    Ford Superduty Tremor "off road" 2020 F250/F350.

    you're going to have to use me as a reference, because outside of Ford's official press release there isnt anything published, and as far as i know, im the only person on this forum that was at Ford last week to see it. I dont have RTI numbers, other than what i was told which was that the...

    Ford Superduty Tremor "off road" 2020 F250/F350.

    I and one other person were the only "influencers" that were invited to the launch event. i do lots of things, in this instance i was invited by Ford to preview the truck in Detroit this past Tuesday as a media guest. i also serve in an advisory position to Ford on the Super Duty, Ranger, and...

    Ford Superduty Tremor "off road" 2020 F250/F350.

    there is so much misinformation in this thread: THERE WILL BE AN OPTIONAL WARN WINCH AT LAUNCH the springs are softer and more flexy, 30mm front lift and 40mm rear, but thanks to wizardry, PFM, and satanic rituals, Ford figured out how to built a coil and leaf pack that can handle weight and...

    Ram and Ford HD owners.....enter here.

    Im well aware of what the power wagon is, i own one. the Tremor will have an optional Warn winch, they're currently doing crash testing with its cradle. And dont discount the Tremor's front LSD, it paired with the raptors extremely advanced traction control system should make it more capable...

    Ram and Ford HD owners.....enter here.

    having seen it in person at Ford's launch event in Detroit last week, i can whole heartily disagree. The PW is an analog platform, the Tremor is a digital, both with the same end goal, and both equally capable. The only thing the PW has over the Tremor in performance is the disconnecting front...

    Diesel for overlanding- are you happy with the choice?

    diesel is on average a dollar per gallon more than regular gasoline across the country, assuming a generous 6mpg increase on the diesel vs a gasoline truck, and diesel engines carrying a $10,000 premium over gas engine as an option, you literally cannot argue the math. Attached is the cost...

    Diesel for overlanding- are you happy with the choice?

    At the current rate of initial purchase, maintenance, and fueling, assuming linear fuel averages for use and no towing - the the break even point for a diesel engine is around 275,000 miles. obviously that margin narrows once heavy loads are placed on the gas engines and economy suffers due to...

    Surus: 2017 Power Wagon build

    Lewis Built arms showed up over the weekend apparently - I've been out of town since last Tuesday so who knows that they look like. I do know that they weigh 45lbs a piece though, which does not sound like a good time. otherwise, on my drive back from the airport in Cincinnati, i reset the fuel...

    Ram 2500/3500 Info

    89 recommended for maximum fuel economy and power, but 87 is acceptable. It just adjusts the VCT and spark timing

    Tire review for the big boys, falken at3w on f250

    the AT3w's are black magic. They have a very soft and grippy compound that you can deflect with your finger, but still somehow manage to wear like iron.

    Ram 2500/3500 Info

    the 68 came out in 2007 as the standard transmission behind the cummins and have been continually improved and strengthened. From what i can discern, the 6.4 and the 68 have been paired together as standard since 2014, which is also when the 6.4 came out.
