Why would you add a leveling kit? The front is adjustable and is better on mid perch. Adding a leveling kit just decreases performance.

I added the leveling kit because mine is not adjustable and there is no option that raises it enough to clear 35 inch tires 0 offset so to gain the extra 3 inches in widh I needed a 1.25 increase... although it is a 2 inch leveling kit it only raises it 1.25 inches... and no its not a garage queen, will see action in the outlaw raptor expeditions.....

Did you swap out your front suspension? If not then yours is adjustable. The mid perch and highest setting would have made it possible to run those tires if all you needed was 1" or so! Looks good either way!

All Raptors have adjustable front suspension. There are 3 perch settings. I recommend moving the perch setting to middle and ditching the leveling kit. Way better performance and also safer.
