I agree as I have seen them all at the first glance with one addition; the wheels are 18" exactly the same as the Tremors' but I could not read the tyre size. Can they be 275/70/18 then? Because they do not seem too smaller than those of the Bronco Raptors' which are supposed to be 37" I guess.
Just an FYI, The Rangers w/Tremor packages have 17” wheels, not 18”. This is copied right out of the configurator….

Also, the current Tremor uses the same wheels as my Ranger Raptor, which have a different spoke design to those fitted to this test vehicle.

I see it kept the Watts link. Bravo!

If this thing does get the 3.0L Nano V6 it will be hard to resist.
It will be nice, but unless the supply issues are resolved by next year, the inflated ADM price tag on anything "Tremor" or "Raptor" will make it easy for me to resist. This is going to be a sweet truck. I will likely be in the market in summer of 2024, (unless I am completely in love with my F-150), but I refuse to overpay for something I want ( But don't need ) just to have it.

Agreed.
I see we have something else in common besides F-150's. Here's a photo of the nine point I took during last fall's PA archery season. Looks an awful lot like the trail cam photo in your avatar. That deer didn't happen to have a double white patch on it's throat, did it?

Nice buck!! I would have to look back at the pics, but I don't remember a double white patch on the throat. That buck was never seen again on my trail cam after 2019. He ran with two other bucks, both of whom I still had pics of last fall and one I had a pic of in December. Not sure where you harvested that deer, but that particular cam was in elk county, about 2 miles from cameron county border.

Southwest Clearfield County. Not super far away (70-80 miles?) but I doubt he would have traveled that far. Jordan's Taxidermy in Punxsutawney is doing the mount for me.

Rear exiting exhaust (currently dumps just in front of the rear axle)
I'm not sure but exhaust after the axle might be a law in the US. I can't think of a passenger car that drops in front of the rear axle since the late 70's. but I could be wrong. I remember seeing one of these Dodges when I was a kid.

I have seen aftermarket exhausts come out before the rear axle but they may be marketed "for offroad use only".

In the rest of the world (and I presume the rules are the same in the US) goods carrying vehicles only have to have the exhaust exit to the rear of the cabin, which this does (in Australia it's some weird statement about being to the rear of the last welded joint of the cabin or something stupid like that). For passenger vehicles, the exhaust must be to the rear of the last opening of the cabin, so in Aus side exiting exhausts are technically illegal on cars, but not on utes, vans or heavy vehicles.

To some extent exhaust rules can be state specific in the US. Or at least enforced in different ways. I live in Pennsylvania and we have annual safety inspections. Some states do not. For example, if your vehicle has any rust holes in the body sheetmetal it will not pass PA state inspection. PA also does not allow the exhaust to exit under the passenger compartment and that applies to trucks as well as cars. However, that doesn't mean the exhaust can't exit to the side of the passenger compartment. There have been plenty of examples of that on new high performance Ford vehicles. Early Shelby GT350's, AC Cobras, some Roush Mustangs, the 2000 Cobra R Mustang and even the old Ford Lightning pickups. Although on the Lightning the exit was still behind the passenger compartment but in front of the rear wheels.
