Any dealers offering the sport pack upgrade post-purchase?

I have a non-sport pack, but might want to upgrade. As it is just wheels + tires + brakes, i'm sure it can be installed separately, but would rather not have to deal with the old wheels+tires+brakes and sell them myself. Anyone know of any dealers doing this and how much it might cost?

The wheel set with tires alone is almost $4K from a dealer.
I’m selling mine next week for $2K plus shipping or free pick up in Houston.

Definitely wait on the aftermarket. For one reason...as soon as a real big brake kit is released my Street Pack brakes will be for sale for cheap. lol

If you come across something, let me know. This is the #1 item on my want list at the moment. Why Ford decided to draw attention to a two-piston caliper with red paint, I'm not sure. It couldn't have been too difficult to put 6-piston Brembos on the front--the Focus RS has freaking Brembos for crying out loud, so we know Ford has the supply line. I have had zero complaints with these brakes, if they can stop a Raptor, they can stop my explorer, but its a look thing for sure that bugs me.

The sport back brakes are the same as those on the Raptor? I wonder if any other aftermarket brakes are compatible with this platform.

That seems to be the current prevailing wisdom. I don't have access to internal part #s or anything and I'm sure there are mounting differences, but yes, the Raptor and F-150 Sport also come with two-piston brakes of similar size and design.

Raptor uses the same brakes as all other current F150’s. I just spent years messing with those. I wound up with Wilwoods on mine.
A few F150 guys have also mounted the Mustang Brembo front calipers.
What will be hard is the rear...no aftermarket companies are doing a rear caliper for the e-parking brake. Wilwood has a separate parking brake caliper but it needs a custom mount. Little Shop Mfg did those on an F150 and used the front rotors and big caliper on all 4 corners.

Are the street pack/hipo calipers the same as non street pack? The only upgrades are the rotors and pads?

Rotors are larger f/r and the front calipers are larger. I need to cross the PN’s but the front calipers look to be from an F150.
