Just had ours installed by the dealer. A hair over $400 for the bowtie and the installation. Well worth it not to have to take apart a brand new truck!
Not a bad price. Mine was $359.45 installed plus tax with the order of my Blazer. Of course, I got no deal on the vehicle.

That's a bummer! I definitely feel like we got a GREAT deal on ours! Didn't want silver, or one with black wheels but that's exactly what we got. The "glow tie" was actually a little "cheaper" because when we took the deal sheet showing value for our trade in, it was sight unseen. They actually ended up giving us $200 more, which left us with a credit w/ the dealer, so WIN! I would recommend my dealer, and buy from them again. <3

My son did mine, The bumper is a PIA coming off. The tabs all broke on the mounting pice of the grill emblem. The end result was great but I would recommend a dealer install on this

I have noticed everyone saying that you have to remove the front fascia to install this and while that is not wrong it is definitely not the easiest way to do it. You can simply use a flat tipped screwdriver and break the old bow tie off, it cuts the install time down drastically. It maybe took me a total of 10 minutes to do mine.
Thanks Chcreel,
I spent over two hours trying to figure out how to remove the emblem, then was bombed out after reading you need to remove the facia. After reading your review, I beat your time by five minutes. I would tell anyone if you are not going to reuse the bowtie that you are removing, use the screwdriver. I lifted the edge with my finger slid the screwdriver under where the tab are, click, click, click, click, snap in the new one, done (5 min. tops)

Got a new Silverado TB and installed the “Glow-Tie”. Pretty cool and not that hard. Got a new Blazer and used my Chevy points towards a Glow-Tie for it. Actually joined this forum as a result of running into a dead end when found out I had to take the fascia off. Read the last few posts and went that route. For me easy decision to break the tabs. I used a plastic trim tool and they snapped fairly easy. Rest of install was easy as stated above. Definitely recommend that route!

It took like 30 minutes to install had a buddy help me out we did not take off the bumper, we just did what another member said, I taped around the original bowtie and got some plastic pry tools and worked my way around the bowtie it broke the clips but I ain't using the old bowtie anymore and then ran the cable the best way I could and then followed the instructions from Chevy on how to connect to the day light running lamps.

I did mine over the weekend. Since I'm not concerned about keeping the original bowtie I too went with breaking the clips. Running the wiring securely takes the most time. It's very dim during the day, but I guess that's to be expected. It looks great at night.

Looks great, well worth it.
$120 installed at my dealership. I am an employee, so if you go in a dealership, a fair install price would be no more than 150 for a non employee. Shopchevyparts.com beat even my employee price on the emblem so I ordered it there. Shipped fast as well.
As a Dealership employee. Would a 2020 blazer illuminated bow tie fit a 2021 Chevy trailblazer?? Or are the bow ties not the same size?? Would love to know!!!!! Thank you
