Doing a full overland build in my braptor. I realize that one of the other trims would be better for this but wanted the bigger engine. Does anyone know of any suspension options to compensate for all the extra weight? Will be running a roof tent, bumpers, spare tire platform/rear drawer kit from AAL, bike rack, etc.

Maybe a Collar Lift (Foutz/RPG) to provide 1-2" (before the added weight) as well as preload the springs for some added stiffness?

Welcome to the forum! 🍻 Raptor suspensions have active live shocks that are chassis computer controlled with the OEM springs. I recommend calling Ford Performance customer service for suggestions/idea's if you plan to exceed the payload rating.

Thanks, I'll give that a shot and see what they say.

Resurrecting this thread to see if you learned anything.

I added an ADD front bumper, Warn 12S, and lots of lights to the front. Added TrailRax Rack with Rotopax, shovel, roof box, and Roam case to the roof/sides. I'm worried once I load up the trunk with a fridge, drawers, etc the springs will be overloaded. Doesn't seem to be any options for changing the springs but keeping the Fox Live Valve shocks. I did RPG collars to the front only to compensate for the sag cause by the bumper and winch.
