Thought I'd update this with the mods I've done since I started this thread.

I had the headrests embroidered with the ZR2 logo by 42 Stitches. Jim is very reasonable and you can't beat his turnaround time.

I also did four light mods from Boost Auto Parts.
I did their Auto Fog Light Mod, All Lights Mod (6 High Mod), Dual Function (Third Brake Light Bed Cargo & Reverse) Wiring Harness and High Beam to Spot Mirror Mod All these mods were super easy to install and keep the auto high beam feature functional.

I installed the AutoStop Eliminator and no longer have to remember to turn the "feature" off everytime I start the truck.

I've added the Kicker 46CXARCT Wired Remote Base controller to the Kicker sub. Someone had posted that if you add this controller and set the two dip switches on the amp to the same as all the others you can better control the the sub's bass.

And last, for now anyway, I installed theOCDplug.com infotainment screen protector.

Again, you've made me spend money. Love the lighting options and appreciate the hyper links.

As a side, the "infotainment screen protector" hyper link is actually the Autostop Eliminator hyper link.

thanks for the info and ideas!

Added blacked out OEM ZR2 emblems and black with red background 6.2L emblems. I'll be adding the black Silverado to the tailgate and probably use plastidip on the bow tie.

Do the black oem emblems come with the red in the "2"? The stock Gm pics show them completely blacked out. I like them with the red better.

Unfortunately, no. I removed the red 2 from the original emblems. I removed the 3m tape from the back side and used a small straight slot screwdriver to gently push the tabs through. I used small amount of silicone to keep the red 2 in the new black emblem.

Finally got around to the front emblem. I used red reflective tape to make the 2 red. There are no clips holding it on, just 3m tape. There are two posts on the back to help with placement. Now to platsi dip the bow ties.

Finally got around to installing my ARB compressor. I wanted to mount it under the hood like the one on my wife's Jeep. I just couldn't find a place that I liked. Then it hit me, but it by the jack and utilize what was left of the under seat storage bin. I use the one on the Jeep when we air down the tires if needed while on the beach.

What color are you painting your front emblem?
It's already done, I posted it in another thread. I color matched it to the truck. Also did the emblem that I took off the tailgate and stuck it to a blank license plate.
