    Got my new wheels and tires on my 2015 today. Black Rhino Glamis 18” with Cooper STT Pro 295 70 18. Had to do a little plastic trimming on the front end with the Bilstein 5100s at the second setting. (Despite the fact that the discount tire guys guaranteed we wouldn’t need to trim.)

    Trying to decide what to do next. I’m leaning toward a front bumper first since I had to hack some plastic on the factory one. Maybe fender flares? Thoughts?

    Great look!!! You might want to consider different running boards to complement the black.

    Welcome from CO! You will like those STTs. Stampede Ruff Riderz flares would look good IMO...

    Truck looks great! Personally I am not a fan of fender flares and would leave it alone. But you know the old saying “opinions are like........

    Thanks for all the comments! I think I’m leaning toward a front bumper first, then new running boards.

    This website is bad for my wallet. Ordered color matched side mirror caps, doorhandles, and grill today.

    Sliders arrive tomorrow and ADD Venom bumper early next week.

    I’m now done spending money for a while. :D

    Just tried to post up the factory chrome door handles and mirror caps in the for sale section for free but can’t post there until my account is 30 days old. If anyone wants them just cover shipping and they’re yours.

    Maybe I’ll message a mod and see what they can do. Just wanted to make them available to someone who can use them.
