    Post Column Shift Lever Swap to Chrome 2006 Chevy Silverado truck

    I was wondering if anyone has swap stock Shift Lever to chrome aftermarket one, I found headlight knob, Shift Lever, Tilt Lever all in chrome and it looks pretty cool to dress up the inside of my Silverado just was wondering if anyone done this much work with their's and what all needs to be taken off to get to these parts I haven't took a look at the dash to see yet figure I would ask get little heads up on what to do or things to maybe look out to not mess anything up while doing this project.

    Sweet Thanks I'm sure it's simple and pretty easy to do, I like getting how to with pictures so I know what all needs come off to get the job done faster and shortest work.

    Your Welcome, its not hard, just take your time......when I Swapped out the Column Shifter on my truck, Installed a Escalade Column Shifter, which has a Leather Wrapped Handle, and it has a Nice Chrome End Cap, and the Tow/Haul Button.

    that dose sound pretty nice I bet it looks good. I also been trying figure out what people used to make their dash cover look glossy like.

    From what I know, to get that Glossy finished look on the Dash Surrounds, is A Lot of Sanding/Wet Sanding....before they're painted.
