    I've seen Billet grilles for 89+ dual beam front ends but I haven't seen them for the sealed beam(1 headlight each side) setup. Anyone know of such a thing? I understand it will probably be a cut your old grille apart kind. Just compiling a list of things to do to my Suburban, I like this style front end and don't want to convert to the dual headlight setup.

    89 dident have the "new style" grill did it?
    if its just a regular sealed beam front end then you can use the same grill of a dual headlight truck /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    quite right but 89 was also the year for the new sealed beam front end too, I will go take a picture of my burb and post it showing you. I personally really like the sealed beam front end.

    seriously, I really like those style front ends, thought about converting mine to that grille/headlights but I didn't wan't to mess with switching the radiator support, then I bought a billet grille for mine and decided "screw it". /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Maybe you can swap the 88 down outer bezels and turn signals onto that grill or go with a phantom.

    Pictures of both in this post . The 2headlight set up is on the second page. Those grimm are $80 or so for the non haontom for Summit.
