Just curious, but do the tires stick out past the fender? Love the look! I'm gathering as much info I can
For my build.
They are very close to sticking out less than 1/4”

did you realign after the front lift? if so did you have any alignment issues with lane departure/adaptive cruise sonar in front clip? i'm looking at having it done [xlt sport like yours] ..same color actually! and the tech is saying the front sonar may skew based on the increased height, if so he's telling me I'd have to take to dealer for align...
You probably have this all figured out by now....and I apologize for the late reply.......but I didnt have any alignment issue or problems with lane depart or cruise sonar etc. I did have to take it to the Ford Dealer though, as the local alignment-tire shop didn’t have a 2019 Ranger in “their computer” for alignment specs. The dealer didn’t either , but he just set it up per 2011 Ranger specs. This was several months ago, I’ve had 7000 trouble free miles since.

I don't have my before pic. Installed the Icon kit with billet arms, Fabtech crash bars, Icon rebounds in titanium, with Nitto 275-75-17. Truck also has some Ford accessories, complements of Ford, Yakima rack, bed mat, swing box, 12v outlet, Ford sill guards, all weather mats. Magnaflow donated exhaust, and auto-start eliminator. Still need to throw on the Maxtrax and rotopax that are on the garage floor.

Do you mean 285/70/17 tires? Also, did you leave the Icons at their out of the box setting which I believe is 2 inches? Or did you go higher? I have the Icon's installed (out of box setting) with factory UCAs. Thinking about bumping them up another 1/2" to around 2.5" and keep factory UCAs. What did you set yours to? That stance on your rig is killer.

Just had mine done a couple of days ago. Icon with tubular UCA's. Got tired of waiting for Icon wheels so went with Fuel Grey Shok 17x9 +1mm offset. I'll have to do a little more trimming on my crash bars and remove those plastic blocks at the rear of the wheel well.

Looks awesome. Are your Icons at the out of the box height setting?

Here's some before & after pics .....leveling kit and new wheels/tires....

Used a Suspension Specialists 2.5" Leveling kit, which worked out to slightly over 2" actually (ok with it) and RRW RR2-S wheels - 17X8.5 with 0 offset & Mickey Thompson Deegan 38 All Terrains in 275/65/17.
There were some great deals on these tires, with an $80 rebate if you purchased a set of 4, not sure if it's still going on.

I'll need fender flares now, as the 0 offset wheels stick out a bit more than I like, sure wish they would've had them in 20mm offset, which I think would be about right.

Also installed the Raptor grill earlier.
interested in selling the stock rims/tires? IM me...

After almost a year of ownership, I finally pulled the trigger on lift, tires, and wheels.

I went with the Icon Stage 2 Coilovers with rear shocks, the ranger-specific ICON ALLOYS SIX-SPEED, 17", Satin Black, and BF Goodrich All-Terrian TA/KO2 285/70/R17
I had the stock intrusion bars replaced with the BDS instruction bar kit.

Pretty much like ICON built their own ranger, except I couldn't afford the Stage 5.

It rides like a dream now! No more floaty soft feeling, bobbing, and my stopping is even smoother. Feels like a solid truck now, like it should!

Had the SVC leveling collars installed today and got exactly 2" of lift as advertised.

FYI: Front measurement from ground to wheel well is now 37 5/8" and rear is 38 5/8". Running board front measurement to ground is 16" and rear is 16 1/4". Which means anything more than a 2 1/2" front lift puts your running boards running downhill towards the rear of the truck; meaning not level. Having equal front and rear wheel well measurements is not level, it means front sits higher.
