    I have the ReadyLift with OEM Raptor takeoffs (31570R17 BFG Load Range C) on my 2020 FX4. They are beadlock ready but I’m not running them with the beadlocks engaged. Had to tuck the front wheel well material up a little bit, but very easy. No rubbing whatsoever!

    Excellent.
    I’m finally giving my Platinum a mild off-road makeover.
    Already have some parts in the garage. Rear Helwig sway bar (still waiting on delivery of the front sway bar). Moog end links. ReadyLift 3/2.

    Ordering skid plates this week. And onboard air.

    I originally was going with 18” wheels, but a local guy is selling his 17” Raptor wheels that were new take-offs. I would get the same exact size tire that you are running: 315/70R/17. That is a 34.4” tire, so good to know you aren’t having any major interference issues.

    Your BFG’s are load range C. How do they ride? I was looking at the BFG KO2 which are load range D, but I don’t want a real harsh ride. Part of the benefit of getting rid of my ridiculous 22” rims, is to get more sidewall for a better ride.

    No rubbing on the road prior to the ReadyLift. Haven't taken it off-road yet and haven't tried to stuff the wheels. Didn't have to trim anything; I also added mud flaps. They aren't the bead locks; the guy that I bought them from got rid of these for bead locks.

    Which onboard air setup are you going with?

    Skid plates are probably next.

    I also did front and rear sway bars along with the Moog end links when the ReadyLift was installed.
