Got the painted bupmper cover on, debaged, white handles, white bowtie on.

Transforms the truck in my opinion.

Those of you waiting to remove your black handles... Get with it. Biggest difference IMHO.

Looks good, but IMO you should get the lower valance painted too.

Thanks for the kind words!!

As far as the lower valence goes, I plan to get an '06 one in black. Then I think it will disappear, and stay consistent top to bottom, front to rear. (Lower valence, tires, step bars, rear bumper, White/black/chrome.)

The bow tie is just wrapped in white vinyl from a sign store.

Looks good...

Did you notice a fitment issue on the rear door handles??

Also, what was the source/price for the front bumper??

The rear handles fit perfectly.

As a Snap-on guy, I worked a deal to get a spare stock bumper cap and spare handles painted and installed... For $200.

If I were in the aftermarket business, I would be making stockish looking bumper covers in white, red, black and paintable. . Make them available for 1500s 2500s. At $3-400.

Hotcakes they would be.

if you made a one-piece bumper with fog lights and cutouts for tow hooks, you would become a rich man


also if you made the big nosed hood for the GMCs like GM made for the chevy HDs in 2001-2002 and are doing now for chevys.....I think that would be awesome
