    Would SVC IFP adjustable bump stop kit help with payload in the "payload" setting, and then also adjust to upwards to a nice "Offroad" mode to utilize stock travel?

    Sorry, don't know enough, but curious if this type of setup would give some better payload capacity (not sure how much) and then benefit of adjust-ability.

    This is such a portentous response. The payload sucks. That's not really debatable. You can literally be over your payload with 4 men and a Yeti cooler. I already admitted that I overlooked the payload but for you to state that I'm using the the truck for something it wasn't designed to do is simply foolish. I want to take a little bit of wood uptah camp in my F150 pickup truck. Your comparison to GT500 off-road isn't even remotely comparable.

    I was thinking about that. It's really not a bad option

    Ok sparky.

    In your opinion, the payload sucks.

    I never said you’re using the truck how it’s not suppose to be used. You’re just exceeding its DESIGNED limits.

    You seem to have a hard time reading and comprehending. I was not criticizing you. I was criticizing your comment that the payload sucks. It’s not like ford said it would hold 10k pounds and it only does 6k.

    YOU thought the raptor is a basic F150 in hauling. YOU didn’t do any research. YOU didn’t buy the right production for your application.

    Fine, I'll take that the GT500 wasn't ideal but the point was, what something is DESIGNED to do, and what it CAN do, are two very different things. You've clearly discovered that.

    And it’s spelled pretentious.

    For what its worth, I put gen1 timbrens on my gen2. They are shorter and allow for more travel before engaging the stops. You'll have a bit more sag when loaded up but at the same time you'll preserve more of your suspension travel.

    This is with right at 1000lbs payload between trailer, stuff in bed, and me.
