What are some common replacement exterior parts and truck accessories?

The GMC Sierra 1500 has a reputation as a classy but capable work truck. The GMC Sierra 1500 draws a customer looking for a more high-end trim and finishing touches than your average pickup.

Here is a list of some of the more common replacements and upgrades for the GMC Sierra 1500.

  • Bumpers: while OEM replacement bumpers are a commonly needed part, there are some examples of upgrade bumpers that increase functionality and styling.
  • Grilles: OEM grille replacement kits are the most common, but there are some aftermarket options that are geared toward customization to varying degrees.
  • Mirrors: whether replacing a single damaged OEM unit or upgrading to aftermarket for towing or an enhanced look, these units are quick and easy replacements.

Are Sierra exterior parts and accessories easy to install?

As with most pickup trucks, the GMC Sierra 1500 is designed to endure rough handling and harsh conditions. Therefore, many of the exterior parts, particularly the more vulnerable ones, are designed to be quickly removed and installed on the vehicle. Things like grilles, bumpers, and mirrors are typically secured with few fasteners and clips, so they may be removed and installed relatively easily. The standard ground clearance of a GMC Sierra means these components can be pulled without needing to raise the truck or remove other parts. Even electrical parts and accessories like mirrors connect with keyed, easy to engage wire harnesses.

Are these common replacements and upgrades reversible?

The vast majority of GMC replacement and upgrade truck accessories utilize existing mounting holes and even hardware in some cases. This practice makes the installation of the majority of upgrade and replacement parts completely reversible if necessary. The GMC Sierra 1500 is a truck ready to perform whether stock from the factory or with upgrades.
