Hey everyone, I recently had a minor accident and bumped my buddy’s tow hitch and pretty much have destroyed all the cosmetic parts of my 2015 z71 plus package bumper. All brackets and such are fine and I’ve gotten some parts in already including upper cap, but I got an aftermarket shell and when talking to with the body shop we’re both unsure as to if you can put any filler panel and skid plate on it. He was worried that it may not fit but I would assume it should be the same to bolt on( z71, and non z71 filler panels and skid plates) has anyone ever swapped from one trim levels filler panel and skid plate to another? I don’t see a need to buy a $190 skid plate (z71 plus)  if I’m just gonna paint it anyway. Thanks in advance!

I swapped my front bumper filler from one with out holes for the tow hooks to one with tow hooks holes no problem bolted right up and I have a 2014 Silverado LT the bumper skin should be the same for all 2014-15 besides the color ie chrome black and color match

The shell is the same, I think. Don't the tow hooks come out through holes in the plastic fillers?

I always thought the shell was the same for all of them fit-wise, the only differentiating factor was whether or not you had parking sensors and/or fog lights.

      Starting off I am sure there are threads that answer these questions but I had trouble finding answers, and it’s my first time lifting a truck so trying to be thorough.
       
      So I have my 2018 1500 Z71 CCSB that once my warranty runs out I plan to lift it, leaving stock till that day, I’ve been looking at BDS lifts and Zone, the 6” and 6.5” is the height I want to go with. Zone’s 6.5” kit from what I’ve learned is a maxed out 4.5” kit basically. BDS 6” has either the coil over package or the strut spacer package I believe, I have stamped steel control arms for UCA, LCA I can’t remember exactly and will check when I get home. My questions are based toward the BDS option as I do not want to use the zone unless I have to
       
      My questions are is it worth it to get the coil over system vs the kit without coil overs, because that’s almost 1700$ more?
       
      What kind of installation costs is it typically for a installation?
       
      Has anyone had issues since they installed their kit?
       
      if I go with the coil overs, should I do the base set  of coilovers or the ones with DSC?
       
      Id like to have 4WP install the kit so I could have their warranty on the install along with the BDS lifetime warranty, but not sure if they would do the install (I haven’t called them to see about this yet) 
       
      I’m going to use the custom offsets site to see what wheel/tire combos I can run but if y’all have pictures that would be awesome to see to get a ballpark

      I haven't seen anyone with official numbers. displaying the height of our trucks so I decided to pull it in the garage and measure up a couple of points.
       
      Keep in mind, this is a 2019 Trail Boss Custom, Z71, Crew Cab, Standard Bed, with ~3000miles. Everything is completely stock and the tank was 95% full.
       
      I measured the following heights;
      - all 4 corners(at the fender) measured at the center of the wheel
      - front diff (lowest point)
      - rear diff (lowest point)
      - front shroud/bumper (lowest point)
       
      I've taken the measurements twice, once SETTLED and once UNSETTLED. To better define the terms, the settled measurements were taken by simply driving the truck in the garage, and measuring. I weigh around 200lbs ( seems to matter as there was a little lean tot he driver side).
       
      The unsettled measurements were taken by, lifting the vehicle, front and back, just to the point where the tires were off, then slowly letting the jack down and removing it.
       
      SETTLED Measurements;
      DS front - 39 1/4"
      DS rear - 41 3/8"
      PS front - 39 1/2"
      PS rear - 41 3/8"
      front diff - 13"
      rear diff -  9"
      bumper - 13 5/16"
       
      UNSETTLED Measurements;
      DS front - 39 7/8"
      DS rear - 41 1/2"
      PS front - 40 1/8"
      PS rear - 41 3/8"
      front diff - 13 3/8"
      rear diff - 9"
      bumper - 14"
       
      I've added all the pictures to this gallery ----> 
       
       
      I've attached a couple of critical photos I think everyone should be aware of.

      Hello, does anyone have any info on which package truck I have? I know there is a Custom Sport edition but I think that is only for crew cabs it also is a different shade of white than what I have. There also is a Midnight edition for the all balck Silverados... I am just curious as to what my package is called because where I am located I havent seen a truck like mine since I have owned it the past 6 months or so. Thank you in advance!

I have all service records and receipts for everything done. I can't upload pictures on here due to the max single file size limit of 1 MB (my pictures are HDR ~1.5-2 MB each), so I included a link to a Google Drive album with pictures below.
