    My 84 has the air dam. Maybe only Silverados were equipped with one...... /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    My '86 K10, '89 K5 and '90 K5 had them. The K10 wasn't a Silverado and the K5's were.

    My '88 Jimmy didn't come with one, but a kid at school has a Silverado with one. Not sure of the exact year, but it's definatley an 80's model.

    I had an 87 Chevy shortbed Custom Deluxe 4WD about 10 years ago that had the airdam, towhooks, and the bumper pushguards on it.

    My '85 K30 had one til I removed it.

    I've had a few other K's in the past and some had them and some didn't.

    Most I've had had notches in them to make room for tow hooks.

    BTW, the technical term for the air dam is "valance." /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    It's a "deflector, front air".

    My 86 has one. It's a Silverado. It's busted. I said I would take it off, but never got to it.

    None of my three trucks ever had one since I've owned them, but none of them are Silverados. The 87 K/V 20 I worked on the other day did though. I think they're gay, I'm glad mine never had one. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    R72K5,
    If you are wanting one, I took mine off my 90 and its in my garage. It has the cut outs for the tow hook. I am sure mine will be cheaper then LMC's.
