Well shaving your handles is a lot more work and money, but a nice custom look. I personally like color-matched handles. I think it gives it a nice even, smooth look. I don't really dig the chrome on the handle.

Well the chrome on the Escalade handles would look good with your rims, but if you have the time and money I say shave them. :imo

Escalade handle, shaving would be big money after you get the paint and body work and then the electric solenoid kit.

Here's my escalade handle


And go ahead and paint your rear handle too or order the GMC C3 handle

escalade handles... i think it looks silly to have shaved handles on a prety much stock truck :read: And for them to really be worth it for me, u'd have to have a pretty wild paint job that would be interupted by having a handle there.

I personally think the Escalade handles would look great on your truck.

BTW...if you order the C3 handles, it will be rough and textured. I had my handle and bezel painted and smoothed for $60. Cheaper than buying from GM and personally I think it looks better.
