    I ordered a set a few days ago. When they come in, I will post some pics and see what the members think. Does anyone on the board have them on their trucks?

    But are the vents on the Escalades functional? I think just the sticky ones will look cheap.

    I installed the Fender Vents on my 2004 Escalade yesterday and decided to post a couple pics. The truck is dirty because of the weather in Florida right now - I will post a few pics later when I can clean the truck:

    We are totally covered with rain today in South Florida and they say tomorrow is going to be the same... The install takes maybe 10 minutes. I used some of the blue painters tape to outline the top & rear of where I was going to put the vents - to make sure everything was level & even. They are peel and stick with 3M tape. I looked at several different brands and these were the most like the ones on the new Escalades. The background of them is black wire mesh, just like the facctory. I really like the way they look on the new Escalades, but I really didn't see me cutting a hole in the side of my truck, so this was the next best option.

    I can only justify so much time and money to spend on a 8 year old truck with 175,000 miles on her LOL. Just trying to Spruce her up a little. If you get right up on it, you can tell that it's not cut into the fender. But for the time and money spent, I think it's a sharp mod. Maybe the rain will stop tomorrow and I can take some pics of a clean truck...
