I can order any GMC grille up to the '93 model year and put it on my '88 S10 with no special mods? All the same holes, no special hardware, extra parts, etc?

Just want to make sure before I order one from LMC.

yes, and no.

the 82-90 grille uses a 3 piece grille, a grille and two headlight bezels along with a filler piece thats painted and goes between the grille and bumper.


91-93 are a different breed. they are one piece, the whole thing is one piece. these also delete the use of a filler panel that goes under the grille. It is a part of the grille now.






that being discussed, when you bolt a 91-93 grille on an 82-90 core support. you have a headlight alignment problem.



if you swap the core support to a 91-93 s10 or 91-94 blazer, OR relocate the headlights, it will look like this.




it will bolt up, but will look ugly unless you fix the headlight gap.

i have had nothing but issues with the relocator kit. I am going to be going to the junkyard soon and getting a core support from the 91-93 model.
