I love mine from TwistedWrenchGrills, but I have a strong recommendation. Before you go to the bathroom and pee or brush your teeth, take it to the nearest film shop and have 'Invisible Bra' material applied to all surface sections, e.g., crossbar and surrounds.'
Thanks for the heads-up!

I actually had PPF/Clear Bra done from bumper to A-Pillars before I made the grille swap. The trim pieces were re-used so are still protected, but not the new crossbar piece and surrounds. I figured I'd get around to having the new surfaces done eventually. Well it sounds like sooner is better than later.

Yeah, that whole '...done eventually' is what bit me in the a**. :(
Like you, I had quite a bit of my SS covered with 'Invisible Bra' soon after I purchased the SS back in 2017. I guess I just took too much for granted with the new grill. My MS has been acting up, so when I finally looked more closely at the grill, it was too late.

Well I took care of it. I had the guys who did the original clearbra work do the grill. They said it was a big PITA because of all the angles/surfaces, but they got it done and did not charge me an arm and a leg. I can breathe easier now knowing it's protected.

Thanks for the heads-up on that!

My local shop ordered the Kooks with cats for me a few months ago.

They were supposed to be here next week. Now I'm being told October. 🤬:poop:

Time to inspect valve train soon. I ordered billet rocker stands, and a notch longer push rods. Running Comp 1.8 Ultra Pro Magnum rockers with minimum preload for 4 years now. Want to see if adding .025 will quiet things down a bit under there before I install LT's. And since I was $2.00 under free shipping I threw in a set of front end links, lol. Can never be to prepared, next month more ammo.

Any benefit of the TFS one over a regular LS2 OEM one?
Is that one like the LS2? If so, I’d say nah, just didn’t feel like searching past what I knew I was looking for.

If it’s like the LS2 is like the LS3 one, I broke a couple and ain’t interested in continuing on that trend lol.

I’ve never had an LS2, only a couple 1s, 3 and 5.3 iron truck

To go with my Mighty Mouse catch can - since it doesn’t use the valley cover PCV port.

I stumbled across this set before the COVID price increase.

This Whiteline (BHR95) 27mm solid steel Rear Sway Bar arrived on 3 September 2021. It's a hefty 22-ish pound bar. The kit came in a factory WL plastic bag wrapped in foam, stuffed in a doubled-sealed cardboard box.

The bushings are rubber, and the brackets are heavy gauge steel and appear to be zinc plated. The bar is painted metallic silver, albeit a few nicks. I can't tell if it's powder-coated, but it will be. You also get a sheet of bling' stickers for those that like that sort of thing'. Overall, I'm impressed with the heavy build, mounting hardware, packaging, and shipping.

I typically prefer driving in 'Track' mode whenever practical because I like the increased lateral stability in the curves. Hopefully, this bar will fit well, reduce body roll, and not unleash any negative surprises. 🤞

Nothing out of the ordinary .. Factory forged wheels. Looking for a set of tires. 😎

ATI Harmonic Balancer and ARP bolt
GM valve cover gaskets and cabin air filter
Spare tire jack kit
The other boxes are full of various hoses and other items .. 🤔

Still looking for a trunion upgrade / or shaft mounted rocker assembly.
