    Should I leave it all blue or add the chrome cover to match the new Escalade handles, help me decide! I like it both ways so maybe you guys can help. I have it on right now to see if I like it in the long term.

    I would say and vote for going with a Billet Finger Grip Tailgate Handle, which is what I have, and as you mentioned Adam, going with billet handle will match/tie-in with the Escalade Door Handles.

    I think it looks sharp with all the handles matching.

    I would also go with the chrome for the handle. I like the look of everything matching. When I do the escalade handles on mine, I will get the chrome tailgate handle and pull off the big chunky avalanche bezel to paint it.

    I like it better blue... Although it does make sense to go with chrome... After looking again, it does look better chrome! :neutral:

    I think it looks sharp in blue, but will it hold up without scratching if used?

    So chrome handle it is...This came yesterday, a chromed full replacement handle, just switched them out this morning. There isn't much difference visually but the Putco cover did make the handle protrude a little more, and the fact that it is all one piece makes it less cheesy. I like it.
