Installed 2 ss tips from Wallyworld ($10/ea.) in '13 on my '13 LT. A few months later found 6 more ss tips in Wallyworld's clearance aisle for $5/ea. and installed 2 on my '12 LT and 2 last year on my son's '16 LT Limited. All 3 sets still look good! It's been 6 yrs. for the '12/'13.

Super glad that worked out for you. I have had hit-and-miss luck with so-called stainless steel tips at National retailers. They look good for a little bit and then they start to rust despite the stainless steel claims.

We mustn't forget the shackles on the rear end to ensure all that extra horsepower gets put to good use !

If your socket set is all the same brand, you might be a city slicker.

Mine are actually welded on....as you can see they don't stick out very far.
