After a very long wait my new favorite truck is here. It was worth the wait. I purchased a 20 F350 in January. 9890 miles later it been a great truck and one I was a little nervous to see go, but that quickly went away once I got to see my new truck.
Although I’m still a tiny bit nervous till I tow my 5th wheel.

Congrats. The tires take a bit to break in. You might take some height measurements as the Tremor's bed height can cause issues with 5ers and goosenecks being nose high and putting disproportionate weight on the rear trailer axle.

Yes I have thought and researched this a bunch and at one point almost canceled the temor. My FX4 truck was an absolute monster and handled my 5er perfectly. (All within weight ratings) Weighed numerous times at the CAT scales. I’m going to have to adjust my hitch height down I believe which will give me less bed side clearance.

I had dealer swap duratracs for BFG’s before I picked it up.

I pull my 5 th all the time its 14,300 no problems got a slider, the truck does squat a bit but driving it is fine.
My other trucks and Jeep we use the BFGs and I love them. I am stuck with the Duracraps but so far so good, I plan to burn them off and get new wheels and tires in the Spring of 21. Probably will get BFGs 35 x 12.50s on wider wheels.

Congrats on the new Tremor! That color combo looks great and a winch! Very impressive! What size BFGs did you go with?

Have you done tembrens or anything to alleviate the squat? My dealer who I have a great relationship with swapped the BFGs for essentially free. They are 305/65r18. I’m a Bfg guy have been since my first truck.

Any reason you went down in diameter? I'm asking because I've been looking at switching to 305/70-18 BFGs when I get mine...and according to the BFG site that size is available.
Truck looks great by the way. ?

Cool...thanks for the feedback!
I’m running 58psi front and 71 rear psi cold. The combo of switching to the 18” wheel and a little softer suspension this tremor rides so much better than my other F350. The FX4 wasn’t terrible but it was very stiff, which made it very stable but geez square edge bumps about killed you.

I assume you're running the higher rear pressure because of the 5th wheel towing? Are you dropping the pressure when running empty? We would air up or down on ours (we had several F350s for work) as the situation dictated.
Again, thanks for the feedback. The OEM tires are one thing that's been concerning me and you're the first I've seen who runs the exact tire & size that I had planned.
