5. All entries will be posted in a voting thread and the entire F150Tremor.com community will have a chance to decide the winner.
 
Last day to get your photo in!
 
Any chance you can post a few more pics that show the fender flares and let us know what model is it?
Hi Traymore, my appologies for the slow reply, for some reason I didn't get any notification of your post. Please see a few more from that same photoshoot. The fenderflares are Rough Country Sports, I'm very happy with them, the right thickness, clean lines, not terribly expensive, assembled easily... really don't know how they could be much better in my opinion.

The truck is a 2023 Tremor 402A with a Whipple stage 1 Coyote, ADD stealth fighter bumpers, Warn Zeon winch, Baja Designs lights, Method 703s (0mm) & Toyo Open Country 315/70R17.

Appreciate your detailed response. It looks great. You got my vote.
Also if you don't mind me asking what suspension did you get?
 
You bet, happy to help... it's been a great community, quite honestly signficantly better than the Raptor community, ha. I do miss the suspension and travel on my '18 Raptor dearly, but this rig is more practical day-to-day, much faster and substantially less expensive even after all the mods.

On the suspension front I origionally went with the Icon stage 2 setup, but unfortunately after many hours of investigation concluded that due to either incorrect parts, or error in the design it's simply not compatible. The geometry of the coilovers, at least the ones I had, used more 100% of the available travel and failed both of my front axels in the first ~10m of rolling in 4wd due to the exetended length going beyond the limit of the CV axel angles. My assumption was incorrect assembly, but I installed the new axles myself exceedingly carefully and with strong diagnostic focus. Without any doubt in my mind, it was a geometry issue as the coilover should limit the travel, and it simply does not, by more than 43mm. I too am a manufacturer so I have quite alot more patience and empathy for situations like this that most, but despite my detailed and well evideced report of the issue, Icon insisted that it was assembly error. To their credit, they paid for my axles and refunded (mostly) the kit, I just hope they make adjustments moving forward to ensure they don't take a hit to an otherwise great reputation. Maybe the '23 tremor axles have a lower angle limit than the '22, I don't know. But even if it didn't fail the axles, the reduced the front track width by more than 90mm, which is a threat itself to high speed handling and one needs some droop left if they're interested in the ride not feeling like a chuckwagon.

So after all that, I returned to stock, pulled the rear blocks entirely, added RAS in the back and a 40mm coilover spacer in the front. This produced ~12mm positive rake and made the wheel fitments much cleaner in my opinion. It also lowers the center of mass of the truck at least 50mm, which I'm a big fan of for the higher speed handling characteristics. It did require about 40-50mm of trimming on the aft section of the front wheel wells to fit the 315/70R17s mostly due to the increased scrub radius from the additional 34mm / side of track width increase from the 0mm offsets.

Damn. I have never trusted Icon. Lots of issue on their Bronco product as well. Overall the lowest satisfaction rate of any shock I have seen.

This is a good guy to have on our team, thanks for all the info plus he drives in the snow.
