I’m glad you’re happy sir. If I’m back and need service Ill definitely stop in and see them, although I’m well aware of the traffic on Memorial and try to avoid it. Congrats on your reunion!!!!!!

Mine came together with the car uninstalled(dealer wanted $50 to install) so, I installed it with my own rivet gun and used the supplied rivets.

Just have to mount it super-straight and thats it.

Preach, are you from Brooklyn ?

The bracket is supposed to match the color of your truck.

Got any links for a white one? I'm trying to look for one!

Edit: I think that bronze color is now my favorite. Looks beautiful!

PreachRR that is the sharpest escalade I think I've ever seen. It looks beautiful. What do you have on it for tires & rims? They really look nice. I have to get new tires and rims and not sure which way to go. So glad to have found this forum. There is so much great info here. I'm just loving the color of your escalade. It looks so classy.

Thanks all for the great comments about the truck. The rims are 22" Zinik z14 ferrars tires are khumo 305 40 22. I would not go with this combo and at some point I will be replacing them. These wheels are super heavy and the chrome is pitting. Also the khumos make a lot of road noise. But thanks again for the comments one thing I can say is that after spending a lot of time at a dealer with what looks like 20 to 30 escalades. The pin stripe really makes a difference. Almost none the dealers escalades had the stripe and they all looked like they were unfinished from a repair and because of no stripe it seemed like something was missing. But that is just my. .02

@Punmax This is actually the first one I've seen with a painted brackets, every Escalade on the road and at the dealerships I've seen have the black unpainted ones. Looks good!
