    That's hilarious. Rumor has it those strollers have more bed capacity than full size Raptors. :)

    I could have probably lasted another season or two before the fronts waisted. But that would have put me in winter conditions to change brakes. I’ll stick to summer lol

    I don't think they stick out too too much, maybe an inch. I have been running beadlocks for about 2 years. It was a great idea for Ford to include that.

    Got an inch of rain in an hour Saturday and Dad called to tell me the road was flooded. I made a bee line straight for it! Waited for the utility truck to clear the wash and then signaled for the Jeep Wrangler next to me to go. He was too scared. Wound up going back thru it 2 more times

    what lower light bar did you install? I have a 20" KC Hilites 20" bar I want to install also in the lower grill, however, KC does not make a factory mount for the location and I can't get a guarantee fit from Stage 3 Motorsports for the KC light???

    So thats with 1.5 spacers which essentially makes the stock beadlocks 0 offset. The beadlocks add probably another 1 inch...so if i take out the spacers I'm .5 in from what i feel the "sweet spot" is. Anyways +2+2 boatecs solve my problem aaaand i should've got 37s!
    Also is like to add, the stock shocks do much better up front with stock offset. If you think about it there is less leverage. So when you go to 0 you kinda need 3.0s
    ... it's a deep rabbit hole
    Last pic is raptor 2. (Stock) Way to far inside the fenders for my liking
