Awesome I will let you know once at that point soon.  Another ?.  I purchased an r 3500 1991 3+3.  As I learned more about it it seems to be a V3500 as it is 4wd, np205, dana 60, 4l80e, 14 bolt full float 4.10's 350cu in, 1 ton.  Year 1991 not verified with numbers on the truck but is TBI injection and indeed a square body and I am familiar with how chevy kept the squarebody in the heavy trucks these years.  Question is what different grills can I get and do you sell those?  Mine has single square headlight and single signal marker below.

Are you looking for factory grilles used or new or custom/aftermarket?

With the single stack setup, you are pretty much limited to what you have there if you want factory.  Otherwise you will need to get a billet grille.

OK thats what it seems, thinkin I like the front that Irish_Alley has, the dual smaller headlights side by side.  Local yard wants 500 for the grill lights and light baskets and core support to be able to swap to that grill, is that just crazy talk as far as the price?

I think it's crazy but they are desirable. Is this you take it off or them?
