OK, so my story: I am going to the desert very often in NV and the last time I almost stuck in with my Honda Accord. I thought I would need a truck, if I don't want to be in the desert alone with a car that stuck in.
I was thinking to get something for $30k, that was my original budget. I went down to the dealers and saw a nice GMC truck, with a price tag of $54k. I thought I am not going to buy it but I liked it very much. I waited my husband to come home and went to the dealership to show him the GMC, which was about to leave the lot as a loaner to someone else. (I got angry because for them, I was a potential buyer, huh?)
Drove to the next dealership, a Ford one and they had all the kind of trucks, but I wanted to see a F250. I didn't want a F150 because for the future, a F250 would give more options. (we love RV's and even if currently don't have one, who knows, we may buy another)
They had nothing that matched my idea (color or leather seats) but they had a F250 Tremor on the lot. It had a $77k price tag. It was just not my idea to pay for my new truck. The salesman asked if I want to drive it? I was hesitating, because I will not buy it, so why to waste time for it. But it was so beautiful in and out, so finally went to test drive it.
After just 2 miles, I got the bug bite: I WANT TO HAVE THIS TRUCK. I had no idea what Tremor means (they said 2 inch higher, that's all). So started to send him a vin number of a car that I thought I might want to trade in. The salesman was stupid, not responsive, etc. I sent my insider friend to ask how lower they can go with the price, they said no more, than couple of $100's. In the same time, we started to look on the internet and found a used one in TX with 8k miles on it. And $17k less.... Couple of days later we were in TX and got my F250 Tremor and I cannot be happier.
Now I am learning what a Tremor capable for (I am not going to climb rocks with it, for sure! haha) and cannot wait to get some gentle :) off road experience with it!
Ever day I am going to drive it, I am so proud of it and I love it.
We changed the horn (the original one was quite embarrassing) and I ordered a cap shell (I have dogs) and looking to have extra wheels and tires (mostly used on highways, so why to run off the good off road tires on it).
 
Congrats on the Tremor! ?

A pic of you and your husband next to your rig. I’m getting mine any day now. I’m going to try to look as cool as I can be with that little boy grin I’m sure I will have on my face ???????
 
Congratulations on your purchase. I don’t think you will be disappointed. As my man Donnie aka @Iron Man stated above, there are tons of great people on here and almost everyone is open to try and help answer any questions or solve any problems you may encounter in the future. Welcome to the forum and the Tremor Club and keep on driving that beast!
 
Thank you guys. I will post pics once I get my plates, now it is showing a bright blue dealer plate that I don't really like. Or I will look in my phone for some without that bright blue "beauty" :D
 
It has the 7.3 engine.
So here are the pics.
I bought this stairs for the dog, he can jump in but he is still growing, better for now to have him going up and down that way. I also have the appointment for today to replace the factory amp and subwoofer to get new one, the guy said to leave the speakers and let's see how I will like it.
I saw yesterday the cap shell, which will be installed in the middle of January (they have no time earlier to install it :mad:)
