    Just tinted 20% and did Mid-Perch and 2" drop in the rear for nice stance.

    Looks sinister,

    Why in the name of sweet jeddidiah smith would you lower your rear end by 2"?

    Is this a reverse Raptor to F150 conversion? How did you lower it? Just pulled the block out?

    The raptor can probably spare 2", but just for looks? which are subjective?

    Or by stance do you mean lower center of gravity, and roll?

    Personally I cant stand the "stink bug" look. This is just personal preference so not knocking anybody if they like that. The truck feels better IMO when i have the pedal hammered and into a turn;) Truth be told, I have 5 kids and my Raptor will be a street queen with runs to Pismo, Big Bear and some donuts on my kids soccer field but no Baja so the minimal loss in travel in the rear im OK with. I did a drop shackle to bring her down and super happy with it. Cheers!!!

    Right on man, you did it properly! Makes perfect sense.

    I bet the performance change is dramatic,
