I have the same air filter, I am just driving mine a bit so I can hopefully tell a difference. And I am throwing on beadlocks. I am also debating about running 37X13.50s, but I want to confirm travel and zero rubbing issues. Anyone run 13.50s with input?
I am also wondering if possible to install brembo kit and 37x13.5R22 wheels on these. Looks like Nitto has sweet tires for 22 wheels, Recon Grapplers. It is also the only truck tire rated for 106 MPH (R) instead of normal 99MPH (Q).

Luv your truck, everything about it works and looks killer. I also know 37X13.50r17 will fit, and they are completely drivable around town. What I am wondering is what happens at full compression. I have heard they might rub while off roading, I don't know. Please help! Stuff those tires, and let us know if they rub?
Haha, well it didn't blow the flares off when jumping a railroad track, so at least that is confirmed. I realize it's different when doing a full stuff and hard turn at the same time though. These trucks are mall crawlers anyway, aren't they?;)

Please tell me you’re not installing 22 wheels on a R..?
Say it ain’t so…

Raptors are meant to Offroad

Did my first Raptor R mod today!

Well really my mod today was just a little upgrade, but thought to start this thread for everyone to post their mods and upgrades!

I’ll have many more to come in the near future and am looking forward to seeing everyone’s mods/builds!

Post ‘‘em up!

Today’s R Upgrade:
Ford Performance Air Filter
Part Number: M-9601-G
*You’ll want to put the cover back on after installing the new filter

View attachment 391808

Picking my R up in a few hours. I feel like a kid on Christmas morning. Wondering if there is any kind of “break in” period for these? Thx for the post. I’ll be ordering this.

Nice! Congratulations!
I was told to not fully slam the throttle from a complete stop till around 1000 miles, however I’m also told that Ford Performance tests each one which is why they get delivered with around 40-50 miles on them from Ford. So I assume they fully test everything.
