i have them on my truck. they came with it. i put the mirrors on however. i believe that they just stick on with double stick tape. i hate them however. they look sweet but thats about it. the passenger door sticks with it all the time. i found ones that are machined out of aluminium. i want to get those. i have the link saved somewhere...

They're pretty easy and just stick on to the factory handles. IMO the painted handles look much better.

I had the Putco brand ones on my black truck and they do just stick on with tape. The were kinda cheesy looking really. I wanted painted. I want some painted white ones for this truck badly.

I have them on mine. They are simple peel and stick.
I prefer the matching paint look to stick on chrome caps but it came with them.
IMO, you don't stick on cheap fake stuff on a truck this caliber. Now I can't get them off without ruining my door handles. Plus my driver door handle sticks all the time because of it too.
I had a GM before and I replaced the entire handles to chrome instead of stick on chrome for that reason. More pricey, but clean and it doesn't "oversize" the look of your handle.
The dealer installed these after they got the truck. I should have slapped them.

JECHT, I have a set that I just pulled off mine including mirror caps if you're interested. I'd sell them cheap.
