    What year did the dash bezel change? My 1990 bezel is broken around the radio area so I bought one supposedly out of an '86. Well, no go, the radio area of my '90 is offset and the new bezel doesn't fit.:mad:

    I think it was '89 they went to the large radio opening.

    Just a bit of trivia... Does anyone have the factory 'radio-delete' cover plate for the 89-91 R/V series?... besides me? :D

    You have a picture of that? If it's an actual additional plate not just a different bezel, I'd be interested in seeing it. :)

    The problem with the radios is that it took GM *forever* to install the digital display ones in the trucks, so through a large portion of the 80's, the trucks only accept (as a bolt in) the non-digital radios. Well, the digital radios with the knobs on the same side anyways.
