Ok, I'm stuck - I'm ordering a Tremor - no question.

I've spec'd out with my local(ish) dealer two variants of the 22MY Tremor

Option 1:

F350 KR with 7.3L with all options (almost)
- Not a fan of the power boards - Minnesota - Salt - Snow - Ice Buildup - etc
- LOVE - again - LOVE the KR Java Interior!
- Love the 2-tone paint with Rapid Red (Would have loved the Race Red though)


F350 Lariat Sport with 7.3l with all options (almost)
- RACE RED SPORT! Love the brightness of it
- Hate that I cannot get Black Lariat package but I know a guy that can powder coat all my chrome (i.e., F350 fender logos)
- Black Onyx leather interior is second to the KR Java Interior
- I get the black textured running boards (1st choice over powered boards)


Price difference is (exactly) $2,921.50 between both builds - Lariat being less.

Thoughts?

Price difference is not substantive. Sounds like you greatly prefer the KR. I’m sure someone will swap stock running boards for your powered if you want. Go for the KR.
Never gave that a thought actually... Good point.

Why can’t you get the lariat black package?
 
Your right its not compatible with race red, wound up ordering the sport appearance package instead, will have to change a few things if I ever get the truck
 
Love my KR, i would suggest getting the front mud flaps to protect the pwr running boards, the Tremor running board are so high that don't really function very well as steps, the pwr work much better as they deploy down further. Additionally the skylight is much nicer than I had anticipated, really nice in the truck with the skylight all the way back. Plus with the KR you get the color matched front and rear bumpers ;)
 
To the OP, I wiould be willing to trade you my stock Tremor running boards for your power running boards since I can't get the power running boards on my build with the front 40/20/40 seats. I'm in AZ, but I'd be willing to pay the difference....just saying. Get the KR if that's what you really like and the running board situation will work out in the end with another forum member.
 
The main differences to me are the KR has the silver band across the tail gate and the orange leather. Personally, I don't like either of those, so went Lariat.
The silver band on tailgate is only on the CHROME variant of the KR (I believe) and you're right. I don't like that look either.

I DO prefer the interior color over black.

Still tossing around. Great ideas being tossed around.

Go king ranch you can’t beat their interior and the power steps you can lock those up or down they don’t have to be AUTO

I ordered the new baja interior. Also not a fan of all black :).

Thanx! I didn’t realize that.

If the KR seats are as comfortable as the platinum seats I'd consider leaning that way. Platinums are like floating on 7500lb pillow, never drove a KR but have a few miles behind a platty. Vote: KR
Any first hand knowledge of this by anyone?
