I have a 2017 Midnight Edition Z71 Tahoe.  Great truck!


I'd be interested in mods people have made to this truck.


Particularly, has anyone blacked out the remaining chrome (side window moldings, grill, and headlight frames)?  If so, how?  Are there replacement parts available for this?


Thank you

You can get an RST grill like this for around $360...00ed06bb66c05a392e46b86e1103279b.jpg

Looking at the parts system (from memory) the upper window trim was chrome or black, the lower was ready to spray...  Not checked the grille for parts.


I prefer black also, the LTZ / Premier has a chrome line on the step board as well i notice.

That looks really sharp. Ditching that giant ugly air dam is a huge plus looks wise also.

      Hey everyone, I have a 2018 5.3l sierra 2wd, I want to install a whipple supercharger kit I've found, it says that no internal mods or upgrades are needed to handle the extra power. But I'm sure that that's not the case. I'm thinking I need to at least install a cam and upgrade the fuel system a little bit. As well as maybe beef up my driveshaft due to the common issues being reported on the stocks. Any thoughts or advice helps. I've never owned a supercharger, or modified a truck this much, so for my first time I want to do it right.

      Sorry guys, long post.
      Haven't been around much lately, with engineering new equipment for mostly garment manufacturers, travelling all over, working 18 hour days.
      Now I'm retired. Thank God 
      For those that don't know me, you are lucky?
      I've always modified my cars and trucks. My  son and I built many cars and trucks that have been featured vehicles at SEMA. Some sponsored by GM an Avalanche. Some from Ford, An F250 Lifted. Both of those ended up in front pages of magazines. 
      My son decided to get a real job, and I didn't want to continue by myself, the reason I was doing it so my son could learn mechanical electrical stuff. Since he always also modified cars, vans, mini trucks, etc.
      And wanted to learn from the biggest hacker in the world.
      This is my current truck and more likely my last, so I'm enjoying to the fullest.

      Planning on leveling my 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 with the MotoFab front 3" and rear 2" leveling kit.  Planning on fitting 33" inch tires on my truck after.
      Trying to decide if I want 18" wheel rims or 20" wheel rims.. so if you could post pics of your trucks that would be great. Thanks!
