BlueCruise is working well. Driven about 100 miles total with BlueCruise after the leveling kit was installed and not a single issue. Honestly, it seems to work better!

I don't think anyone has tested BlueCruise with a leveling kit installed which is why it was unknown or not compatible. ReadyLIFT said the 2" kit was not tested/compatible with the Lightning, but it was a direct bolt on. So far, the kit has no issues and BlueCruise works well.

Is it level with the 2" spacers? It looks like it needs another .5"....

How would you say the tire noise is compared to stock?

Looks way better either way than that squatted truck look from the factory.

It's 2" spacer kit. The road noise isn't noticeable in my opinion.

The reason is because the car was calibrated given a certain height/angle. If the radars are not within factory specs it might miscalculate or just miss things on the road. Is this enough to really make a difference? Who knows.

Awesome work!
I just ordered the Readylift kit. Are those the stock wheels? Looks great!

I doubt it makes a difference, reason being with a full load in the bed, the truck would be “level” and presumably Ford would have tested Blue Cruise under these conditions.

This is exactly what I wanted to do, but was afraid of it affecting my bluecruise. Looks awesome, please keep us updated with any changes you might notice.

@romeoz Did you consider any other tires? KO's are my go to also (love them!) but I was worried about the weight difference relatively to the stock options, impact on range, etc.

Curious though, if the tires will subtract, or improve your hauling capacity? I’m going to add an 1100 lbs camper to mine and don’t want to mess with the tires if it’s not going to help it keep the sticker weight.

I did not as I have always ran with KO2s, had them on my Jeep and I love the way they look on my Raptor so I just went with what I know and like
