    Default 08 Red Silverado Grill Trade

    New to this forum, so if there is another location for this to be posted, mods please feel free to move it (not looking to step on toes). I couldnt post it in the classifieds as I dont have enough posts apparently (and I dont want to make a bunch of useless posts just to increase my post numbers).
    I have a new 08 Silverado 1500 with the chrome grill. I hate chrome. I really want the LBZ red grill. If you have the red grill and want chrome, I''ll trade you. I''ll ship you mine, and send a label for sending the red back to me. I really dont want to try painting this thing. Body shop isnt interested because of how tight it is between the grill and the shell (for sanding).
    As far as that goes - if you have the red handles and mirror caps and want chrome, I''ll trade you AND send you a chrome handle kit (my handles are black).
    Here is a photo of my truck before we did the rear leveling drop kit and dual exhaust:
    If you''re interested please let me know. 877-609-6727 or
    Hope to be a benificial member of this forum! Thanks guys!

    Woohoo! Body shop I deal with called today. They have a customer with a black LTZ that wants the chrome grill and front bumper. I'm trading him, getting him back on the road and having the black pieces painted red. We'll see how this works out. I'm geeked. Now I just need the handles and mirror caps. One step closer to having the truck done.

    Congrats on your find. I love your truck and you should share more pics with your new grill when you get it installed.

    Yeah, I've been emailing with that guy - He's offered me the handles, mirror caps and tailgate handle for around $340. I'll probably will go that route. I painted the handles on my last silverado and then after some dink broke into it and smashed the handles, I bought the GM Tahoe handels that were already painted - I liked the smooth texture better. Petty yes, but if its going to cost me the same to paint them...might as well.
    I hate winter though...22's came off yesterday and will be dropped off with the truck at the body shop. Painting the lip red. Probably will toss a brushguard on the front for "winter mode". Gotta have it stand out since its a "display vehicle".
