    Yup, part #63330

    Just call a dealer and tell them you need 2 "1/2 bolts with the bars on them. Theres several different part #'s for them, some for each make of truck. Some are just longer than others so just cut off the extra.

    These are the easiest mounts to install. I can have a set on in about 15-20 mins, no bolt bars and without having to cut the valance ;)

    get a good 5/8" drill bit. i dont know how the chevys are but when i installed mine on my ford, i bought a dewalt pilot point bit for $20. well worth the money for good drill bits. i took my bumper off and grill.. much easier to install.

    Not on a 1500 you cant you must be thinking of a 2500 or 3500.

    I was thinking the same thing. How can you install them without cutting the valance, beside just taking it off of course?
