    It was definitely modified, but it was done. Do a search my friend...

    I don't make this crap up.

    There's a kid on TYF who's been repeatedly banned for posting nonsense about other peoples' eskys with premium bumpers and claiming them as his own.

    He did post pic of a Tahoe that did the conversion and kept the spare. Of course the main problem with it is that the exhaust pipe is so close to the spare that it either ignite it or melt it rendering it useless. The other problem is that the premium bumper does not have a hoist access point, so unless you're prepared to drill in a new premium bumper to create one the spare becomes moot. Also, the hitch cover width is narrower, so to drill a hoist access hidden behind it you'd also have to modify the hoist access tube itself to re-angle it in a location inside the hitch cover.

    Is it possible? Yes.

    Is it practical or even advisable? Not really.

    A lot easier to get a emergency tire kit like the hybrids and the stock dual exhaust eskys come with.

    ----------

    Yup that's the one.

    You can't get it that way from the factory. I don't know why they call themselves the standard of the world when they don't even have as an option what the competition has standard. Full sized spare under the floor with dual exhaust 2013 GL450

    ^^^ You are correct sir. All you have to give up is HP, torque, towing capacity, and presence.

    Baggedlvintegra,

    What is the name of black vinyl product you put on the window chrome? Do you apply it yourself?

    Thanks!

    texas1...Yes, once I get the color refined to 100% match I'm going to do the fender vents, door molding and rear lift gate applique like the 2012 Premiums

    Carneros Red...It's just a roll of gloss black vinyl, you can get it from several places but I just order it from http://www.bmwshadowline.com/shadowlinevinyls.html because that is where I always got it when I did my BMWs. You'll need the 3" Gloss Black Vinyl Roll. You will honestly maybe use like an 1/8th of the whole roll but atleast you have some as backup.

    All you need is the platinum hood and lights to complete the "clone" look for exterior
