I was going to trash the transmission in my ½ ton Ram Rebel pulling my toy hauler around so I started looking at the ¾ ton Ram/Dodge, but then somebody put a bug in my ear about the Tremor. I found this forum and I was convinced I needed one of these trucks. Camping season is here in AZ so I didn't do a custom order, I picked one of the trucks that was going to be delivered to the Phoenix area that checked almost all of the boxes. I was going to trade in my wife's blue Kia Stinger so I thought it was only right to get a Velocity Blue Tremor to replace here car with. ;)
I am bummed I did not get LED lights, the blackout package, and the step on the tailgate, but all in all the XLT still rocks for the price. I can always add and update as I go. Here are a few pics of my new ride.

You think this forum has cost you $$$$$. By the time I get my Tremor and caravan, I will have paid out over $360,000. Plus a shed to put them both in.

Congrats and don’t worry about the minor things you’re missing out on. I came from a fully loaded 802a Raptor and honestly I wanted to go more simple but I wanted a few things like you mentioned. So I did them on my own. You can buy the blacked our side F250 emblems online. I bought a lariat blacked out grill from Ford and I changed all of the bulbs to LED. The only issue you will have is the tailgate step. It can not be added later. It’s a completely different tailgate. So you have to buy the correct tailgate and have it painted to match. The best option I could find is the Amp research tailgate step. It’s not the best but the best option I’ve found.

Yes its going to cost you but you will be wise and only purchase things once and when you do you will have the best accessories and products for your Tremor.
Great to see another Velocity Blue beast!

Yep, bad ass ain't cheap and cheap ain't bad ass.

Thanks for all the welcome's.

The truck goes in for bed liner and Tonneau cover next week. I chose the dealerships bed liner, it is their own mix, they said it is similar to Rhino lining. I wanted to go with Line-X, but the stealership gave me a great price and a lifetime warranty on the liner.

I need some mud flaps, should I pick up the Ford ones at the dealer next week or go with WeatherTech MudFlaps?

I checked around and there are no nice aftermarket grills that I could find. I found a couple of places to paint the but it was Only a few hundred than a new one. So I ordered it from Ford for $850..... I didnt want junk on the truck and I knew this would hold up.

I'm a fan of the WeatherTech Mudflaps. Got them installed last week:

https://www.fordtremor.com/threads/modifieds-2020-f250-tremor-build.1073/post-20819 (y)
Ordered the WeatherTech flaps. (y)While perusing your thread I found the NEO-GARAGE link, I see some off-road lights in my future as well as some stickers. I told you this forum was going to cost me.:p Oh well, I am used to it. You do not want to know how much money I put into my Kawasaki Concours after I bought it and found the Concours Owners Group forum.

$850 painted black? Did you get the color matched bumper parts too?
