Fix29 replied to 2017Z's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500WA409Y and G1K are both acceptable in the paint world and will get you the proper color. They are also both found on the sticker in the glove box. The WA number can be marked in several variances such as 409Y, u409Y, L409Y (U-meaning upper body color, L-lower body color)
Fix29 replied to 2017Z's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I work at a PPG automotive paint store and we deal with this all the time. Color names are so subjective and misleading thus why we put emphasis on getting the proper paint code, not name. WA409Y is your paint code and it's located in the glove box. Just as you discovered though, it's all the same color, Sacre Blue. Yet when it's on a Sierra it becomes Stone Blue, a Silverado it becomes Deep Ocean Blue, etc. At the end of the day they are all OEM code WA409Y.

It is also available as an entire assembly but I chose to remove the center portion as opposed to color matching a new shell. The emblem is attached with self tapping screws to the protruding plastic nubs that stick out. (The original grille has push tabs that go into these nubs that are not utilized by the new grille.)

I have not had any issues to date. It should be noted that I do not put a ton of miles on my truck however. I probably have less than 4k miles on the level/lift. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Tapatalk
Yes. Not sure what a shop would charge. I swapped my block out with a taller one myself and its really simple if you have tools and any mechanical inclination. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Tapatalk

My dealer will install the GM kit for $450 parts and labor included, definitely something I plan to add in the future.
You simply remove the factory block.
Fix29 replied to BlueWrapper's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & ModificationsNo problem. Very clean looking truck!
Fix29 replied to L67's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Definitely one of the things I preferred about the Sierra is the Elevation does come with fog lights. I am surprised you don't have a back up camera though, my Elevation has it as well as all the others I looked at.
