That would all be custom work. There is no kit nor will there ever be a kit. It will be a lot of work but anything can be done with the right amount of $$$ and the right skills and tools. Good luck.

Thats awesome! The lights are a little out of proportion but they did a great job on that kit.

But you would need a long travel kit in order to make it look good. With a stock suspension its gonna look like garbage because it will be so far in.

fiberwerks makes interesting looking kits and always seems to have the first set up for a newly released truck, but the quality and fitment isnt there compared to glassworks

Pretty sure the suspension is the same as the slightly older models.

In my opinion, that Raptor Ranger kit looks FUGLY! The coolest part is the grill. It needs a bumper and the fins are wayyyy too big. They take up most of the hood! It needs to be more proportional for sure
