The Ford Maverick has been quite the popular pickup to modify among its owners thus far, even though the fairly new model doesn’t have what one might call a robust aftermarket at the moment. One thing missing from most parts catalogs, currently, is an abundance of lowering kits for the Ford Maverick, though Tucci Hot Rods built their own custom, lowered version of the pickup for last year’s SEMA Show, while others have followed suit in the months since. Now, the folks at Iceboxx Customs are making that job quite a bit easier thanks to its brand new Ford Maverick air strut suspension, which was recently discovered by The Drive.
Currently, this particular kit will only fit front-wheel drive Maverick models, and it comes with a pair of Iceboxx’s custom front air struts and rear shocks, as well as two UAS airbags and all the required connections and hardware one needs for installation. However, an air management system is still required for the airbag setup, which is sold separately. Regardless, the kit offers a significant 5-7 inches of total drop compared to the stock pickup’s ride height.
The beauty of this particular kit is that it’s a straight bolt-on job, with no cutting required. This isn’t the case with many airbag setups, which often require quite a bit of custom work to fit and function properly. This kit is reportedly completely reversible if the owner wants to go back to a stock setup or sell their rig, and it apparently rides and handles in a very OEM manner, albeit quite a bit lower than stock.
Iceboxx is currently working on developing a similar kit for all-wheel drive Mavericks, which features a completely different rear suspension setup and will obviously require different components to make work. Regardless, those that want the slammed look for their front-wheel drive model can pick up this new kit now for $3,000.
