    I'm looking to see if I can go from the 80's single headlight with marker below, to stocked headlights witht he marker in the grill without changing the rad support.
    Currently I'm swapping the front clip off this truck: (you'll have to cut and paste, its a weird format...

    And I'm looking to go to this: (ignore the 'yota)

    As I said, I already have a mint grill of the 2nd style, so if the new lights just bolt in place of the markers, I'm set. So...will they? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Thankya.

    I believe you will have to change the core support. There won't be any place for the second set of lights to mount to.

    Yes, you will have to change the readiator support for the second set of light. I am tackling that monster in a few weeks and just bought me another truck with the clip I want to do the exchange. Good luck.

    Looks awful like the Warn Classic. I have one, though a PO welded a brushguard to it, so I can send you more pix if you want.

    Just do what I did. Change grilles, and put turn signals in the bumper.

    My new bumper is going to have oval shaped turn signals built right into it.
