Anyone in DFW area change from SS to ZL1 Front Bumper?

I was in an accident last night, It looks like my SS Bumper and Grill will need replaced. I am considering going to the ZL1 Front Bumper and grill, Anybody know of a shop in DFW that can do this? Not sure how this will work with the insurance, any pointers?

Pretty much any Body shop can Paint and install one, but you will need some additional wiring harnesses to get the lights to work. Also the hood lines will have to be adjusted on the new bumper so they can line up. Insurance will pay to replace what you had, you will have to pay whatever the difference the parts cost. They will not care, they will cut a check and you can get whatever you want.....

Insurance will pay to replace with OEM parts and in Texas, the check almost always goes to the repair shop. Yes, it is legal to force a direct pay but it is a hassle and generally not worth it. If it was not your fault, take it to a dealer to repair. Work with your service adviser and let them know what you want to do, they will simply order the ZL1 bumper and charge you the difference along with any associated deductible. Do not forget to ask for a discount on the ZL1 bumper.

I did it myself and ordered from Gary's customs. Really, any body shop should be able to do it...
