I'm feeling lazy... Stole a couple pics off Colin Gormans FB post (another Tremor owner in SNORR and here).

Thats one hell of a Recovery. Great Job ..!! I'll guarantee if I still lived in Vegas, and .. if were still alive, I'd be apart of your group. Vegas and I weren't good for each other. It was the 80's, I was in my late 20's, better looking than most, good shape and I enjoyed drinking .. and Girls .. oh, the Parties, and the Girls ..

On a different subject... Bush and tree stump removal. Alternate winch uses😁

7 bushes and 1 tree stump removed from my buddies yard. He's a Diesel Tremor owner.

This one took a couple different setups, plus some watering and digging to get to finally break loose.

We didn't have any faith in this one but tried it anyways. We failed. Got it to move some but the trees we were anchoring from were not happy. We had 3 snatch blocks setup for the last try. One to redirect the winch line to the tree then 2 more zigzagged between trees to give us more power. Those 2 gave us a 3:1 mechanical advantage or basically 36,000 pounds of power. Everything was rigged/being used near or beyond max breaking strengths. Nothing failed nor looks like needs to be tossed.

No pictures of the setup.

This last attempt had both Tremors sliding on cement. I was in mine on the brakes and my buddies wife was in his anchoring me on the brakes.

Added some more lighting. This time rock lights. After being out with a couple people with them I can see the added benefit when off-roading at night for spotters to be able to see what's happening below. Plus I wired them up hot so when taking a break and the truck is shut down it is lit up with them nicely with little power draw. 90 bucks for a set of 12 off Amazon and another 50 for the switch I used. Same overseas pods that I used in my bed but amber. I ended up mounting 11 so far. The rear I think I need one for each corner since a center either forward or rearward of the spare would get blocked too much by the spare. TBD. Anyways one in each wheel well. 3 down each side between the wheels and one under winch area. LOVE them. Kind of a time consuming project and lots of laying on your back under the truck time to install but in the end happy.

Back to that $50 buck switch... I'm out of upfitters. Pondered and pondered and looked all around the dash and just wasn't seeing the time it would take to put a switch in the dash. A whole lot of tearing stuff apart to get to where I would want a switch. So did some digging and came across a product line called Trigger and their Trigger One wireless relay. All runs off an App. I figured what the heck. Works like a charm. Plus I am able to strobe them and dim via the App. TBD on longevity. If it was something critical or I need right now I'd stick to the upfitters to skip the wireless technology but for what I am using it for perfect. If it failed no biggie.

They're not as bright as this pic makes them out from last night. A friend took it with some night mode and everything got enhanced. Like it though :) New FB profile pic!

I was totally surprised to get a text yesterday afternoon that my Tremor was here! I couldn't type I'm ready now fast enough. lol. He said in a few hours since they needed to inspect and detail. I cleaned out the 2013 F150 FX4, hit the car wash for a nice appearance for trade in purposes and was off to the dealer.

+/- 7 weeks. Works for me! Wasn't supposed to be here until the 17th. Ordered Jan 17 with a truck order processed date of 20 Jan.

Sport, Ultimate, 7.3L, dual batteries/alternators, bed cover, etc, etc. Most of the goodies. Did my first upgrade with the cup holders last night. They just happened to show up yesterday. Time to go mess with it. Didn't get home until well into the darkness hours last night so only have a couple miles on it.

Got a small pile of stuff in the garage for it. Built right bed storage, etc all ready to be installed.

Where can I get those cup holders
