Got my Tremor last Wednesday and while I like the truck I have a few things that didn't come in as expected and a few questions on the truck.

1. The only wheel well lners is the felt in the front, I know about the plastic liners for there but is there also a set one for the front? I want to make it as easy as possible to clean the mud out.

2. I opted for the factory spray in liner thinking it would be the best choice. I noticed yesterday that I can see light from below the truck between the bed panels. From the looks of it Ford sprays the liner before the panels are assembled. I'm worried about dust and water getting through so I will probably silicon these areas before installing my decked box. Wish I would have just had a local company do it.

3. I have mulitple spots in the paint where there are small bubbles. One would think they would have a better paint process. Is this common?

4. Almost forgot this one. Does anyone else have a high pitch whistle when recirculate is turned on? At around 50 mine whistles. If I turn off recirc it goes away.

In the end I screwed up and didn't get Adaptive Cruise or heated wipers. Some how this was missed on the order, Not a huge thing but still slightly miffed about it.

I also have the factory spray in bed liner and to be honest, I think my local Line-X shop would have done a better job. It looks ok, just feels a bit thin to me. The prices are also virtually the same. I know this doesn’t answer your concern, just an observation I had.

I can speak to the paint. I took delivery a few days ago and my sales guy noted a paint blemish just above the left rear wheel well and a small paint chip on the top of the right front fender. He asked me to set up a time so they could repaint. You purchased a very expensive vehicle, it should be as close to perfect. Get into the dealership ASAP and see what they will do. As far as I am concerned you received a damaged product

You can get the plastic wheel well liners for the front of your Tremor. There is a thread on this. I also had a lot of dirt in my paint (I'm assuming you mean bubbles = dirt). I just got mine back from the dealer and they managed to wet sand and buff most of them off (Not perfect but way better than it was). They are going to paint my rear bumper and passenger rear fender flare, because they can't fix it. The body shop manager was great to work with. Both look like they painted the pieces over scratches or nicks. I agree with you regarding the factory spray in liner (I would have not gotten it, but is standard with Sport package). It is descent, but my the Linex I had done on my 2015 was way better.

Re: OEM bed liner - Ford maintains factory gaps at floor to bed walls by design for drainage. That’s the same on F-150s or SDs. Some aftermarket spray them over but if your bed is not covered that could trap water leading to corrosion. If you are making your bed mostly water tight silicone will fill them. I‘ve never had water get into any bed as the locations of gaps, angle of joints, etc kind of make it an exit path only.

My truck came with factory rear wheel liners. There plastic and work well. I think it may have been an option.

Since I will be putting a topper on it on going to seal them with Lexel. I will leave a few gaps for drainage.
