NEW Door Handles OR Door Handle Covers?

I am torn over this.

My delemna is do I get the complete handle set, or just the covers? The covers are REAL Stainless, and the Handles are ABS, which makes the decision more difficult! Anyone have experience with either, or both?

I provided Links below to see the difference:

New Handles

Handle Covers

I guess you should see the truck as well:

the Big Girl

I have never been much of a Chrome person. Personally I like the CLEAN streetrod monocolor look. BUT, "the Big Girl" came with a Chrome appearance package, and I have started to like the Chrome look on her!

Your already killin me in the ROTM, you don't need to make your truck any sweeter Rob.
J/K I'd prolly go with the new ones. Just something about stickin things on with tape does'nt appeal to me.

Robert, Personally I don't care for them too much, but on your truck with the chrome package, I'm surprised they aren't part of the package... Anyway, go with the ABS replacements. I've seen the stainless replacements for as much as $300 per set, but either way you go, it looks like those are fantastic prices! My

ABS is plastic. Probably close to the stock handles with a Chrome finish.
