    Of course. All other things being equal, horizontal will ride better though.

    I think there's a lot of confusion on this thread. I absolutely understand everyone has a personal preference of how their ideal Raptor looks cosmetically. Some prefer the OEM look and some prefer a modified look. But throughout the discussions, it sounds as if we're only considering three options: it stays OEM, performs as designed and is a good daily driver, level it, or you lift it to the sky and it is useless. Myself, I like a more robust and wider stance than stock, but I refuse to lose the usability of the OEM setup. So for those that want a more aggressive look than OEM, but still retain all usability I'd recommend Geisers and Deavers. I've given mine a taller and wider stance plus 37x13.50s, while still maintaining it's off-road usability and daily drivability. Plus, it still fits in my garage. I'm just saying it doesn't have to be bone stock, levelled or lifted to the sky. 20181110_150347.jpg 20190511_115758.jpg

    Holy smokes. Just the opposite. I could care less about MPG. I was only responding to your statement: "Thats fine, but the setting arent for "MAXIMUM PURE PERFORMANCE", they are more "LETS KEEP DOT HAPPY AND KEEP MPG LOW".

    And: "Yes, rake affects gas mileage. In a world where they are trying to squeak out every drop of gas with 10 speed trannys, auto start/stop, etc, it makes a difference."

    Now you are saying just the opposite.

    I'm done with MPG, as the OP never mentioned it.

    Your suspension setup
    Is exactly what I want to do, but I have no desire to run 37”s...I thought the 35”s May look a little smallish or of place w/ the geyser/deaver setup b/c of more gap in the fender wells, but looking @ your truck while it def looks badass there’s no denying the tires look a tad too big- really from front to back- the gap between fender & tire looks perfect though. Maybe doesn’t appear that way in person.

    How much taller you think your truck sits vs a standard F150 4x4 on factory 20”s? 4.5-5”? It’s gotta look dramatically different next to regular F150

    You know, I'm not exactly sure. I'm out of town now, but I can measure when I get home. It's definitely higher than a standard F150 or even a stock Raptor, but it still fits through an 8 foot garage door opening. I get what you're saying about the tires, like I said earlier, it's all about personal preference. However, it's all really well balanced in person. One other contributing factor to the tires appearing much larger is that they in fact are; because I went with 13.50s instead of the standard 12.50s most go with. Again, just my personal preference. I have seen other members on the forum (can't remember where, but you could search it) that have done the same setup with 35s and I thought they looked good also.
