Late to posting it up on here even though I have been a member and replying on the forum. Bought it back in November 2023. Far from built right from the factory but it’s 98% fixed now. Love this truck. I have had 3 RAM’s and 13 GM’s. Decided to give Ford a try and so far I like it better than any other truck I have owned. It has everything (as far as I know) except a sunroof (which I didn’t want) and a heated steering wheel ($74k and no heated sunroof, wtf). I live in SoCal so the heated steering wheel isn’t really needed.
So far I installed Husky rear fender liners, short antenna (dealer gave it to me), spray in bedliner (dealer installed), SunTek Evolve Nano Ceramic window tint all windows, Diode Dynamic 5w LED license plate bulbs, removed the Tremor box decals, removed the Tremor badge from the tailgate and put it on the rear license plate frame, WeatherTech floor mats front and rear. Next I’ll be getting full forged Lifted and Driven 18x8.5 wheels built with a +20 offset, 295/70r18 tires and new shocks (Fox, Bilstein or Eibach) to level it a bit and improve the ride. I’ll be raising the front 1.5-2” max. I also want to add 2 or 3 yellow driving lights to the front (probably in the bumper opening).
Thank you to everyone’s input on the forum to help me make decisions on the right product the first time. Lots of great info on here.

17 trucks? Wow. I thought I went through vehicles. Glad you like it and welcome to the Ford family.

I use to work at car dealers and vehicles became a habit. Thank you, I’m loving the Tremor. Cant wait to make the suspension and wheel changes to make it more unique and mine. I never leave my vehicles completely stock.
 
Check out Halo-lift's 2 Tremor specific packages. The 2.0" and 2.5" body (same lift, different sized shocks). The owner of the company is a member here and drives a Tremor. Shocks are made by Elka (Canada), nice stuff.

I appreciate the recommendation. I have seen the good reviews and questionable quality concerns (noise and joint issues) with them. I like what the company is about and it’s definitely not off the table but as I won’t be rock crawling or doing high speed Baja driving it may not be with the price of admission for me. Looking more for 1.5-2” lift in front and slightly firmer suspension. Stock is way too soft and truck floats around especially if the road is rough. Thank you again for the recommendation, we will see what I land on.
 
Mine's been great. Only 3000 miles so far, but no noise from them. It's is slightly firmer than stock. I went with the 2.0" kit which is half the cost of the 2.5. Also worth getting the SPC control arms, no matter what brand coilover you get.

I had Icon coilovers in my 4runner. They rode great, but when I sold it, the new owner found one of the coil springs was broken. Broken!

Not a Fox fan- had 2 set of shocks in my Wrangler and don't like the ride. I'm on King's for that one, but it does a LOT of off-road.

I don't off-road the Tremor and I think the smaller coilovers do great.

looks good and for the price it’s hard to pass on that option. I do more trail / fire road type driving but 90+% road driving. Heart wants overkill, head says keep it simple and affordable.😂
