If this is a pre-production model there's the possibility that it doesn't have the Tremor specific knuckles that Ford has touted. So, assuming that - maybe this particular truck doesn't actually have the final front suspension components and height that the production trucks will.

Seriously!!!! What the hell are they thinking!!!!!
Chevy brags in a commercial about OFF ROAD TIRES and 2" LIFT on their Trail Boss models and FORD CANT even LEVEL A TREMOR!?

Ford! Hello! YOU LOOK WEAK.
Come on Man!
Exactly! Why cant ford give us a 2 inch front lift from the factory like the trail boss? It'll give more clearance when off-roading, and give it a more off-road rig look. Maybe it just makes too much sense. Either that or they like to keep the rake to hide the rear axle rust better :LOL:

its just why?? you're paying for an off-road package, check out the F250 tremor, ranger tremor, hell even the trail boss package on the Silverado and see how much beefier they look compared to their regular stock form. They look more level and aggressive but meanwhile on the other hand you have the f150 looking like more of a work truck than a regular non tremor F150. Looks like a missed opportunity to me.

A little bit of both, it would get better front end clearance too if the front was leveled out a bit better but it’s mainly value. If you don’t get a lift/level, or upgraded shocks like fox/bilstein/etc then it looks like just a wheel/tire combo upgrade if anything and doesn’t look as valuable to me as the other model tremor packages. It doesn’t seem like you’re getting your money’s worth to step up from an fx4 package. Just my opinion

I think everyone needs to remember their "tough looking" "top of the line" off road machine is always going to be the Raptor. The tremor was just meant to be a middle of the road between a stock looking F-150 and the Raptor. And yes, I really do hope they fix that rake, it's terrible... That will definitely make it look a little more balanced.

if you look at a stock SD next to a F150 you would say the same thing has nothing to do with the Tremor package

To me you just sound salty that we don't all love that insane rake on the tremor package for this truck, did you personally design it or what? :ROFLMAO: You're paying for what's supposed to be an upgrade to the fx4 package so where's the clearances, beefier looks, or upgraded shocks to follow through with that? Like I said it looks like it fell short compared to the F250 tremor package.
