Can you post some before and after of your wheels and grill/bumper?
What part did you wrap?
You painted a white bumper white?

Haven’t updated here for some time. Only a couple things done since last update. Changed out my antenna for a Ronin 50. Cal, super nice quality to these. Also finally had my new rear bumper painted and installed last week.
ImageImageNext will be a tune, I have my Blackbear EF live set up from my 2013 that I’ll reuse and have Justin do a custom tune soon.

Haven’t really done much to the truck lately other then just drive it. Just rolled 10,000 miles since buying last July. I did finally get around to painting and installing the engine cover. That and the Air raid tube cleaned up the look under the hood.

Next thing I did was I picked up a High Country grille. Plan was to have my front bumper wrapped in white vinyl and possibly rear also. I haven't gotten around to that yet but it will probably happen later.

Nice wheels


I just ran acrossed these wheels the other day and was drooling. I really wish I would have went with hostile wheels. I'm guessing they'll hold up better than my black rhinos too.

Bugs me how GM doesn't include these when you buy the upper end model trucks.



Ok you basically did all the stuff to your truck that I wanted to do. HAHA! All the mods look great. I've made peace with my chrome bumpers though. If I dechromed it, all of it would go but the headlight trim is near impossible to do and I really don't want to wrap anything. How did you go about your engine cover and doing the summit white antenna. Also what did you do with those old hostile wheels?

Ok, for the engine cover you need GM (12643295) caddie engine cover, it will come painted silver with the cadilac emblem, you need GM (12620295) Chevrolet emblem. Peel off the caddie emblem paint it how you want and install the chevy emblem. I ordered some 6.2 emblems from amazon that I put on mine.
The XM antenna I just went to the dealership and they had two Summit white ones in stock from a Tahoe or Suburban, just swapped my black one out.
If you mean the milled black Hostile Rages, I sold those locally this Summer.

Huh I didn’t realize you could swap them or they even existed. How was the install?

It's a pretty easy swap, just have to drop the headliner on the drivers side so you can reach in there and loosen the 10mm nut that secures it. Put a bead of silicone around the opening in the roof just to assure a good seal.
Oh and on the engine cover, you should have two studs on your intake manifold that the cover snaps into. If not then you need to order 2 of those also, GM (11611691). They were on my 6.2 so I didn't need them.
