They won't be inexpensive, but..... (don't you just love it when people say BUT... 🤣)... the Old Man Emu BP-51 shocks are impressive as all get out. They ride exceptionally smooth on/road and then really smooth out the terrain when things get going off-road.

The ones below are for the Ranger.

Diff drops are used on IFS rigs to lessen the CV operating angles after a lift. Has nothing to do with fender trimming.

Fender trimming is definitely my preferred way to get bigger tires without big lifts.

Hopefully with the removable fenders on the Bronco, we'll see a few companies tackle replacement fenders for big clearance.
As I said before, if people trimmed their fenders, they wouldn’t need to lift so high as to need a diff drop. Understand the relation? Mostly I think of Chevy trucks and their stupid designed fenders and the need for a ridiculous lift to run tires that should have plenty of room otherwise.

Trim, lift less, have better CV angles, no need for a diff drop. See?

I get it and even posted that fender trimming is my preferred method. But that's not what you said.

This kit does not include the gears you need for bigger tires.

I have tried bigger tires with no gear change and it was not good.
