I used DupliColor spray, similar to Plastidip but has just the right amount of gloss.Looks really good. I've been thinking of those for mine as well. There isn't any chrome anywhere else really, so they stand out.
Two questions -
1. Where did you find the tailgate "Sierra" badge in black?
2. How did you blackout the trim around the "GMC" emblems?
You are correct Dave, clear only when not flexing the gate.Just a note here to be careful the first time you lover the tailgate steps the first time AND stand on them. The receiver hitch cover MAY foul with the bottom of the tailgate step!
Looks good with the black emblems especially on your red truck!!
Not in the new font that is on the 2020 that I could findTo the OP, looks great much better
The raised Sierra lettering can be found on Ebay too... painted ready to install if you don't want to paint your own...
I pulled the chrome on mine and went w vinyl instead... this was on a 1500
