What do you recommend running in the rear for an even look front and rear?

Will the backspace/offset of OEM raptor wheels/tires work fine with this?

Any issues running the Bilstein 5100 with the spindles?

I'm not with Baja/Brenthal but 17's need 5.0 back spacing and raptors are 6.3 or so.

Need around 0 offset wheel

@Baja Kits

I'll buy a kit right now if you make a 2" lift spindle, 4" is too high for a level.

Possible? Yes but are ya'll willing to make it? That is the $1,000.00 question.

I sent in a product request for the same info on the website before I found this thread. What say ye?

P.S. I really don't want that .5" out spacing either so if it's possible to make them not stick out farther than stock would be ideal. I would hate to space the rear wheels out to match but will if it's a must.

We don't recommend it as we have not tested it with spacer lifts, nor did we design the geometry of the lift spindle with them in mind. You most likely can use them without issues, but we can't advise that as there are too many unknowns.

A lot of people like the raked look. There is no reason you can not run a block in the rear for a true level look.

Correct. However the White FX2 is running 35s in the photo posted. Here are the photos running 37s:

Sorry there isn't enough market for that product. Most customers want the 4" lift to fit 35" tires, and 2" wouldn't be enough to accomplish that.

Is it cost prohibitive to make just one set? More than willing to pay in advanced.

Yea it is, mainly due to design costs and prototyping.
