Is there a straightforward way to go about doing this? I dont need lockers, or anything special. I plan on getting the 4.27 gearing on the OBX, and will get LT275/70R18 (33.2") over the stock 32.1", and slightly bigger than Badlands 32.7". I am keeping the rims. Not sure if that will rub, but either way, I still want the lift, to mimic the Badlands stance.

I havent done this before. What parts would be required? How much should I expect to pay? Open to any recommendations.

Thanks!

No one knows yet but there probably will be not long after release.

Back in the day...we used to install A/C spacers on top of our coil springs...speed shops still sell them...some work entails to install...remove shock and ball joint...if you never played with ball joints...leave it to pro...hth

For an inch total tire size difference I would bet you don’t need a lift at all. And adding a .5-1 inch lift would be a waste of time, $ and potentially open up a can of worms for other components that need to be adjusted or updated.

I am thinking about doing the same as you however no lift. I just want to fill the wheel well more with tire

I'd def research lifts on raptors and rangers. I would think they have some insight since alot of the same components. Not exactly. Def be worth the research in my opinion!

Might also just experiment with a MT. A 32 MT going to just you a hair more lift.
