    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.

    I looked at the pics of your truck and gave me the idea to throw chrome mirror covers on there, my westin step and the strip are chrome so i'm not going to chrome the door handles. I'm leaning towards the mirror covers and the tailgate lever

    I like it! I agree the actual chrome handle is less cheesy, even if people would never notice the difference.

    Every time I look at this thread it makes me want my escalade handles more. Annnd, that makes me want my truck back. It's in the shop this week.
