i am about to do a 98+ conversion and cannot figure out yet what i want to do with the bumper/valance, whether i want to cover it with a bumper cover or what not. so show me some sweet front ends to give me an idea what i might be after. all you xtreme guys can post, but im not really going for the stock xtreme look at all. thanks and get those pics coming!!

has anyone ever smoothed out or modified the stock valance that hangs below the 98+ S-10 bumper? I was thinking of doing this also...pics?

dont do a 98 conversion, and then cover up the 98 bumper...

ss gen 4 valance is nice and clean...IMO, especially mine, after i got it never installed, for 50 bucks :)

really the 98+ conversion is mostly for the grille and lights, well for me...but i think now im leaning toward the smoothing out of the stock valance and putting in some fogs...

but still on with the pics....(its not over yet...:p )

hey whobewa, if you wait a lil bit ill have most of the stuff youd need to do the phantom grille setup, without the actual phantom. that would mena the core, bumper, valance, lights n stuff. just a thought

ok i did a quick paint (not photoshop here:rolleyes: ) and heres some ideas im kicking around. keep in mind this will be smoothed and painted white to match...


or maybe with fogs?



tell me what you think, and if you like the idea which one, fogs or no fogs.
:eek: that grille with fogs is gonna be a real pain...

meh, 97 bravada bumper cover looks better than that....that looks like dookey, and if you did a 97 bravada bumper all you'd need is the grille, lights and corner lenses which it seems like you already have

i took a look at a 97 bravada front and i dont see how it will match up to a 98+ grille. looks like its too tall. might fit the 97 and below easily but i dunno...

uh, the 97 bravada bumper would match perfectly since it is FLAT across the top like the s-10 grille needs....it would fit perfect, believe me I've done just about every front end conversion there is.....swapped parts from damn near every s-series at one time or another....97 bravada bumper cover with a 98+ grille and headlights would be SICK
