You can't add the appliqué because they have a different tailgate for the appliqué and without the appliqué.
I know that, but if you can get the dealer to order the correct tailgate when production comes back in and add the correct one as part of the deal, that would be an option is what I was saying.

10k in gas lol. Even at $7.00 that’s like 1430 gallons.
And then add in airline cost, mileage depreciation of your new truck, possible hotel and value of your time. Depending on how far it is, it might cost more than you think.

I understand all the associated costs, was just point out that it will not cost 10K in gas

I know, that was a joke based on these insane prices, haha. And really we are talking a 5k difference because it’s a matter of if you would want the 37 factory package or not and willing to pay for that vs. just throwing some 37’s on a 35.

That would be a very expensive option! Especially, time like these 2k- 3k minimum.

I put 37s on my 2018 this year and found lighter ones then the 35 Yokohama‘s I took off. Cost me $1,350 but I needed a set of tires anyway. I too want the my22 37 but I only want to spend 70k as I could not justify more than that on a half ton. I like the seats in the 37 package and some of the graphics as well.

I am actually in a similar situation as the OP. I am In cali and ordering a 37pp across the country. My total costs to make the trip out and back with everything is right at about 1.2k. Vehicle depreciation is nonexistent, used prices are well above what I am paying. 1.2k in travel cost to save 30k ADM is no a brainer.

Depending on what was the most appealing aspect of the 37 package to you would answer your question on this. If it were just coming down to the tires, I'd say for it wouldn't be worth it because that can be done afterwards. The unique interior on the 37 is really nice as are the wheels that come with that package. No applique is a big deal in my book though - gives the raptor a bit more of an identity.

Heres my opinion: depends on how bad you want the extra 2 inches. Theres a lot more that goes with the 37 inch package than just larger tires. Ford supplies all raptors with the 37 inch package with slightly larger shocks and a different tow crossbar to properly fit the larger tire under the bed.
You might be able to get away with adding 37s later by using stock wheels as for any offset will cause rubbing. Check out cletus McFarland with his 22 raptor on 35s. He swapped out for new wheels and 37s but had rubbing issues so settled for 35s with new wheels
