at speed. I really appreciate the feedback.

    37" tire guidance please!

    @Donmatteo yeah, from my reading of the PA vehicle codes, it's legal as long as it's a DOT approved tire. My local stealership refused to install the rings because they wouldn't issue a sticker. They really suck though, they wouldn't install my foglight kit either. I've since reached out to...

    37" tire guidance please!

    @Ryan C and @BoostCreep Dammit... Stop making it hard for me. I'm okay with bending the welds, though I'd probably need some professional assistance. I'd be using the stock wheels.... unless I end up with Enkei RPT1s at some point (I'm a huge Enkei RPF1 fanboy, and I love the double...

    37" tire guidance please!

    First, thanks for the help and pointing me to the relevant resources. Second.... Having thoroughly reviewed most of the relevant "keep it dirty - off road" videos.... Yeah, I'm not going to do it. I don't live in the American Southwest, so it's unlikely that I'll ever have the opportunity to...

    37" tire guidance please!

    There's a lot to chew on here... Doing 37s may be beyond my abilities. I really like the way they look though, and the increased volume in the tires, etc would really be nice to have. I'll keep looking particularly at this guy's videos. He seems like a great resource.

    37" tire guidance please!

    I did not know that... Now I do. Thanks!

    37" tire guidance please!

    That's a super helpful perspective. I may have additional questions after I watch the aforementioned video.

    37" tire guidance please!

    Thanks. That's valuable input. I guess I'm asking what I need do to retain the usability and not create a ****-show.... I'm keenly interested in more volume (air) and more angles...

    37" tire guidance please!

    I mean, theoretically, there's slightly improved approach, breakover, departure angles... I'm not worried about slowing it down too much, the tune on it really rips... and I'm planning a bit more on that department over the winter. Thanks for the input.

    37" tire guidance please!

    I do some limited off road stuff. And I take it to the beach occasionally. I'm not likely to do much desert blasting type of stuff as I live in southeast PA. Ideally I'd like to keep the ability to articulate at low speeds for some of the trails around the PA coal country...

    37" tire guidance please!

    You seem to have a bit more lift than I'm looking for. Do you know what you're running? I'm looking for less, that's why I'm asking....

    37" tire guidance please!

    So you're saying something like the eibach springs +2.5 inches and conceivably nothing in the rear and I'd be good? I'd probably do +2 deavers in the rear. I'm looking for as little lift as possible while keeping the rub to a minimum. I want to retain the ride and handling characteristics as...

    37" tire guidance please!

    Good morning gentlemen, With my current tune, I've roasted my back tires a bit. I'm considering replacing them (and upgrading the fronts) with 37s. I plan on running the stock wheels with the Ford beadlock kit. I don't desire a ton of "lift" but I'd like to fit the tires and have no rub day...

    Procharger FMIC? or nah?

    I went with the Wagner... from what I've seen it fits about the same.

    Dyno Results from R/T Tuning

    I'm taking donations for a tire fund... it's my understanding that K02s are a bit pricey to replace. Feel free to contribute.

    Dyno Results from R/T Tuning

    Thanks @CoronaRaptor. The sound in the cab under full steam, is pretty damn fun. No drone so far, but the Downpipes make a fairly big difference in the daily driving experience. When the torque hits, it is wild.

    Dyno sheet, and I did start my own thread on this topic, but I thought it might be helpful for the followers here.

    Dyno Results from R/T Tuning

    Good Afternoon everyone... I wanted to share my results and enthusiasm with all of you fine people. In another thread I promised to start my own once I had results here they are. Max torque is happening way earlier, the area under the curve is drastically changed, peak horsepower is around...

    Inspection Issue at the Dealer

    Just thought I'd follow up here.... I went to my local guy. He had no problem passing me. I put the covers I bought from 4X4TruckLEDs on the lights I could reach, just for good measure. I'll not be going back to that dealer unless there's some kind of warranty repair or something. At one...

    New Raptor project

    Update. It's fast. I'll post the dyno sheet when I can. The max delta is over 100hp, the peak power difference is around 80hp. 346 baseline stock whp, and I think it's 422 tuned whp. The area under the curve is incredible. The sound, the transmission... everything is vastly improved. I'm...

    I'm hoping for quick. Or break-neck... that kinda thing. Hopefully these will be a good foundation for follow-on mods.

    Raptor Assault

    I was registered for May 2020, but I had to bail to respond to civil unrest in my city.... Can anyone verify if they had success with getting them to extend 1-yr eligibility?

    I have a 2019... it's completely stock at the moment, but I'll post my before and after WHP to this and I'll create my own post after I do my stuff. My tuner is installing some cool stuff the week of the 8th. Wagner IC, SPD turbo adapters, Kooks Green Catted DPs, Cobb AP with a protune and TCM...

    Cam phasers?

    @FordTechOne As others have said, you're a really excellent resource here and we're all better off for your insider perspective. That said, can you possibly enlighten me? I've searched the forum and done lots of clicking and can't figure it out on my own... My build date is June 2019 for my...
