My thought on the radiator bumper issue is that if Buschur can doulbe the size of the intercooler then we should be able to find some way to increase radiator capacity. One day.
To be fair that intercooler fits by virtue of removing the grille shutter assembly.

I dont mind modifications as long as they improve functionality. I live in the tropics so maybe I dont need a shutter system. On another note maybe a functional heat reduction hood scoop may be enough.

Question…..I saw a pic which seem to set the tires on the Tremor slightly beyond the body. Will mud flaps be needed for any off roading with the tremor?

I would 100% get mud flaps. I'm running wider tires than this (245s) and they fling a bunch of crap on the body without mud flaps.

Again, if all you want is an interior just Katzkin it. You'll pay less, probably get better quality product, and can get exactly what you want. It's just the seats that are different.
Also, found this and took a screen shot. DEFINITELY door panels/speaker covers are dark.

Positives
All blacked out interior
Much better approach
Would love it in black or yellow . Not grey
Goat modes
Negatives
I don’t like the orange accent on the rim . Give me all black rims please .
towing hitch ? Why? I wouldn’t tow with this .
still no wireless CarPlay? How? 2k package that should come with it .
front camera when? Feels like it would benfit from . Replace the tow hitch and give the customer the difference of price.
Overall looks like a fun off roader . I get this over fx4 package . Since I don’t want tow with my maverick. If you want off road fun this will do the job . It won’t do the Baja run or anything but off road fun it can do without worrying about smashing your front fender etc ..

Is the Tremor Appearance Package something that builds on top of the Tremor off-road package, or is it available without the Tremor Off-road package? If appearance package can be added on its own, I’d like to know what comes with it.
It’s apart of the tremor package you can add on. Cant buy separate.

Bronco Sport Badlands is going to outperform the Maverick Tremor I bet due to the shorter wheelbase :) I still think the Subaru Outback Wilderness might beat in it certain situations. I was impressed with it in this test -
My point was mostly that they are selling it as a "off road truck" when in my mind it's more like a off road capable SUV than a off road truck. Any off road truck in any other brand with a locker would pretty much squash it. For the price it's still not a terrible deal but with the lack of 4K towing and less payload it doesn't seem like a great option. If you need a off road truck buy something else - if you want a truck that kind of looks like a off road truck and don't plan to really off road than the Tremor could be ok.

Taking my FX4 on off road terrian in the NW the problem isn't just the clearance, it's the unibody and I'm not sure the clutch addition will solve it. The AWD system has been really good, but when the terrian gets really uneven you need articulation and/or a short wheelbase helps. Likely most Tremor owners wont ever even test it to the limits.
The BS badlands will do better it’s small crossover suv . No truck bed though . The comfort of a bed and the looks go to the maverick . I can’t wait to see comparison between the two in the field . The 2k package is to give off roading fun without worrying about front end damage like the fx4 where the departure isn’t great. The modes also a plus . For the money the maverick tremor could be a winner once testing gets done .

Generally how does an off-road tuned suspension feel on the paved road in terms of ride comfort? Does it translate to a smoother bump-absorbing ride or a bumpier choppier ride?

In theory, it should be a smoother ride at the expense of "looser" handling, as a true off-toad suspension is soft with lots of travel.

However....in the case of the F150 (I've had both FX4 & reg.), there was really no discernible difference, IMO. I expect the Mav will be the same.
