I keep seeing threads with problems or issues. I feel there is a "silent majority " of very happy owners that keep enjoying their Tremors.

Here You go! I am thrilled with my purchase and 100% satisfied 6k miles & 6 months trouble free ownership.
 
10,000 here and I LOVE it! It pulles, rides, and drives better than I remember my 06 F250 diesel (piece of crap) or my 01 F250 diesel (loved that one). Coming from a 13 F150, there is no comparison. My wife is jealous of it, she thinks I pay more attention to it than her....?

7400 miles in the first month, killed a car, got stuck in the sand, towed for 5500 miles a total weight of 16k lbs and destroyed the front bumper and now have had it for almost 2 months I am happy... No issues very happy with this live changing truck .... I hate when I am not trying it ... I love my f150 with the 5.0 and borla exhaust but the Tremor just makes you feel like a king on the road ... Rides smooth and is a fucking racing truck with the 6.7 and getting 21 mpg driving that way but you go eco mode driving and you can get 26 mpg .... Like fuck my f150 only gets 18 maybe 19 .... Maybe 20 going to work with a 80 miles round trip a day .... It awesome having fuel for 2 weeks of driving to work can only get 400 miles in the f150 and 700 miles in the Tremor with fucking 35s .... Like fuck my f150 has 33s

Interesting on your F150 economy. I have a 2018 with a 3.5 EcoBoost that I've gotten consistent 20.5-23 mpg on the highway. In fact, I just drove 550 miles to visit family and got 21.7 mpg. I'm also running 33" BFGs, so I'm giving up about a mpg or two relative to stock rubber.
 
I can't read "All is well" without thinking of Kevin Bacon in Animal House and/or Baghdad Bob. :ROFLMAO:

Always nice to have a reminder that negative reviews are usually the exception rather than the rule, though they can be the loudest, resonate the most, and have the most staying power. Positive reviews are usually too few and far between... So thanks for yours. And those that followed.

And, I get the impression that you actually mean it when you say 'all is well'.

As opposed to these guys, who have forever tainted my interpretation of that phrase...

2012 f150 5.0 with 33s ko2 bfg I can get 21 mpg empty and going 50 to 55 on the highway but going to work that is what I normally get it also has 146k miles on the clock original everything minus exhaust borla attack and intake and oil catch can and oil change very 3k miles never had a cel and when I towed this load in the picture I was moving from Kansas to Maryland I avg 13.2 towing 15k lbs in but it hated the mountains I couldn't go over 45 at times ... Just because it could do the job doesn't mean it like doing it ... The tremor loves towing really I got it but to be fair I was on stock 28 inch tires and 18 in wheels and now I have 17s and 33s

Curious, did you all order your trucks or buy them off the lot?
Mine was an order out! Spent a week on the build site, built just about every option then came in and built 3 with the salesman. My end out build seemed to be the best combination of what I want and value. 60 day wait time about killed me.

The 10 speed is a nice addition and if I go 50-55 mph with mine (empty of course) it will pull 25+ mpg with my 33" BFGs.
However, I've had too many hair raising moments towing my 23' enclosed trailer in winter with my F150...that's why I'm stepping up to a Superduty.

I would kill for a 60 day wait time! I’m 40 + right now with another estimated 60 to 90 to go. ?
 
Just flipped 7,000 miles, on the new Wheels and Tires have some deals of the month installed. Dual steering stabilizers next then air compressor / air tank. So far it is great.

The ceramic coat has been the biggest time saver and the Forscan has kept me content, no horns barking and the unending list of changes you can make.

Bought off the lot, but only after looking at all my options. The only thing I really miss is the 4-way tilting headrest (going to break down and order them) and maybe would've added the box lighting.
 
This thing is a fairy mediocre pavement queen.

I’m pretty underwhelmed by it the days it sits in my driveway. Or the days it lugs down the highway while Tesla’s drive themselves around me.

But, fortunately for me, at least a few times a week, I’m towing some silly amount of weight up a 20% grade with a shit eating grin on my face and it makes up for all the rest of it.
