Question Selling factory Raptor parts?

Hey y'all - I'm new to the forum and just ordered an '18 Raptor. I'm going to put a lift, some new wheels/tires, bumpers, and exhaust on it immediately. Any suggestions on best way/place to sell parts that came with? I'm not looking to store - garage to small. Thanks in advance.

The FRF forum is a good place to start. Why would you add a lift to a Raptor? If you don't plan to use the Raptor suspension why pay the premium for a Raptor?

Silver-Bolt - Thanks for the reply. I want to add a minor lift but preserve factory suspension, so I can get some bigger wheels/tires on there (35-37'). Was looking at 2017 Raptor Fabtech 4" Suspension Lift Kit. I'd look to sell the 17" beadlock wheels and tires, plus the stock F/R bumpers.

Stay far away from any lift kit for the Raptor You will completely ruin the suspension geometry. All you need is a coilover collar up front in order to run 37's and retain the factory geometry and travel. Watch the offset on your wheel choice. Stock is +34. Most running 37's are running +0 at the max. Anything in the minus range will give you issues.

Silver-bolt - Super helpful, I'll take your advice on the lift. Is something like this what you mean? https://www.readylift.com/2-5-leveli...2017-2018.html
Regarding wheels, the lower the offset the, the wider the stance on the truck will be, right? That's the look I'm going for but I don't want to compromise the suspension geometry, performance etc. Thinking 20-22's with close to 0 offset, but not negative, and 35-37" tires will do the trick. Thanks again!

There are several brands out there. Not familiar with the Ready-Lift. Here is one that several on FRF are running. https://www.rpgoffroad.com/product/2...-perch-collar/

Do your homework carefully when it comes to suspension changes. Running 37's at the mall is much different than running them in the dirt. I recommend you spend some time on FRF and research exactly what is working and what is not. Wheels play a huge role is how high you need to go.
