Should I paint my SS vents silver or leave them as is? I plan to put foglights down there too if that makes any difference. My HD hood should be put on this weekend too :head: Anyone need a stock hood and a Tahoe grill? PM me.

Where did you get that bumper from? Is it OEM? Also, I would leave them that color :D

I like the grill inserts, would they fit my 2000 suburban? Is that what you are getting rid of?
No, I just got the inserts put in. That's actually a factory Silverado grill I got from Austin a while back and got the gray part painted. I removed the all chrome Tahoe one. That's what I'm getting rid of.

It looks great, I would leave it as is .. painting it silver would draw too much attention to them, and I think it looks better colormatched.

Im also with cubed on this one...on that color truck, it would look better colormatched...on some black trucks it looks good silver (like intro wheels i believe) but on a dark red truck like that, it looks really good colormatched. Keep it the way it is...and the HD hood is gonna look fuckin awesome

i actually disagree with the colormatched vents. i think that if they were silver they'd tie in better with the chrome of the grille and headlights. but either way, you got a sweet truck and can't wait to see that HD hood.

Yeah, they're kinda the stockers. They're the 03 Signal/folding ones from a Tahoe. I got em painted all one color when the other stuff was being done.

Yeah, they work. I used the folding switch from an 02 Escalade.
