I was really nervous about the paint matching but Eagle Collision in madison, Al did an amazing job on it. They was also able to get a 06 suburban ltz black valance for it as well as hanging new lights. Wheels are oe wheel cv91a reps (20" Wheel for Chevy Silverado Rim HD CV91A 20x8.5 Polished Wheel)

Camper mirrors is what this truck had. I didnt like the accordion looking rubber they have. Ill probably colormatch these tows eventually
Those accordion mirrors were the worst looking mirrors gm has made. With the new 2020 hd mirrors a close second.

Wtf those are the ugliest mirrors for this body style
I didn't say shit about looks, I said they work the best for towing and blind spots. I tow almost every day and those were my favorite. I switched to the newer style on my 02 3500 after the camper style wore out after 15yrs, and you see more with the camper style. My 19 2500 is the worst for sight lines with the larger mirror frames and the gargantuan a pillar.

I have the extendable mirrors and honestly I don't like them for towing or even just regular driving. The passenger mirror doesn't seem to have any curve so it leaves a huge blindspot.

I'll probably swap them out for the regular factory mirrors when I get a chance
