newer grilles in early 80's chevy

I see old trucks with the grill that looks like it is from a 88-93 chevy. Is this a direct replacement in these early 80 model trucks?

they will fit 81 and up, you are looking for one out of a Suburban or crew cab 90-91.

There is also a late model front clip conversion.

I think he is asking about the newer body style front ends, Not the Sub,Blazer,1 ton, that were from 89-91

grill conversion

This is what i'm looking to do, how do i get that grill in my '84, and what kind of grill should I be looking for? Do I need a different core support and all?

Get a front clip off the model truck you want and put it on yours....

Here's a writeup that off-road.com did a while back on what I think you're looking for. Has a parts list and everything.

thanks for the offroad write up, that persuaded me pretty quick to like the looks of the '84 grill. Looks so easy to do, but I didn't realize that all of that had to be done! If anyone has a way around all of that just let me know. I would rather not chang up my front fenders and hood latches.

Do you have a ratchet and a set of sockets?

hallettsville is about 45 miles due north of victoria, tx. So are you telling me that it would be an exact fit? Can you get black 90 model grilles?
