I was told by the parts guy at my dealership that they can order parts unique to a specific truck using a VIN for reference. Three possibilities here:
1) I found a window sticker on line for a truck in Wickenburg, AZ. It is VIN# 1GCES14H96B121970 that lists the bright chrome option. Use this vin for ordering parts.
2) Les Stanford had 5 Brickyard driver's cars that they were selling. You might get a vin from them on one of theirs, since they were built this summer and should be in the parts system by now. You can contact Chris Warren by e-mail at [email protected] or call 1-313-724-1417
3) You could get Mason57 to send you his VIN for a reference number to give to the parts department. He has the Tony Stewart parade truck from the Brickyard group.
If this works, we will all benefit from your lead...... Please keep us posted.
You could go to GMbuypower.com or Chevrolet.com and start your own search. Act as if you are specking out an '06 with the 6 speed and look at the inventories in an area. You will have to find each 6 speed and then look at the window sticker on line. The vin is on the on-line window sticker, as well as the list of options.
The other choice would be to contact your friendly salesman and have him look through the "BARS" system for a six speed with the chrome option and get you a vin.....
Did you spring for it? If so, please keep us informed when the hardware comes...... The RPO accessory has an MSRP sticker pricce of exactly $1000. I think it must include all the dash and console bits also.
The current kit you can buy from GM is the exterior trim pieces only. The interior kit won't be availble for some time yet. That means that part by part is probably the only way you will be able to get it.
I've been debating dropping that cash on it myself. I have the chrome wheels, and it's kinda odd having all that satin trim with chrome wheels. Too bad they don't offer chrome running boards. :cool
