Posted this on the parts/accessories forum too.

I just got a 2008 galaxy black Titan king cab. I was wanting to do a few exterior mods:

1 Chrome door handle covers
2 Chrome rear view mirror covers (on the regular style mirrors..not the kind that stick way out)
3 Chrome window sills
4 Chrome fog lamp covers (don't have fog lamps)
5 And I am 50/50 on getting a 3 piece Billet (or Billet Style grill with horizontal bars). I want to keep the Nissan logo. I just want the kind where I dont have to remove anything from my truck...the kind that simple bolt or snap in place.

Pretty much all the sites I look at list stuff for 04-07 models. I know the grill of an 08 is different slightly than an 04-07. But what about the other stuff? Will the #'1-4 listed above for 04-07 models work on an 08?

Where can I buy this stuff? I would prefer to not buy online so I can see the part in person and can see exactly what I am getting before I pay. I will buy from a website if I have no other choice.

Generally, if there is something I might want to know, please tell me (bad experiences, what not to do when installing, what brands to avoid, etc.)

Thanks

#3 is a pain in the azz they don't stick right because its not bent enough to fit formally to the sill. mine kept lifting at the ends so i took them off.
if you get the chrome mirrors get the covers not the 3M sticky crap. with the OE covers you actually remove the black piece and replace with chrome.

Sorry, didn't get all of that. What is an OE cover? Can you discuss that in more detail? I thought all of them (regardless of brand) came with the 3M sticky stuff (or something like it). If I order from mynissanparts.com, are the ones on there any good? What about the door handle covers? Better yet, where is the BEST place to get this stuff? I live in Waco, TX. I would like to not have to buy online unless I have no other choice. I already checked the local Nissan dealership here and they don't carry anything like what I want. I would like to see what I am getting in person if possible. BTW, I have the regular mirrors, NOT the tow mirrors. I want a cover, I don't wana take anything off my truck.

What is your opinion on the door handle covers?

I think I'll steer clear of the window sill stuff for now since you mentioned that.

Also, the person above confirmed it, but do the side mirror covers and door handle covers fit an 08 even though the website says 04-07?

Thanks
