I was pretty surprised to see they did not have one for GMC's given the market....
Why surprised?
Far less Sierra sales vs Silverados....might not be worth the $$ to make up a different die for something that would only sell a few.

WOW!

I'm confused. What do you mean by don’t “support”? Are you saying there are no bumpers for 2019 GMC?
When I go to the RH website- they list pictures and part numbers supposedly for 2019 GMC’s… am I missing something?
thanks for the info!

Man I almost wonder if the bumper made it worse...I work in a body shop and I've never seen a deer hit fold up the front end of a truck like that
