For those that have test driven a F250/F350 with the Tremor package, please post your thoughts/reviews in this thread. What you like, didn't like, thoughts on the suspension, MPG, power (7.3 + powerstroke), etc

Waiting on ordered Tremor
I drove the F350 and placed an order for a build F350 Lariat. Coming from a Duramax LTZ with BDS 4.5 lift and Fox 2.0 shocks with BFG KO2 the road noise of the GY Duratrax is much louder. However the ride of the Tremor was much better as well as the fit, finish and technology. Looking forward to March.

Truck drives really good, a lot more power than my 2013.
The tires are a little loose and truck floats a little, but most tires I’ve had with such deep lugs do that for the first few miles and then get better.
Mpg is running at 14.6 and actually getting better the more miles I put on it. (Truck calculations).will report back when I have had more time to drive around. My 2013 got 13.2 average with my style driving and my normal roads, so better than it so far.

Has the floating steering feel gotten better after mileage? This is a sticking point for me and I want to like this truck.

I definately did not feel any floating, Truck has 1000 miles on it and has adaptive steering, not sure if that makes a difference. Lowering air pressure to 60 all around as others suggested helped overall ride while unloaded.

Seems like the steering feeling is hit or miss. I’ll be getting out to drive a few this week in an effort to see if the issue is isolated to a few trucks or if it is perception by someone who is used to an IFS vehicle, or the Duratracs.

the first 1000 miles had a very noticable floating feeling, especially at higher speeds (the first freeway trip I thought something was wrong or I made a mistake on the truck purchase) . 1000-3000 miles was better, I only noticed it once in a while. currently at 4,200 miles and barely feel the floating, unless 80mph+ passing others. No tire rotations yet but I can start to see the uneven wear. my psi preferences are 55f 50r unloaded and 55f 65r towing 6-8k (I've towed 10k once and halfway through the trip I aired up to 65 in the rear).

dealer fixed a faulty window switch.
tailgate camera acts up once in a while, but has come back on.... so far.

engine and transmission have been awesome!

0-1000 miles = 10.9 mpg
3500-4000 miles = 13.4 mpg

2020 f250 tremor
I actually test drove mine on the way home. power is more than adequate (7.3 gas). the way it handles bumps is different from the f150 I traded in, but, it is a super duty. zero complaints.
