    It has been discussed. It has been answered.

    Not without substantial cutting.

    Not sure if this will help, but I am running Geiser springs up front and Deaver +3 in the rear with 37" tires and 1.5" wheel spacers in the rear. I have the spacers for the front, but I left them off due to rubbing concerns. That said, I love how the truck looks. From my perspective, the stance is mostly dictated from the rear and not the front, so I notice very little difference without the spacers in the front. If you want to minimize additional modification, you could potentially do the same thing and have different wheel offsets for the front verses the rear. I know running wheel spacers for off-roading is not the best, but my truck is predominately used to commute and tow my other off-road toys, so it is working well for me.

    I realize it will need to be trimmed but was wondering if anyone out there did it and how much trimming was done. I looked all night and get conflicting story’s. Also why do some raptors have the honeycomb behind the liners and others don’t. My friend has a 17 and it does but my 18 doesn’t

    What’s your wheel offset and how much did you trim

    As has been said many times, stick with OEM wheels if you don't want to cut. And a 2" lift/level/spring/collar, etc.

    I have Geisers and Deaver +3's on +01mm offset wheels. I had to pull the honeycomb in the rear of the fender by the firewall and roll the pinch welds. I trimmed a small piece of liner too, about 1x2 inch slice at the bottom. Cant tell the mod has been done. Also, due to the Ridge Grapplers being on the larger side and closer to a true 37" tire, I had to make a small trim on the gray plastic fender molds. The top of the molds rubbed at full extension but not around town. Decided to put new glass on it tho, it is going in the shop monday morning.

    My 18 doesn’t have the honeycomb it’s just empty space behind the liners. Any idea why?

    I will never understand why people pay 70k plus for a truck set up perfectly for it's intended purpose...THEN...start modifying the suspension...you know..the very thing they paid up for in the first place. If it's about looks then why not buy a much cheaper F150 and have at it...If it's about improving what Ford has engineered then I'm afraid you are destined to fail with any bolt on modification. Try jumping with 37s and see how it works out for ya...LOL If you have to stiffen or raise the suspension to accomodate the tires then you've altered the design geometry of the truck and that just seems like a sad thing to do to something so well engineered.

    It’s sad you have to knock what other people do. If you don’t want to do it then fine don’t I’m sure people dont tell you that your wrong for not doing it.
