The Zone 1" spacers won't work to level out the Wildtrak with HOSS?

I was told by zone it would work and now I see on their website description that it started it won't work with Hoss 3.0 🤷🏻‍♂️, I bought the kit since they said it would work, I might still rip one side apart to find out if it really does work.

I’m looking for reviews from anyone who installed the APG HOSS 3.0 Spring Perch Collar. These collars are supposed to increase the front and rear ride height.

https://www.rpgoffroad.com/product/bronco-hoss-3-0-spring-perch-collar/

I really just want to level my Bronco, but I can’t find leveling kits for the Wildtrak w/ HOSS.
I was hoping someone has tried this kit cause I'm sure the wildtrak would look sick with a 2.5" front and 1.5" rear lift, but I'm not 100 on the idea of changing the spring rate on the Hoss 3.0 springs. Would hate to ruin a great riding bronco for a look.

My thoughts exactly. Wouldn’t it be great to spend less than $100 just to level the front?!

I've been looking for something as well. I love the way this thing rides, but it does have a lot of rake. 2.7 is quite a bit heavier than a 2.3 so I'm guessing that you get more downward rake in the 2.7's 🤷‍♂️

I would never put a 2+ inch perch collar on this suspension. It would (IMO) ruin the beautiful tuned fox shocks ride you get with the new Wildtraks.

Fabtech has one coming out that I'm guessing will be a spacer kit with new upper control arms. It may have a partial .5" perch similar to the Zone 1221 Saquatch 2 inch lift.
I don't have all the details yet, but I've called Fabtech and they are testing it.
I've been told it will be released late January/early February 2023.
I'm definitely going to put this on when available and put on some turbomac HD's and Ridge Grappler 35x12.5's

Anything new with the Leveling the HOSS 3.0 , 4 door version... also, I think the shocks were designed for the 2.7 cause that's all that is available in HOSS 3.0..

my best measurements is
38¾ front
40 rear

Is that what yall are seeing?

We work closely with the RPG team, while we have not had experience with their 3.0 perch collar, we know their products are top notch and would absolutely vouch for their amazing quality and superior design over competition. They go above and beyond.

Have used RPG collars on my Gen 2 and Gen 3 raptors. All have worked well leveling. My suggestion is to less vs more if there is an option. It will def stiffen up the ride substantially. Handles great but you will lose some of that Cushy ride feeling as a daily driver. Gen 2 needed 2 1/4 Gen 3 only needed 1 and a 1/2 and I like the ride more...

I just received the rpg collars (2.25 front and rear) I am worried that it will ruin the cushy ride as this is my daily driver. But I’m going to see how it goes. I figure I can always

I have 1” of rake. I have 37s to put on also along with the hammer built tailgate reinforcement. Hopefully with the added weight on the rear the rake will decrease slightly.

I will post pictures when installed. Will be a couple of weeks before I can get to it though.

I think you will still like it as there are benefits but it will firm up. Can play with tire air pressure to help as well. You are also on 37s so you have a bit more Cush than a smaller tire as well.

I was all set to do this as I just wanted a little more space between my fenders and tires.
As an engineer, I couldn't wrap my head around how this would not affect the ride. I did a lot of research and it turns out, it will stiffen up the ride. I just can't bring myself to do it.
I don't want to say "It's not that bad..." in terms of ride.

IF I do something, I might do a small 1/2 - 3/4" body lift. It won't affect anything with the suspension and will give me the small amount of lift I'm looking for.

Looking forward to your review.
