    There are several members on here with carbon fiber pieces for the Silverado, and they are extremely nice fit and finish pieces for the engine. That cover shown looks like it's for the Silverado, I don't know if that's also what the suburban one looks like or not but I bet you could use one from a Silverado from 2004-2007 classic and it would fit. I only know of one company that makes them, otherwise a lot of people are talented enough to actually grind down the high spots and cover it with carbon fiber and make it look like that. I would bet that is a home made piece, but a beautiful job whoever did it.

    Hmm... that's pretty bad ass. I thought CF was just a sport compact thing.

    I might have to snatch me up some CF pieces.

    Default I googled Carbon Fiber for silverado the other day,

    I was wondering if anyone else noticed the price! Carbon fiber is sweet but way out of my league, I rather spend that kind of money on performance rather than a cover that nobody will see!

    Maybe we can organize a group buy and see if we can get a deal from the seller.
