Chrome lower & side covers

Post by bstjohn1966 » Thu Mar 01, 2018 10:04 am



Anyone have pics of their 1500 with both the lower side covers and larger side covers replaced with the chrome versions? I'm trying to decide if I like the look or not. My larger side covers are scuffed at the top and not sure if I want to paint or replace.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I am not sure if there is a chrome lower cover (I mean the one with fog light).

For the side covers, I think you mean the ones which cover the battery and fuse box, I have seen someone have used it but it doesn't look nice.

Agreed. I don't care for them. I'll paint. Thanks for the help!

I saw your post in the other thread, and the pictures of the covers.

The ones in the first picture are the engine covers look very nice together with the upper part and I have them.

Wouldn't happen to have a pic of both covers on at the same time would you?

In the picture I added both upper and lower parts are on, actually they are connected with two screws like this.

Gotcha. I was thinking the lower cover like you have installed with a set of the larger covers that go diagonally above and to the rear of the lower cover.

I'm referring to these two covers installed at the same time. I'm trying to see what they look like together:

I like the addon ones that have accents on them. Have seen them on wings and its personal preference kind of thing if it looks good.
