I drive a 2010 Silverado LT with the chrome package. Personally I did not want the package, I told them I wanted a black silverado 4x4 with the 5.3 and thats what my baby came with. I would like to make it look like the Z71 Plus with the black mirror caps and door handles, I would also like the front end to look like the Z71 Plus LTZ with the black grille and black lower grille piece has anyone had experience painting or buying the lower grille piece or putting in new handles and mirror caps?

Agreed, never heard of Z71 plus, my personal opinion is.... FIND A BETTER DEALER! They obviously dont understand their order sheet.

Ive been trying to find the z71 appearance package online for about a month now and the closest thing ive found to it is just the grille color matched to my truck. I havent been able to find any of the other parts as of right now.

Did you powder coat/paint the grille and centre front clip and the rear bumper on your truck? How much could I look at spending to get that done?
