    Default NBS badges on OBS???

    I work at a resort down in the keys and drive a 2WD 06 "CHEVY" Silverado 5.3... theres this guy staying here with the same exact truck but the Z71 4x4.. my question is how the hell did his come with the NBS "LT" badges (the chrome looking ones that are just the letters) while mine came with the black vinyl type LT badges.. again their the same thing except mine is 2wd and his is 4.. same charcoal grey leather interior.. crew cab, center console the whole 9.. im the orig owner as is he with his 4x4..


    any thoughts as to why "CHEVY" (not Chev-row-lay haha) would do this? and how do I get those!? id like to incorporate my stormbreaker look though.. thanks guys!

    EDIT ah i see what you mean, as in having the dealer remove those and then put on the nbs... he didnt mention that so i think thats not the case... and i meant the badges on the rear pillars on the cab where it meets the bed.. right about eye level. the black rubber/plastic ones i have now are about an inch by an inch.. ugly black with goldish "LT" ugh

    no sir... he has had the truck since it got to his local dealership back in 06.. he bought it brand spankin' new as did I.. and yes, the NBS badges are so much better.. his is white as is mine, like i said, only difference is his is 4x4.. i have more custom paint work as however as im 19 and hes.. well lets say he could be my grandfather haha..
    i was comparing the two and thinking if i could get my hands on the NBS badges and paint them black to match my white/black theme, that would be sick.


    where did u get your badges and how much??

    all else fails, i might take a visit to the dealer and perform some surgery on some nbs

    The small badges for the rear pillars aren't too pricey from the dealer. I bought the G.M. "chicklet" badges and added them to my truck.

    Adam,
    first off, I love what youve done with your truck, and second, yes I would love those, but not in that spot, as I would like to have the nbs 'LT' badge in that place. but yes i cannot stand the vinyl lookin ones
