    Does anyone know where I can find a 1991 front end clip. Also will it fit on all prevoius blazers or just back to 1981 or what?

    Try junkyards. You can put the whole clip on any K5 back to 73. Also you can buy the parts new.

    You can just swap grills on the 81-91's the hood and fenders are the same. I believe there is/was a writeup of this in the tech section. On the pre 81 swap there is a differance with the cowl,wipers, and all the tin. The available years for the swap are 89-91

    The '89-'91 trucks have a different radiator/core support for the different style headlights. If you get a complete '91 clip it will work on anything back to '73. The '73-'80's require cutting the firewall for the hood hinges. Refer to the article for all the scoop- http://coloradok5.com/grilleswap.shtml

    Check salvage yards for complete used clips.

    i put a 1990 suburban front clip on my 86 blazer after my wreck. I called all over the place i must have called over 40 junk yards in houston TX where i live. There are alot of suburbans out there but they are pretty expensive i paid $700 for mine that is pretty cheap compared to what some people want some wanted up to $2000 no joke i just laughed and said good-bye. The average price was around $1000. I liked buying the whole front clip because it went on in one whole piece and all i had to do was a little wiring for the headlights and i was done. Just thought i would share my experience with you.
