    Looks good but why not paint your own grill (and other pieces) black instead of ordering them new??

    no scratches and/or loose parts. I dont want to take the chance of breaking or damaging them during removal. Plus while its being painted I dont have to have a jacked up looking truck. Just install the new parts when they are done. I dont mind paying more if its quality.

    Where did you get the new Nav unit programmed? Ebay? Curious about doing this to my 2009.

    grill was on flea-bay and the nav unit came from gmcnav.com. They are pretty proud of their stuff but its was painless to install since I already had nav in my 07. In less than an hour and a half i had replaced the grill, wheels and the nav unit.

    What was the condition of the NAV unit when you received it? I'm very anal about the condition of the item and would like the unit flawless. A little nervous buying something over 1k that is used...

    It was in mint condition. No chips in the paint on the buttons and still a plastic cover on the screen. It makes the factory speakers sound much better btw.

    Here is the vendor I bought it from. Easy install and took 15 mins.

    How are the black platinum rims holding up? Have you thought about putting caddy emblem on the center caps?
