Looks really nice, congrats!
Does the lift have any affect on the warranty from the factory? I’m on the fence if a lift is worth it for a Sasquatch BD. I’m sure the stick setup will be more than adequate after doing the rodeo, but just looking at options.

I am just getting the lift because I want it. I have 275/70/r18 KO2s on my Outer Banks. The lift is the 1" Rough Country. I am not changing the wheels. I can't find any I like with the same offset, and I don't want them to stick out past the flares.
Wow, thats my plan. Please let me know how that works. Those 275/70R18 tires are my preference, seem like the perfect size without going overboard on size, and they git. They must be E rated tires? And they fit the OEM wheels without buying new ones. Are they overly harsh riding? Noisey?

No, they are quiet and they ride great. I have them on my truck, too.

That is the best garage I've ever seen! I couldn't dream of a better combo. Congrats!!
i could. a classic 2 door next to a 2021 2 door woulda been way cooler. you figure an enthusiast would go with the classic body style.

Do the 275/70/r18 fit fine without rubbing or bumping? I'm assuming so since you said you just wanted the lift and didn't say you needed it. This is the size I have been thinking for my OBX but wasn't thinking of getting a lift. Seemed like the perfect size.

They look like the stock OBX running boards. I'm assuming the same as the ones you can order from Ford too.

It fits with no problems.

No. It's just a spacer lift not suspension. I've lifted rigs and modified many times and never had issue on warranty work. An inch or two lift with SAS would sit higher than this set up for sure. IMO it wouldn't make sense to pay for the SAS suspension only to tear it out.

Ha! Would've been cooler and was the original plan like many. But unlike the EB that rolled off the line weeks after ordered in May of 1975, Ford couldn't do the same in 2021, so a four door it is.

And I woke up to the reality I have kids and a dog. We'll own a two door one day hopefully.

Nice! I’m going with the carbonized grey as well and am curious what color retro stripes are you going with? Post some pics when you’re all done, please!
Here you go! From @Ridergraphix.

Very happy with how it turned out.
