    me and my k5, Tracy, had a minor... you know. anywho, the front left clip and the front bumper are toast, and some grille parts, lighte, etc. and i like LMC magazine's prices, but i have heard of poor quality in some of their other items, anyone know about the bumper and panel, its 140 for just the bumper and 100 for the body. its an 87, stock, and are the clips/bumpers the same on the pickups, if so, from what year range, thanks for your help, and how hard is this to do by myself, never done any body stuff before...

    I have a LMC rear quarter that did not fit very well. I would not use LMC metal again. Get used ones instead. Look for 1982 to 1991 Blazer/Jimmy/Burb and 82 to 87 trucks.

    Around here;

    Fenders are free to $75.
    I have found several perfect used bumpers for $25.

    I have had great luck w/ LMC on parts for my first gen. If yuo are able to find junkyard parts for your year model (it is not in your profile), I would go w/ the junkyard.

    Great place, especially since I get employee discount! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
