What did you do to your Tremor today?

At the range to re-verify a deer rifle after some changes.

My ultimate Lariet didn’t come with an integrated garage door opener. So I made my own remote switch button. Now my remote is not sitting around in my cup holder. I just soldier the button switch to the switch on the remote. I Velcroed the garage remote on the back of the panel below the steering wheel. Works great!

Nice idea! I am going to steal this for my side by side, thanks my friend!
 
I'm floored that the Ultimate didn't include such a basic option. Any ideas why?

Kudos on installing a creative option. 👍🏻

I recall on my 2013 LU that I had to search out the part number and buy the visor with Homelink myself. The connector was already above the headliner, but just blanked off from the factory.
 
Installed the Noco power inlet socket. I don't have an engine block heater, (not necessary in CA) but I do have an onboard charger for long term storage or long periods of non-use. In either case, the install is straight forward. Installing the inlet was easy because I looked up an earlier detailed install by @BroncoHooves in this thread. (Thanks Bronco!)

Here's some notes as to what I ran into:
If you drill dead center of the panel, there is a secondary tab of plastic behind the panel on the front of the truck where the hole ends up. When you drill a hole for the inlet, just keep it going until this tab is rounded out as well. There's plenty of room so the hole drill won't reach the metal behind.

The Noco instructions ask to drill a 2" hole. Since hole drills can be "sloppy" and I wanted as much plastic behind the plug as possible, I drilled a hole at 1 7/8 and cleaned it up to 1 15/16" with a barrel sander, since this is truer to the diameter of the Noco plug. (A 2"-hole saw will still work OK)

Love it!! I’ve got to do this too for winter storage. Got pics of how you did the under the hood stuff? Where you put the charging transformer? Are you single or dual battery? Thanks!!

Yes, I do have two batteries. I put the charger next to the driver's side battery. The Noco Gen5 X1 is sufficient to keep both batteries fresh for long periods of time.

Installed this phone mount. Seems nice but all the clips on the plastic piece underneath broke when I removed it. Even with me knowing ahead of time and trying to be gentle. Oh well. Also stuck these dot rigid fog lights in a couple holes in the front bumper. Wired them in with the other fogs so they come on together. Next project winch time.

Took 'er up to the mouth of the Two Hearted River and did some hiking with the dog. Lowered the SNOW TIRES down to high 20s psi (pencil gauge said 30, so its off a bit). Nice temps in the low 30s with a light wind off the shore, which is why I went there - climb some dunes and throw the frisbee to water level for the dog to chase!!

Started the chrome delete. It is definitely more work than I expected!

@Dented

I bought the truck used so, I am sure the person that order the truck left it off. I was a bit shocked my F150 Lariat had it. I never could get it to work though. Now I don't have to worry about it!

Did you wrap the door trim or is were those chrome strips replaced with black ones? If replacements, do you know the part numbers?
 
Ordered a set of these on Amazon for $299 thought it was a pretty good deal yesterday. I'll be getting them paint matched for cheap though a friend of my God father who works at the same ford dealership after hours off the books. Excited to see how they look on the truck.

Did you go with the BMC Hitch Bar lights? I added them with the Rigid lights and it's phenomenal.
Got some last week for black Friday. Going on next week
 
Installed the freshly acquired license plates today, also installed the grill cover since highs hitting the 40s are unlikely to return until mid March or later. The truck seemed happier, warmed up to full operating temperature a good bit faster on the trip home.

The Black Friday NOCO Genius 10 & Genius 5 chargers arrived today.

Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015's in stock LT285/75R18 size are scheduled to be installed Thursday.
