  1. The ONLY color as far as I'm concerned! I removed the Texas Edition emblems (that sucked!) and added the 10" Z71 emblems.
  2. Yeah I might have to get those bowties.
  3. Let me know if you need any pointers or help. It's not all that hard, just time consuming. The painting always takes the most time.
  4. That's what I wanted on my last Silverado, chrome grill slats like the high country's. You could very well paint them chrome if you're willing to put in the work but if you have the stock grill I'm not sure it'd be worth it though and would be much more work. My grill is the high country with painted black slats/fins/whatever you want to call them. It came on my LT Z71 Texas edition. You may be able to find one like it online, I haven't checked.
  5. Totally agree! It seems the auto makers are always just a tad behind the times on modifications. I absolutely hate all the blacked out trim on vehicles these days and it has totally taken over now. I appreciate the compliment, MOD on!
  6. I did, yes. Sanded, primed, sanded then 3-4 coats of basecoat and about the same for clearcoat all from rattle cans I ordered from automotive touchup.com. Be sure to have plenty of sandpaper-400, 800, & 1200 is what I use. lightly scuff them to begin with, then prime, sand smooth, paint (sand if there are any mess-ups then base again), then plenty of clear. I've painted many parts on my cars this way. No-one but you will know it wasn't professionally done. Not terribly hard. I used flat blade screwdrivers to pry off the melted tabs along the back. Oh I use plenty of clear, that's where all the shine comes in and also smooths it all out.
  7. I have a 2017 Z71 and all front suspension components are steel, verified with a magnet. I just had the rough country 2" lift done and it is the U spacer on the bottom, no issues with 18" stockers.
  8. Bought and tried the wrap. It sucked trying to get it to conform to all the bends and then trimming it showed the black edges. Basically, I couldn’t do it. I then removed the “slats” off the grill and painted them. That sucked also but painting I can do. I like it.

    Nice! I would like that mirror upgrade, but holy wiring. Look forward to your posts. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. I’ll make a cold start to idle soon and post it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Rough Country 2” leveling kit, 2017 Z71. Not the best picture. It’s now about 3/4-1” high out back, a bit less than 2 full inches of lift. Got it done at a local shop. It’s crazy how much of a difference it makes in the feel looking out over the hood. Definitely like it. No ride or drive difference, all good. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. I like those fender caps, exactly what I’d want. Guess I’ll go search GM parts sites. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. I got dual exit behind both tires for sound dispersion, crowd pleasing, and so I could hear it. I don’t even understand why they have the option to exit on the passenger side only. Makes no sense to me. I’m paying for it to hear it and for it to be heard by all. And man does the ATAK do the job! From stock it’ll take some getting used to but after a few days you’ll love it. You’ll love pushing the gas pedal more and thus hate stopping for gas more. Lol. It’s a love hate relationship with 99% love. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. These trucks with the electric steering definitely take some getting used to. I think it feels too loose or touchy also. I wish we could tighten it up some. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
