    god damn it you yellow belly! they pulled a tremor into the lot the day I was signing off on my raptor and my jaw damn near dropped.. those things are bad as hell and now my local ford dealership just got one in and tossed one on the front lawn to show it off.. I have reconsidered if it was worth it to switch it up but problem is I like to go fast and that tremor just won't keep up at the end of the day

    Good luck with the Tremor, looks like a cool truck. I just hope you know that your dick will shrink back to it's previous smaller size after you get rid of the Raptor. The big size increase we all experience after buying a Raptor is NOT permanent!

    I’m unsure about this - the tremor community swears their dicks grew by a couple inches since taking delivery.

    Congrats on the purchase! I drove behind a blue Tremor on the way to work today and they are good looking trucks for sure! I’d be swayed to get one if it would fit in my garage. That’s a hell of a trade in value on your Raptor too...can’t pass that up! Enjoy the Tremor and yes post pics when you take delivery!

    Congrats. I tried doing the same, trade in the raptor for a tremor. No luck in Oregon. Lots of low ball offers for my truck and all wanted ADM on the tremors. Enjoy.

    Congrats....I can see why you did it considering you got 19k mi of fun for only 3k

    My question is about just that, Fun......have you driven a 7.3 tremor and if so how would it compare on the fun scale compared to a raptor

    I’ve test driven a tremor both with 6.7l diesel and 7.3l gas. Thought that they were a good amount of fun! I’ll post back here with a deeper analysis. One of the reasons I did it is because the tremor gives me more payload/towing capability without the sagging, out of factory. I can put a rack and a tent without issues. No Deavers or eibachs needed. And I still have 2000lbs payload left.

    If you have to tow anything, maybe consider the tremor, but if you actually have to tow anything - maybe consider neither

    Yeah well I diesel one can def make more hp/tq than a raptor & esp when tuned up, but problem is it’s still a HD truck that weighs like 1000 lbs more than a raptor (at least) & even if you’re making more power to weight than a raptor it’ll never be able to stop/turn/corner like a raptor on or off road - and the Raptor kinda sucks as far as that goes to begin with lol!

    I recently swapped seats w/ my buddy has a 2016 F350 w/ def delete & tune making like 550whp or something crazy & it certainly puts a grin on your face gunning it from a stoplight but holy hell does it drive like a lumbering wagon, If you’re getting on the thing regularly on the street I feel like you’d chew up the front ball joints/bearings w/ the stress cornering after coming down from a higher speed and all the weight over the nose- now driving it as intended or towing clearly that wouldn’t be an issue, but I was driving it like I drive my raptor & I felt like I’d chew through that stuff & front brakes much quicker
