    Here are 3 models, and should have 3 more in the next week or two.

    The last 2 picts is a mock-up of replacement turn signals and
    rectangle 100 watt KC long range offroad lights.

    All the grills posted below are a bolt on product.
    There about 49.5 inches wide,and fit from headlight bezel to bezel.

    Pict #1 was designed for the 81-83 w/turn signals in the bumper,or under the headlights.
    but will fit all years thru 87. Cost is $209.00
    Without center tube is $179.00
    Without center tube but with turn signals is $209.00

    Pict #2 was built for the 84-87 and comes with replacement turn signals.
    Cost is $239.00

    Pict #4 and #5 is still under development, it will come with the turn signals
    but not the offroad lights. Cost to be announced.

    Will soon have a model that will carry (4) 6" round KC's.:D

    I'll keep you up to speed on the grills coming up. Thanks Larry

    Hope these help give a better visual, The bezels are off a 83 Burb.
    Will get some installed photos when i can find a decent truck locally.
    I have some picts in a 81, but the truck is a little rough.
    Doesn't do much for the grills...:doah:

    That last photo in Post #11 is awesome. That would look very cool on my 86. I'll definitely jump on the bandwagon if you need PR volunteers. Have you come up with a price yet? Taxes will be back soon...yeah baby.:saweet:

    Man, them things looks nice. I was all ready to get one but am moving from AK back to the lower 48 next month so money's a little tight. I'll be ordering one this summer hopefully. Keep up the good work.
