I would buy a Lariat Tremor today if there was a SuperCrew/longbed option. Hopefully they will address this literal shortcoming in the next generation?

Interesting how everyone is providing full reviews, and yet TFL said the embargo doesn't lift for 5 days...

I also wish that were available but I'm not waiting two more years. I'll just have to be more creative until that time!

The Edmunds matchup of the Tremor with the TRD Pro is strange... they match the Tremor versus the TRD Pro the whole way along, and at the end they recommend just the lesser priced TRD, which they don't indicate anything about throughout the rest of the review/article. Kinda strange one there.

Ring me up when a scab version is available. Otherwise I’m good with what I got. Even if I upgraded with new heavy duty springs, Fox 2.5 shocks all around and some ultimate rubber I’d still be ahead.

I really like this version of the Ranger. About the only things I would change about it would be to give it true rock rails instead, and a steel gas tank skid. Otherwise an awesome base for a daily driver / 4x4 touring rig. The reviews really bag on the interior--I test drove a Lariat and frankly, coming from my Jeep JK, I thought it was perfect (and practically like Star Trek compared to what I'm used to). Just the right amount of tech without being over the top, and still straightforward and truck like. It also has a far more comfortable seating position than the Colorado, Tacoma, or Gladiator. Maybe I'm just getting old... Kinda thinking about retiring the JK for extreme trail duty and doors off/top down weather, and getting one of these, if the deal is right. I do wish there was more info out there about the 6G Ranger, however.

I'm tempted to go look at one when they hit lots. Maybe I'm wrong, but it sounds like it's just all the available off-road parts we can buy now added from the factory.

I'd want a tune with it, I wonder when that will be available.

It seems Ford is abandoning the Scab off road market. They did it with the Super Durty Tremor, The 2021 Raptor and I have yet to see a Scab Ranger Raptor test mule, so likely there too. I was able to sell my factory Hankooks for $350 and upgrade to the Generals that are on the Tremor for a difference of under $200 with rebates. I installed Bilsteins for under $400. So for $600 I have all of same off road ability as a Tremor, minus the little bit of (percieved) better rear articulation from the multi pack leafs. I don't see the Tremor as being a great value honestly. In the real world, I can buy a $45k ZR2 for about $40k, the Tremor will likely sell at MSRP for the foreseeable future and be less off road capable by comparison. Granted, I don't want a ZR2, but for those cross shopping, it is a better off road package for about $5k less comparable. If the Tremor came with a front Torsen or something, it would appeal much more to me personally.

Why'd you pick Bilsteins? I want to level my Ranger, well, I want the front 1" taller, so I was looking at Eibachs. After that I'm seriously considering some 17s with better tires.
