While working on my truck this week noticed the satin finish is really bad on the passengers side of the shifter cover piece. If anyone has one for sale let me know Satin finish with automatic. Thanks

Good luck getting your cover off. I pried and pried, got my fingers under the lip of it but it wouldn't give it up. If you do get yours off, check the shifter cable bushing for condition. Some people have had problems with it failing and being stranded.

I think that cover is just sprayed with a coating similar to the front grille bar. Should be able to re-spray it. That is if you ever get it off. Ha! Ha!

If that is the case you might be able to make it polished, depending on the damage.

My cover has a couple spots on the passenger side that are down to the white plastic. I did not notice it till I was down taking out the ash tray to replace it. But we all know once we know there is something wrong we have to fix it.

Like Dave said replace your cable bushing when you get the cover off, I got mine done as a precaution to having it fail down the road. Mechanic said it feel apart in his hand, have an 04 with 32,000 miles so don't think it won't happen to you if you have low mileage.

Pint it

Have it painted to match the console body color.

My truck is black, it needs the silver to keep it from being to much black. My truck is far from low mileage. I think a lot of the common problems have already been upgraded. I know the fan has been, the air dam on the front has been. I hope this weekend I can get under it and look to see if the shifter cable upgrade has been done at the transmission arm. I want to get a good idea of what needs to be done and keep crossing them off the list. Today I swapped the wiper arms to 05 arms.

Lowering it and putting new struts and shocks are also high on the to do list.
