My understanding is that the actually tank is up in there and what you see hanging down is just the cover with insulation. I never removed one that's just what I came across when I had my Duramax and was doing a little reading.

Cool bit of info. Maybe just a goofy looking design.

id be interested to see someone photoshop (correctly) the front bumper painted to match the truck.
Vinyl wrap wouldn't be that expensive at all i bet for it. then it would look like a LTZ z71

I'm thinking about pulling off the plasti-dip in the front, and leaving it chrome, and leaving the bow tie black.

What do you guys think?

Either way this is a sick looking truck. Doesn't help that a lot of what you're doing Id also want to do. How are the 35s clearing on the level you currently have? Any rubbing? One of my bosses has a 2013 and he had to do some cutting and grinding to get his 35s to fit on his 2.5 inch fabtech. I don't know the wheel offset but if you can get them to fit without rub that is amazing. And the brown makes it unique but in a very good way! Lovin the truck! What side steps did you put on, they look a lot like the ones I have but the angle is throwing me off?

I will agree with some of the other comments, while the chrome is not you, the black almost looks like a WT model... Hate to say it since I'm a fan of the blacked out look on these rigs. But the chromed accents can sometimes give the truck some needed flair, partially why I left my gril area chrome still. I'd pull it off.

Took off the plasti-dip piece by piece, and I decided to leave it like this maybe for a bit, what do you guys think?

While it looks like half a work truck, I think it's a different style. And the way it accents the front end and gives it an aggressive look I think!
