I have a 97 s10 with the regular grille the kind that looks similar to a sonoma grille. I was wondering if it is possible to install a double light grill from a 98 s10 or newer truck. If so, is it easy? Thanks If you want talk on AIM: throwitupds

I'm kinda looking into doing the same thing. That or the envoy conversion. I have no clue about your question, but thought I would pop in and get in on the thread to get info when someone else does reply. I'm also bumping the thread too, hopefully someone pops in with an answer. :D

i think that doing the 98+ front end conversion is about the same as an Envoy. You still need a new core support, and all the other obvious hardware. Whether or not its easy depends on your mechanical abilities, but i think the hardest part would be swapping the core.

have anyone took some pics of his work????
I'm still planing the conversion,too.
Yesterday I got the 98+ headlights......now I can start working.... :clap:

I heard that its not really necessary to buy a radiator support.
Some guys did a few mods on the 94-97 rad.sup.(drilled some holes in it..)
You only need the 8 holes for the headlight brackets and 7(?I'm not sure) for the clips.

I think this way would be cheeper and saves time.
Am I right!?!?!?!

Any suggestions????

Does anybody know the part-no of the pigtails????

well i changed the core support when i did mine and the 98+ lights clip in as the 97 and older screw in so I would just buy the support and save yourself the hack job. It will take longer but will be worth it.

I'm assuming your talking about me, its a lot easier to just buy a core/rad support plus itll all line up perfectly if you cut up you 94-97 rad support it may be crooked and really "ghetto" looking heres a before and after of my truck...notice how no one could ever tell by looking at my front end its a 94 THAT IS WHAT YOU WANT

In Germany you can only get the oem radiator support.
The price over here is approx. $500!!! :banghead:

I haven't found any aftermarket dealer who sells overseas....and non at ebay.com
