OK, Part # 23238938 arrived today. Part of the reason it is more expensive is because it is the entire console lid assembly, as opposed to just the lid cover. It is not PADDED, but it is a little bit padded and is certainly far more forgiving than the OEM Z71 blue lid. Anyway, simple process to swap them out. Since the new one came with the entire assembly I just pulled the rear cover off the the console, took tension off the spring arms, removed one E-clip, and then slid the hinge pin out. Reassemble in reverse. Almost takes longer to read the explanation than it does to perform. Bottom line, I'm happy with it and think it's worth the $$. Looks nicer and feels better.
