    Not meaning to be an ass, but I gotta say it's a little too much chrome IMO. I think it would look pretty bad ass color matched though!

    Oh. I wasn't expecting that when I opened this thread. Good choice on the tows, but the chrome covers look nothing short of terrible.

    Thanks for the input but after all it is MY truck and it is all about what individuals like. I no longer go on GMFS because everyone on there thinks a stripped down all blacked out truck is what EVERYONE should drive. I say to each his own. My Momma always told me "if you don't have nothing nice to say then keep you mouth closed." That is just MY opinion!!!!!!!. Thank you to all that had positive feedback. You will NEVER see me say anything negative about your rides. Thats a promise!!!

    I hope you're not peeved that I chose to use my right to express my opinion. I never said you should black out your truck. If you can't take a little constructive criticism than maybe you shouldn't post pictures of your mods. Not everybody is going to be a kiss ass and say what you want to hear. The beauty of it is that you can take it or leave it at your own discretion.

    And please, if you don't like something that I do to my truck, tell me (hence why I post pictures on an OPEN WEB FORUM: To get both POSITIVE and NEGATIVE feedback). Don't just tell me what you think I want to hear. ;)

    Nice addition. I personally tend to like the red/chrome combo, so I like the chrome caps too... I just wish there was a company that made those chrome mirror covers to just cover the top half of the mirror like Ford has on their tow mirrors. I personally think that would be a top-notch combination for your truck.

    I eventually want to get a set of tow mirrors for my Avalanche.

    EDIT - I just noticed your hood ornament. That's cool!
