THKBARON'S 2016 LT 1500 Build

Postby thkbaron [OP] » Feb 12 2018, 1:36am

I probably should have done this sooner but I'm going to actually go back through my pictures and do a proper build for my truck. Photobucket apparently doesn't want to cooperate with pictures so I'll redo this thing so others may look at it. I'll start with my truck when it was still on the lot at the dealership and I'll try to get this thing up to date as soon as I can.......

I really wasn't keen on any chrome but I got a good deal on the truck so I learned to live with it. Waldoch Customs from Forest Lake MN did what they called their M80 package to it. You can go to their website at waldoch.com and see what they do. Of course I wasn't happy with it so I requested they change a few things. I didn't care for the wheels and though the tires were too small for a truck with a level kit and big flares. They agreed to put on 18 inch fuel pump wheels with 285 65 18 trail grapplers. I thought the 18's would look a bit better since the biggest tire I could get would be a 33 inch. Here's what it looked like after the rim and tire swap. The wouldn't put a -12 offset on it so I was stuck with a +1. Of course I couldn't have gotten that offset in that wheel either.

I was gonna say that the flares looked a bit off with the offset you have.

Once I got it home and became a member of this forum I realized there was no way I was going to leave it like it was. The tire and wheel setup was driving me nuts. I didn't like it from day one simply because I used to have the set setup on my RAM in 20's with 34's. They just looked too small either the wheel or the tire or both. That change will come eventually. This style wheel in an 18 just looks so small...

Something with the flares needed to change so I ended up getting some 3/8 inch spacers. That made things a little better. I believe I figured the offset was around -8 after that. There was also something else that was bothering me and after enough people mentioned it I decided to do something about it.......the flare color was slightly off! I'm glad it wasn't just me. I thought I noticed it at the dealership too. Here are a couple pictures with the spacers and wrong color of the flare you can really see. You can't really tell the spacer addition because of the angle but oh well.

I can't remember the timeline but I eventually called waldoch and sent them both pictures of my truck and pictures of others with white color matched flares and they agreed the color was off. Doing some quick thinking I took advantage of it and asked that they changed the flare to a smaller OEM flare which they agreed to. Finally my offset solution would be solved. Almost....... Waldoch has some of the best customer service I've seen. The owners are fantastic so if you live near them feel free to drop by and check the place out.

A couple other little things I did to it were remove all the waldoch badging they put on it. There was a reflective sticker on the tailgate that came off the second I pulled in the driveway, I eventually removed the one on the windshield even though I kind of liked it. (I figured I'd basically took most everything off the truck that they did so I wasn't going to give them complete credit any more. haha. Although the fender vents they did are still there and I like that touch. I took the M80 sticker off the back and put a black Z71 decal on. I also put Z71 sill trim pieces in. Yes I realize that it's not a true Z71. It might as well be though because it has every single option a Z71 has minus rancho shocks and the color match bumpers and grille. My truck is set up with the max tow package with 3.73 gears and locker.
