bad news. they don't fit.

the black matte W/T grille was only offered in the 1500 truck. it's a different size. I looked into it a while ago, which sucks, cause it looks ridiculously awesome.

haha yeah I know already brought one (They told be it was for the 2500) but went home needless to say I was disappointed :mad: I just wanted one to paint red to match the truck without having to to buy a chrome one.

that sucks man, sorry to hear they lied to you.

you can pick a stock chromer up on ebay for not too bad.

I think that's the route I'm going to end up going. That's all the chrome I have left to remove.

it's just plastic, should be able to dull it up with some scotchbrite or sandpaper and do some good prep and paint.

Ill do the sanding but im no painter Ive tried it before wasnt anything to be proud of but Ill take a pic of it when Im done. Hopefully the red grille will look good its hard to find pics of red duramax for some odd reason they are almost always black
