I got the 20" wheels put on last week. Here's a picture. I like it much better this way. I just need to check out the front suspension and have the truck aligned to get rid of the vibration and steering pull it has now.

Mod #5 & #6: Painted mirror caps and bowtie.
I ran out of work to do last week, so I had a bit of free time and started this project. I sanded the textured plastic mirror caps smooth and painted them and the bowtie to match the truck. Painted mirror caps & door handles were standard on the cladded avalanches that were covered in plastic, but the uncladded ones didnt even have the option of painted mirror caps or door handles until 2005 - I guess someone at GM decided the uncladded ones just didn't have enough plastic on them . I plan to get escalade door handles in the future, since I can get them already painted this color... its just not worth the work to me to try to sand the curved buckets for the door handles. And the chrome pulls on the escalade handles are nice. But, for now the mirrors are the way they should have originally been and the bowtie matches.
Now for pictures:
