8k should get you there and perhaps even better performance than a stock Raptor. I by no means saying the Raptor is some untouchable machine. But 1500 sure is hell wont get you there.

You would need 2.5" or better shocks on all 4 corners, a set of Dever or National rear leafs, LCA's, UCA's and tie rods. Even then your still missing out on all the electronic goodies, like off road mode.

Stage III rear is real plush. If your just in a regular F-150 I would not go with 3.0's, the shock mounts are not as strong as the Raptors.

Yeah I've read that a few places..looks like stage 3 will be fine,i wonder if the fiberglass fenders would allow for stock raptor wheels and tires
