Change out to the 35 tires from 37 - seems the cheapest, fastest and least likely to have real negative ramifications in handling for the truck.
Remember. That only lowers by 1 inch. Of the two inches that the tire total height is different only one inch is below the axles adding height. The other inch is above the axles.

Plus, add another 1/2" of snow/mud. I am the original poster and despite all the "hate" my following comments might generate, here goes:

The new Raptor that I would love to buy is, the new Raptor 35", standard seats, with a Raptor R engine package. Reasoning is that I want the high HP, but a lower height to fit in the garage. Standard seats are more comfortable (to me) than the Recaro "licensed" seats in the Raptor R, unless you just Baja your rig.

I have had two previous Raps, first with a 6.2 Ford Performance supercharged and my current 2018 with the V-6. V-6 performance is OK but I miss the V-8. Granted, I'm a product of the 60-70's and would dearly love to have back my 1968 Torino GT 396.

Raptor is my daily driver so the split is about 80% on-road and 20% high speed dirt off-road.

Does the FRS suspension with zero preload actually lower a Raptor…slightly? I’ve only had them preset to an inch of lift.

Ford never made made a GT 396. Only S code 390. Are you sure you aren't trolling?
