Bought a used WK2 a few weeks back to replace an aging F150 as my daily driver + adventure mobile. 2015 Limited that came bone stock but have since done wheels/tires, mirror caps & tow hooks as well as having a 2.5” RC lift installed next week. Looking forward to where I can take it from there.. probably going to focus on removing some more of the limited chrome.
Wheels are Black Rhino Arches and tires are 265x65x18 Ridge Grapplers. I’m very happy with how they turned out!
The two pictures below are the way it showed up on day 1 stock vs. what it looks like as of last night. I’m still trying to decide if I’d rather just install the 2” RC leveling spacer vs. the 2.5” kit f/r. Measured it currently sits just a hair under 2” lower in the front than the back.

Looks nice. I‘m also about to mod my 2016 limited. Was thinking of getting either the Toyos or the Falken Wildpeaks. How’s the noise level on the highway with the Ridge Grapplers?

Nice WK2! I'd go with the 2" leveling kit. You won't be able to fit a larger tire with the 2.5" kit.

They’re actually surprisingly quiet. The first drive or two down the highway I could hear the difference from the Bridgestone Dueler’s that were on it but now it’s hardly noticeable. By comparison I had duratrac’s on my previous vehicle and compared to these the duratracs seemed crazy loud

Yeah I’m definitely torn. Not wanting to go any bigger on tires as I don’t want to do any trimming or pinch weld stuff so 32’s are max whether I lift or not. I was really just wanting to get some wheel well-to-tire clearance back after going from the 30.5’s to these 31.5’s. Appointment is on Monday so I guess I’ll ponder it though the weekend and then decide
