    I have a 89 chevy and I know this can be done but want to know more info on this. I want to up grade my grille to the 94 to 98 style grille,I was told that I needed the radiator support bracket and yes I know I need new side marker lights and a bowtie in the middle too. I already up graded my turn signals to the 94 to 98 kind. I will be puting a billet grille insert in too.
    Anything else you guys can think of would help or if I left something out.

    Or you just go Find one at a Junk Yard and Get all the parts from it and RIG the hell outta it to make it work I know of a couple of trucks around my town that did this and it looks pretty good but you lose your year stylin and I like the dual front light set up b/c it looks so MEAN . Pretty dont go to good offroad usally broken and not so prutty anymore so unless you got a brush guard dont take out small trees and brush. I did this a few times sometimes not on purpose. Use Zip Ties for stuff easy and fun to use they got so many good use's! /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif www.zombieoffroading.8m.net

    I think those ads were for the rubbery plastic covered bumpers, and perhaps the grille on some cars. The grille on our '94 Sub is made out of the same brittle plastic as earlier models. As an added "bonus" it is also covered with GM's infamous self-removing chrome. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Mine was plain,single headlight.I think one I want is from Work Truck style.Just broke small peice where reflector goes beside headlight,so not in to big hurry.Liked the escalade look though,but too much chrome for my ride.If it shines you have to wax it more. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gifer /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
