Do you have the fronts set at 3"?
Is the back lifted with blocks?

First of all, everything I end up stating below is all of your collective faults. Without this forum, the investments / improvements to my Ranger probably wouldn't have happened .... or at least to this extent. Secondly, nearly everything I've done to my Ranger came from ideas generated from all of you. This is, hands down, the best vehicle I've owned. Ultimately, I'm kind of dull and like an understated, clean look to my vehicles .... nothing too flashy. My clothes are very similar to my truck: lots of gray and black. Any questions/comments, just ask!!

In no particular order:

Tinted front window to match factory rear

What % tint did you find to match the fronts to the rears?

Front at 3” rear is stock.
I'm probably going to drive you nuts...
Stock springs or the Eibach springs? Upper control arms?

How is it off road? Have you had it on anything that flexed the suspension any? I'm really leaning towards the Eibach stuff because of the cost. Better than spacer in capability but not as good or expensive as coil overs if I were to hazard a guess.

Eibach springs and factory control arms for now.
I haven’t done enough to give a great off road review, mostly just cruising some forest service roads. It’s firmer than factory which greatly improves the handling and body roll while it seems to soak up bumps that would leave the factory setup bouncing around. I’m happy with it so far and would say it’s a great bang for the buck kit.

Thanks! They're the 265/70/17 Falken Wildpeak AT3W on the stock wheels without spacers.
Hey, Eric, now that you have put some miles on the Falkens, can you tell us what you think of them? I am still running the stock Hankook ATMs but am looking to upgrade at the first sign of wear....

Finally posting some pics.
I have weather tech mats, vent visors and mud flaps. GFB dv + vta, air raid drop in air filter, stock bedliner , American tri-fold tonneau cover(off my Colorado), painted the ford emblem on tailgate but going to do overlay, subdued American flag tailgate letters.
still to install bed lights, aftermarket sound system and remove the ecoboost emblem and replace with subdued ecobeast 4x4.

I saw this on the lot back in October and finally pulled the trigger on a great deal 2 weeks ago. Lariat trim with Sports appearance and 18” magnetic wheels. I’ve added the step bars, mud flaps and BAKFlip MX4 cover. Absolutely love the Ranger!

So far I only have about 1k miles on them of mostly daily driving. I did go up into the woods this past weekend and did some mild off-road however I didn't air down at all and that wasn't the best idea. Lol. They performed well though. They're slightly louder than the stock Bridgestone A/Ts (as to be expected) but not so much louder that it's annoying. I'm happy with them at this point. We'll see how they do once I get onto some gnarlier trails later in the summer. I have noticed about a 1.5 mpg average drop in mileage too.

Eric, thanks for sharing your experiences. I am definitely leaning toward the Falkens, just as soon as the stock Hankook ATMs start to show some wear. I would expect the Falkens to be noisier than stock, and with more rolling resistance and so worse mileage, but, as you say, nothing really significant. Thanks again!
