    Leveled with 275/55r20

    Looking to see some pics of leveled F150s, with stock sized 275/55r20s.

    I ultimately, want to get 275/65's but my stock 275/55's have a ton of tread and are basically brand new (Factory 2016 Sport pkg Take offs w/ Michelin LTX MS 2 <2k miles)

    So, in the meantime I would love to see what it would look like if I was to just level it now and get tires later.

    I can't stand the factory rake, but if it would look worse leveled on the factory sized rubber I'll just wait and do it all at once when these are gone (it'll be a while no more than I drive the truck unfortunately) So I'm trying to see if there are any pics out there to help make my mind and ease the anxiety a little.
    Thanks guys!

    I ran my truck like that for a couple years until I could afford my lift install and tires. Here's some pics. Im sure there are more around.

    Coilovers set to 1.75"-2" over stock height. Rear up .75" over stock via RAS.

    Ironhide - That's a good looking truck, I know you're lifted now but what kind of leveling kit did you use? Any noticeable difference in handling or ride? When I leveled my old dodge, the ride went to crap, but it wasn't a strut set up like these trucks it was just a standard Coil spring & spacer. Likewise, the Chevy I traded in on this one, I had the leveling keys and it was a bit rougher than stock, but not terrible (torsion bars just ride like crap period)
    I really love the way this truck rides and handles, so I don't want to throw that off too much.

    MCDavis -love the way yours looks leveled, I see you have coil overs, so not just a run of the mill leveling kit, which is nice because it really lets you dial your height in and save ride quality.
    What setup did you go with, and if you don't mind me asking what did it set you back?

    That pic is from December 2014, and those were Halolifts (formerly F150lifts) BOSS coils. I was sent a test set for a reduced cost. Typical retail is around $800 for the pair. The ride quality firmed up but not in a bad way.

    I ran a 2.5 / .75" lift on my truck with the stock tire size (on 18s) for almost a year.
    I hated it almost every day. I got new tires long before I needed.

    I ran my truck with the OEM 275/55R20 for about a year with a 2.5" Rough County leveling kit. I didn't think they looked that bad on their honestly. When it was time to upgrade I went with the 285/65R20 BFG KO2 and that filled out the wheel well nicely. I wouldn't hesitate to go ahead and level it before getting tires. Looks much better vs. the rake from the factory IMO.

    This is almost exactly what I was wanting to see! I agree, I don't think it looks all that bad. I don't think I'd hate it. I don't want to get rid of the factory take offs, because I actually really like the way they look, especially up against the Red Candy color, and they'd probably look even better once it's finally leveled and has a 34" on it.
    I think I may go ahead and just bite the bullet and level it. I figure it's a toss up of looking a little funny raked, or a little less funny leveled with 275/55 (until I get new meat under it)
    Not sure I could go much more than a 34" when time comes though, because it may not clear the top of my garage door... it seems a little tight now.

    Any recommendations on leveling kits? I want to keep some (minimal) factory rake when I tow, so I'm thinking 1.5". I've looked at the AS kits, and a 1.5" is $89, I've seen the Rancho ready lifts - though maybe too much lift, for about $289 for the full strut, Daystar for about $99 (had it on my Dodge - seemed ok)
    Just so many options out there...

    Here's my current setup. Coilovers set right about 1.5" over stock and the RAS is on a lighter setting than before. I have right about 0.5" of rake left and I like the way it looks...not even close to nose high.
    275/65/20 KO2s...which is 34.1" tall according to their specs.
