Thanks EpicLT. Great insight as usual. Druder, I'll PM you to get your thoughts.
This is a question I had as well. I don't believe there is any weather stripping or other gasket on the trim itself but I can't say positively that it doesn't weather proof the door in some capacity. Maybe someone will chime in that would know that for sure. Regardless, I'd be willing ship mine for you to install ahead of shipping yours if it does turn out that it could allow moisture to enter the doors.
I have a Lund Genesis roll up and I give it mixed reviews. It's a soft roll up that uses velcro. The price is pretty good for sure, however, the fitment seems sketchy. I does a decent job of keeping rain out, but I can't for the life of me get it to look perfectly taught across my bed. No matter the temp, there are ALWAYS wrinkles running the length of the bed. It does have adjustable tension and I have played with that plenty, but it seems to be more for the taughtness from front to back not for side to side (where my issues seem to lie). I pull and pull at the sides in attempt to get those wrinkles to flatten out, I've installed and reinstalled and even made a warranty claim (which wasn't easy, but eventually they followed through) to no avail. So, for functionality I give it a 7/10 and for aesthetics 3/10. Good luck with your search!
Still looking for a trade parter.
Update: Just snagged this off Ebay. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F192872394572 It should do the trick without breaking the bank on a whole new grille. Still looking for a trade partner on the window trim. No bites so far on the "for sale/wanted" board. And the more I see trucks on the road the more I think I want to switch to chrome side moldings too. Really liking the chrome accents I've put on so far.
Got it! Very appreciative of all your help!
Thanks, I appreciate that, but I have already added door handles and mirror caps.
Jason23 started following WTT My Black Window Trim for Your Chrome (2017 Silverado Double Cab)
Jason23 posted a topic in For Sale/WantedI'm looking to trade exterior window trim for my 2017 Silverado double cab. I have black and I am looking to add some chrome to mine. My truck is a 2017 but it was purchased new in January of 2018. Also, if any of you are "dechroming" your trucks and have your chrome side molding (door trim) and are looking to unload it, I may be interested depending on condition and price. Reply or PM me with any interest. Thanks!
Yeah. Armed with the info you've provided me, I think I'm going to go ahead and throw it out there on the "Wanted" board.
Perfect! Thanks! Again, great info and detail. I appreciate it very much. Now to find a trade partner...
Never mind! Found them (I think)! https://www.amazon.com/Swordfish-67313-15pc-Moulding-Chevrolet-Silverado/dp/B01NBF1A4T/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=silverado+window+trim+clips&qid=1554482024&s=gateway&sr=8-4#customerReviews
Ahhhhhhh....excellent pic! I see now. So the clips aren't part of the trim, rather clipped into a channel on the trim. So, if you break clips uninstalling, you simply take out the broken clips and replace them with new ones and the trim is ready for reinstall. Thank you for the excellent info and forth coming pic on screw. I REALLY appreciate it. What would I search to get these clips? Do they have a formal name or part number? Amazon? Ebay? Other?
