    Well, my fuel door on my truck has started to rust through- looks like hell, so I would like to replace it. Has anyone ever done it? What steps are required? How long does it usually take?
    Anyone know where I can get one for a good price?
    Thanks,
    Matt

    Will it fit?

    I tried putting on a chrome one and hated how it looked. I'm having a heck of a time finding one short of spending $95 at the dealer.

    Does anyone know if one off a NBS truck will fir my truck?

    Will one off of a 2002 GMC 1500 step side fit my truck?

    Step side I don't know about but any NBS truck will work considering your truck is a NBS. You might want to double check your warranty. I want to say the warranty on body rust is like 100K/10years or something like that. I could be way off but I vegley remember a guy at the dealership telling me that.

    I agree but if not post a wanted add on DP or some other truck sites because I can guaruntee there are plenty off fuel doors sitting in people's garages that put chrome ones on.
