Yes they bolt in, you will need to either swap the wheel studs front or rear to match I don't remember which way it went but I think 14s were 14x1.5 thread where as 15+ went to 14x2.0 threads. I went to the 14 wheel studs but I wish I would have swapped the rear as the 14x1.5 are far less common. The rear brake lines need to be converted as the fittings were different. I am still running the 16 e-brake lines but I wish they were a little longer.

Come on you can make anything fit, for King/Fox swaps even the Raptor owners have to redial their upper shock tower? I am using a factory frame with the some of the same reinforcements you can buy for a Raptor.

I think you would be better off buying a kit from RPG or Rogue, the cast lower and knuckles on a Raptor are the weak links, you could buy fully fabricated parts and be way ahead of the game. I can not think of anything that was not bolt in, or a simple modification like the brake lines if you get the right parts.

I don't recall but I did get my axles from Rogue, they should be able to tell you. I think mine were Gen1 as the Gen2 were not out yet.

No, Rogue. I was told that is probably the weakest link of the front suspension.

I have a '15 with gen 1 raptor components from ADD. For the rear I am running a Currie F9 that is 7" wider than stock and triple bypasses. Front coil overs are Fox 3.0's for the gen 1.
