    I have the covers. I really wanted to get the real deal, but with price in mind I settled. I am happy w/ the covers. I actually salvaged these off of my totaled '03 silverado and put them on my '07. They aren't showing any signs of wear. No cracking, chipping, flaking, etc. They look fine to me, but the real deal is always nice if you don't mind spending a bit more

    i would suspect so but call your dealer that you bought your truck from and make sure you let them know you just bought it and sometimes they will cut you deal

    Bought a set of covers from ebay, worked just fine. Always wanted to just color match them to the body though so it was a temporary fix for me, but for the price ebay covers can't be beat.

    get the metal ones....the plastic ones scratch and the oils from your hands will eventually
    Make them look funny over time.
