See post 1263 in this forum for some more info and a link on how to improve the sound of what you already have paid for. If you want to spend a little, read the rest of the posts on http://www.delphi.com/n/mb/message.asp?webtag=GMSUV&msg=150.101 to see how others have added amps, subs, etc...all with certain costs (ie: loss of On-Star, loss of rear seat audio, loss of $$$).
I also wouldn't complain too loudly about not getting the Trailblazer Bose stereo. Chances are that this is the same Delco radio with a "Bose" sticker that GM has used for years in Buicks and Oldsmobiles (Chrysler also used this in there Town and Country vans). Although they do offer a little better sound, they are still made of the same cheap components as the rest of your stereo - cheap paper cones, inadequate cross overs, 24 guage speaker wire...
The G80 option is called a rear locking differential. it helps with traction. Like if one of the rear wheels starts to spin it locks the rear axle to give you traction (short explaination)

$500?? WOAH i was quoted by a local bodyshop for $90 a mirror. I thought that was steep. The guy was also giving me a break cause i had some work done on my tailgate there. Only thing he couldnt guarantee his work.
These are the steps i did to paint1. Popped the chrome pieces off. Used a butter knife. Around the edges 3m double sided tape holds in on. Then towards the middle there are 4 metal clips. I dont know if the tahoe mirrors you describe are like this (can pop off?)2. Sanded the chrome. Basically scuffed up the chrome with some fine sand paper. 3. Used an adhesion modifier. Used a brush and painted it on. 4. Applied a few coats of primer5. Applied a few coats of automotive paint. They come in small spray paint bottles. I bought mine at a local autoparts store. I know autoezone sells some. They have a book which corresponds to gm/ford/chrysler colors so you get a perfect match. I didnt use a sprayer.6. Finally i added clearcoat. Comes in a spray paint can.
Total cost was like $50 and 2 days of my time (lots of dry time). The modifier stuff was $30 and i am sure i could have gotten it cheaper but i didnt really shop around.
Hope this helps let me know if you need any more help
