I think some flares look cool, but have heard some guys complain that after a while, they found out the flares had worn through the paint by rubbing against it. So chose wisely!

Had front fenders on the 2011 and they are needed with the larger tires in my opinion.
Would like to get some for the new one on the back since the tires will stick a few inches out.

Ordered:
Bushwhacker Pocket Style Fenders in Summit White- all four corners
(2) 6" Rigid Industries E Series lights and bracket for front bumper
WeatherTech floor liners
Polished Chevy Badges

Still thinking about-
Headrest TV's- usually we take the suburban when the kids are along so trying to decide if I want/will use them
Fab Fours Bumpers- I love the look and they are designed for the sensors but then i paid extra for painted bumpers from the factory...
Grill- maybe an all black grill?
Defender Roof Rack- have one on the current truck and love how it looks but it does create wind noise going down the road. Also, I don't think I would put lights on it again. I went with lights in the bumper because you get so much reflection off the hood with a light rack up top. The rack and light bar also affects satellite radio reception.
