I'm putting 296/65/20 Ridge Grapplers on my 2016 next week (with OEM 20s). Will post a few pics when they are mounted. Here she is with the leveling springs installed yesterday and the OEM michelins.


Any pictures of the Ridge Grapplers yet?

So guys maybe you can help me with this. I'm picking up a 2017 F2 50 platinum. As you probably know they come with the 275 65 R20's. With what I tow I could easily do it with a F 150. I just happened to drive a friend of mine's new F 250 power stroke, and fell in love with the power and overall feel of the truck. The road to my farm is light gravel, and I really don't even need a four wheel drive or mud tires. The majority of my driving is city and highway. My question is, Mitchlen makes a LTX MS ll in 275/65 r20, 285 and 295 . They come with the mitchlen AT all-terrain tire that comes on the FX 4. I believe I would get a smoother ride with the LTX MS ll, it's a phenomenal ride as well as a light mind or should I say very light mud and snow . It is always been consumer reports highest rated tire for quietness wet traction and overall smoothness . I'm just wondering how you all would think about this mod? Also if you know it has ever been done and or seen it . I'm not looking for a jacked up truck. That's just not me, dut I would like it to look somewhat sharp. I Think that the stock tires are just a little too small for that wheel well, as well as the MS being a better highway tire in general. I chose to list this question in this particular thread because some of the comments were staying with the regular 20 inch rims and just going up a size or two on the tire, and not necessarily turning it into a monster truck. No offense
Anyway I hope y'all can give me with some input on this. Thanks
Ps I believe this year the truck sits about an inch or inch and a half higher

How do you like that Icon kit? Looking at the same right now, not sure which route I'm going.

Also, you mind taking a pic of the whole truck?
Will get a pic of the entire truck tomorrow and post it.

In terms of the suspension, I actually have a combination of parts on the truck. I have the Icon 2.5" CDCV shocks, a Carli track bar, Carli high mount stabilizer, Carli Radius Arms, and Tuf Trucks 7,500 lb 2.5" leveling coils. I think it rides and handles great, but I also wasn't looking for that 'magic carpet ride' softness that many folks are after. I have a Lance camper that tops out at a little over 4,000 lbs, and which I take off-road in the mountains, so I was after stiffer front coils combined with shocks where I could crank up the compression dampening when hauling the camper. In the rear I have upper stable loads, and may add a leaf to the lower spring pack to go with the Icon 2.5" CDCVs in the rear. Also have a Hellwig Big Wig sway bar in the rear.
