I HAVE BEEN A MEMBER OF THE FORUM FOR A LITTLE WHILE NOW BUT REALLY DIDN'T HAVE MANY XTRAS TO TALK ABOUT. NOW THANKS TO THE MANY TOPICS AND DIFFERENT POSTS I HAVE READ I AM NOW STARTING TO CUSTOMIZE THE LADE. THE INPUT OF EVERYONE ON THIS BOARD HAS REALLY BEEN HELPFUL IN MAKING DECISIONS ON MY UPGRADES. JUST WANTED TO SAY THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR MAKING THIS FORUM A GREAT SOURCE OF INFORMATION!!!!!!:thumbsup:

I Got The Grill From Gmpartsdirect.com. The Price Was $269.53 And I Didn't Have To Paint It Because The Platinum Edition Comes In The Color Of My Truck. Its A Five Minute Instalation That You Can Do Yourself.

Do you have the part # for the grill.
Maybe it's me or my browser but I can't seem to find anything on the Gmpartsdirect without a part # ..
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the compliments!

Yeah its a rear view camera, I have it mounted above the brake light. I have it hooked to the Avic N1. I know there are many mixed reviews about the Avic but I have had it for about 4 months with no problems so far(knock on wood!!!) and I love it. I have attached a couple of pics, they're not the best quality but I will take more later today.

I got em from PHATBOYKUSTOMZ.com, Andrew really is the best. The Dub Big Homies are on back order for about 30 days, at the earliest. I gave him a call and he got em for me in 6 days!! With tires(perelli 305/35/ZR24) , locks, lugnuts, mounting and balancing, and shipped to my door, the total was $4975. Best price I found and I didn't have to wait as long as the others.

The part number for the grille in SILVER is 12336042. Remember this is only for the SILVER grille. If you have another color it will be a different number.

This is the part number that you ordered?? I thought our color was called Sandstone or something like that??

I think that is the name of the color. But the grill with that part number matches the color perfectly.:coolgleam It says silver but it matches the sandstone.
