Did you know you can make your Ford truck even stronger? The Ford Tremor winch might be the accessory that you didn’t know you need. This integrated 12,000 lbs winch can now be added to more Ford models.
Add the Ford Tremor Winch to your Super Duty truck
According to Driving.CA, the Ford Tremor Winch is now available on all Super Duty trucks. You can add them to 2020 and newer models. This 12,000 lbs winch used to only be available with the Tremor off-road package, but now it’s available as a factory option and or dealer-installed accessory.
I have personally been stuck down an ice-covered incline and was pulled out by a guy with a winch. Now I’m wondering why I don’t have one of my own! The Tremor Winch can be added to trucks with the 7.3-liter gas-powered engine or the 6.7-liter Power Stroke Diesel V8 engine.
But you also need to include the optional dual batteries and dual 397-amp alternators. This is to ensure that your truck has enough juice to power the winch.
The winch is fully integrated behind the front steel bumper to optimize airflow and clearance. Also, the winch features high-tensile strength, abrasion-resistant synthetic cable.
It can be powered by a remote control key fob to reduce the number of wires and things needed to use it. A wired remote control is available too. The winch is $3,000 when ordered from the factory. Add the cost of labor if you opt to have it factory installed.
What is the Ford Tremor package?
The winch is included with the Ford Tremor off-roading package for Super Duty trucks. Ford Super Duty trucks equipped with the Tremor package gain more off-roading power while maintaining an excellent towing and payload capacity.
Tremor off-roading upgrades include 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac maximum traction tires that are mounted on a set of 18-inch matte-finished black wheels.
You also get a two-inch lift and a shorter air dam for 10.8-inches of ground clearance. According to SP Ford, the Tremor package allows Super Duty models to ford water up to 33-inches.
Suspension upgrades include progressive-rate springs, a rear stabilizer bar tuned at a lower spring rate to absorb impacts, and custom 1.7-inch piston twin-tube dampers. Off-road running boards also protect the truck.
The package included the same extended-axle vent tubes and beefy skid plates that are found on the FX4 models. You also get a rear locking differential and the four-wheel-drive transfer case that the Ford Raptor has.
Is the Ford Tremor package worth it?
Adding the Ford Tremor package costs about $4,000 to add to the F-150, F-250, and F-350 models. So, for an extra $1,000, you get everything else that the package has to offer instead of only the winch.
The Ram Power Wagon package for the Ram 2500 costs about $7,995. So, the Tremore package seems like one heck of a deal. The Ram 2500 also has an optional winch for about $3,000.
