    Now that I have my insurance check in hand I am ready to order replacement parts for the Jimmy. Has anybody used the LMC "repro" parts? LMC wants $229.95 for a OE grille vs $89.95 for the repro grille.

    Anybody have any info, good or bad?

    Main difference is probably going to be the emblem on the oe and generic for the aftermarket.

    I wouldn't recommend an aftermarket part. I have a aftermarket grille on my 89 K5 it doesn't fit worth a flip /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif It has gaps, center section doesn't line up with outer headlight trim pieces and the chrome on one side is already coming off. Not worth the savings IMHO.

    I just ordered a billet aluminum grill from summit under $100, looks good and easy install, fit like a charm /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif.
