Default 2016 F-150 lift/wheels/tires help

I have a 2016 F-150 2WD and I am looking into getting a lift, bigger wheels, and bigger tires. (Yes I'm being that guy who lifts a 2wd truck, oh well). The lift recommended by a local shop is a 7inch MaxxTrac 7 inch lift. Does anyone have experience or reviews with this brand? The wheels I plan on getting are 22x12 hostile sprockets with a -44 offset. And I'm most likely getting 35 inch toyo open country AT2's. Will this lift clear the wheels and tires with the offset? Any help/input will be greatly appreciated

Hopefully you are good with a sawzall. Probably going to need it. Search the 2015 section.

What is the Backspacking on those 22x12 Hostile wheels?

We have 4" Lift spindle and UCA combo that is very popular...https://www.f150forum.com/f37/baja-k...253084/index6/

The back spacing for this wheel is a 4.75. Your site says this kit that you recommended will work. The only thing is that I'm looking to lift the back slightly also. I'm not big into the "cali lean" that your lift seems to produce. Although I believe it's a super good price and it seems to be great quality.

How do you plan on using the truck?

You can add blocks for the inexpensive option or add a leaf pack.

being that it's 2WD, very minimal off roading. The 7" Max Trax (or however it's spelled) kit recommended by a local shop would only be $1625 with instillation and tax. I'm not very familiar with the brand. And I know lifts are not something you want to take the cheapest rout on.

The kit provides a lift spindle and then they put a 2.5" spacer to give you the added lift to 7".

Search maxtrac on the 2015+ Forum. there are a few of us running the maxtrac kit.

My only suggestion is to make sure you order the kit with the Bilstein shocks.
