First off Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all of you. This year has had some downs but ended up in more ups for my family and I. My Dad had major surgery and he went thru it fine. At the same time my uncle had emergency surgery that was life threatning and thankfully he is fine now. Our dog got pretty ill and now he is A ok and crazier then ever. I got into a car wreck because a lady t boned me. I was fine but my car was not. I ended up making out and got my new Silverado. I proposed to my girlfriend and she said YES! We are planning a wedding now. And we have a Christmas tree filled with gifts and a roof over our heads. God Bless all and Merry Christmas*****************************************

Back splash guards EASY. Hardest part was taking the wheels off. The front guards biggest PITA ever. None of the holes lined up right. I had to bend and twist them so much i thought I was going to crack the sob's. If I didn't put the bottom body bolt in first it would of been impossible to line up the holes. It was so far off I went online and double checked the part number to make sure that I had the correct ones. These things where ridiculous! They would of been easier to put on if they were blanks with no holes already drilled so I could of made my own. I would expect this trouble from some $10 splash guards off of ebay but these are a GM part for this truck. If you plan on getting any for your NBS truck I would recommend just paying the dealer to put them on and let them screw with it. And it almost looks like they are on wrong because the dont go down low enough to cover the whole tire but from what I have seen pictures of thats just how they are. Plus they are molded so you really can't screw up the install. Only thing I did was over tighten the body bolt on one side and it caused the bottom of the guard to bend out. Just has to loosen it up a bid.
....Thanks for reading my rant about these splash guards from hell...
