I looked on an Avy/EXT parts list I have and this is the part and number for the EXT piece.

Looks like that plastic strip may have been part of the rear gate molding, as they call it, all along and not a separate piece as I see no mention of it separately.

Rear gate molding for 2002-2006 EXT Part #88944304

Maybe finding an EXT tailgate in a scrapyard for cheap (yeah, right) might score the spoiler with the plastic piece.

I am also not clear if the plastic piece would even come off cleanly or if the first gen spoiler would even fit on a second gen truck.

I'm thinking it would probably make more sense for others to just build one like you did since it looks pretty damn good on your truck.

If I ever get a second gen Avalanche with painted cladding, I know I will.

Well my $44 mod/protection is complete. As far as I see there are no issues with the added piece between the rear bed cover and tailgate. This just saved me a lot of money as I don't have to replace what was previously damage and it will protect that edge of the tailgate spoiler from future damage.

Thanks, it did turn out better than expected. It saved me some buck too since it covers up the damage on the edge of my tailgate spoiler.
