Got my ‘23 Silverado ZR2 a couple of weeks back and have done a few easy mods.

-Tinted driver/passenger and front windows
-PPF on front, lights and bumper
-Added high clearance running boards
-Tri-fold tonneau cover
-B&W stow away hitch
-Bow tie puddle lamps
-LED backup and license plate bulbs
-Aeroskin Hood Protector in Smoke Black by LUND

-My favorite mod is the color match wrap on the front skid plate. Had it covered in PPF. Yes, I understand that this is a skid plate. I only covered the front piece and don’t plan on any crawling in this truck. The wrap can be replaced if it gets damaged. I think it makes a huge difference in the look of the front end.

Looks great! I don't like the oddly colored gray color that doesn't seem to match anything else on the truck.

I was considering the same thing with a bronze color to match my wheels. Also planning on doing my hood cowling and the two bars in the grill above and below the flowtie!
 
Ohhh. That’s sounds cool! That would be a nice match. I’ve tried to add some red accents (back window decal and hitch chain connectors) to tie the red together slightly. I like seeing people make it their own.

You may want to check out this little red gadget. It's practical for off roading and looks kinda cool too.


It will stick out enough to get in the way of the multiflex tailgate, so be careful dropping it down.

WOW...only $189 :ROFLMAO:
 
It's only another $75 for the matching d-ring.....LOL


Sort of like paying $25 for plastic bed cap hole inserts, $60 for black 7 spline lug nuts, $165 for aluminum pedal covers, $150 for tailgate lights.......etc......it never ends!

I think I'll just get two of each.....
 
I checked with a couple wrap places and none of them had anything to match my bronze wheels. They said they could color match, but it would be a multi step process and it seemed like a hassle.

I may just do black on that lower gray panel and do the flowtie in black and call it a day.
 
I’ve seen one done in black (on a black ZR2) on a FB forum I follow. It looked sharp.

Send a pic if you do. That's the route I'd like to go. Black skid plate with a black flow tie.

Not my picture. Came from Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 Facebook page. This is the one painted black. I don’t know more about it other than what was posted. Not a black flow tie though.

That sells me for sure!

I got underneath there yesterday and it looks pretty easy to remove that plate if you drop the skid plate behind it.

The flowtie can be removed too.

It would be easy to drop parts off for paint and still drive the truck.

Let us know how that goes. My wrap was done on the vehicle. Curious what it takes to remove/install.

Not sure if I mentioned, but the wrap is KPMF gloss Titiainium blue.
