I don't have a High Country but I would imagine it would be the same as my Denali. It's probably ABS plastic grill, I used a pressure washer to remove the chrome. Just need to get an edge started with a razor knife then use the pressure washer to "lift" the chrome off. Pressure washer won't damage the plastic.

how did you get the headlight bezels off? I'm wanting to get everything painted and it'd be a lot cheaper to peel all the chrome off the plastic pieces and the bumper than to buy everything new primered and then have it painted.

It's gonna look sweet! Post pics when it's back together. IMO you need to get the front covered in a clear bra. Since the chrome is still under the paint it will chip off easily

This HC just got to my local dealership yesterday. I had my sales man send me some pictures. I also have the HC Brownstone like this truck and have been very curious to see how the full color matched front end looked. I'll be painting mine.

I just finished doing mine on Sunday! This was before I put the little bars back on the grill. The lightbar looks fogged over but its just the plastic protector that I didnt peel off yet lol





And from the picture you can tell the grill isnt fully snapped in yet, oops lol.


I can get some more pictures and do a write up later on if you're interested.

does that color show dirt bad like a white or black truck does? really like this color
It's not terrible, It shows mud like any truck but i'm not too sure on dirt. I'll take a picture in the morning and show you. It hasn't been washed in a week or so and it's been raining almost every day this week.
