    Second vote for Texas Motoworx, just drive down to their shop and take a look. They won’t steer you wrong and there’s always a bunch of gen 1 & 2 raptors in there to check out.

    $2k is not going to be enough... thatll cover tires but that about it. I do not recommend spacers of any kind. The correct way would be to increase shock travel in the front and springs in the back. I believe a decent pair of springs are gonna be $2k right off the bat and that's before looking at bump stops. If this is purely for looks then get a spacer and bigger tires. If this is for function and form then you're gonna need 3x your budget

    Texas Motorworx is the only place I trust with my Raptor.
    there's really no reason to go anywhere else in the metroplex. do yourself a solid and go see the guys over at TMX.

    fwiw, they installed my eibach / Deaver +3's... I'm now considering bumping up to 37's

    I am running 37" KO2's with Geiser springs up front and Deaver+3 in the rear and love the setup. The cost of the springs will be right around $2K, so you will just need to find another $700 to $1K for the spring installation and wheel alignment, in addition to, about $1400 for the tires. I would strongly suggest researching the options and doing it right the first time. If not, you will end up spending a lot more when you decide to do it right in the future due to lost labor and replacing parts.

    To get me started, could I install the Eibachs in the front and put on the 35s and just leave it at that? In other words, could I do this and then wait to do the Deavers in the back? Or is that going to just change the direction of my rake from nose down to tail down? I don't carry a load in the bed that often. Also planning on stopping by Texas Motoworx when I get a chance. Appreciate all the feedback.

    There is SOOOOO much more to running 37s on a raptor than doing a lift. If your plan is for a mall crawler then fine but if intend to do off road and retain any reliability/performance then you have to spend thousands to do it right. Buy once cry once is correct but in this case a lift alone won't cut it...again...unless you are only planning it to be a street princess.

    I talked to the experts today at Texas Motorworx. Funny how they can convince you to exceed your budget by knowing their shit. Gonna go with the Eibachs, Deaver+3, bump stop, and Toyo R/T 35s.

    Sounds like a good setup.
