    Hello, I've been looking for a grill similar to this one in the picture, but haven't been able to find one. I can only find plain billet, none with the trim/bowtie in the middle. Figured I'd see if anyone here might be able to point me in the right direction. Thanks!

    Welcome. That looks like a billet grill with an 83-84 stainless center bar added over the top. You could do the same thing with an 85-88, but the center bar is wider (photo 2). Photo 3 is a member's truck. I think he used the chrome LMC grill with an '85 and up center.

    Thanks! I will give that a shot! Looks like I need to get a regular billet grill, and a lot of epoxy :)

    The bow tie and stainless strips have studs on them. If the nuts will fit between the horizontal bars, you could fab a bracket to clamp it to the grill. Back in the 90's I had a square tube chrome grill where the studs weren't long enough to go through the back of the grill, so I used 3M trim tape to hold it in place.

    @R10C10 is the member with the red truck. I pinned him to the tread, so maybe he'll reply how he made his grill.

    The extended bar between the upper and lower headlights is part of an optional appearance package, not a model year change.

    Because we didn't already have enough trivial [email protected] to dwell on.

    I used the lmc chrome special addition grill and then attached the factory center grill molding to it using the studs on the back of the molding. The studs where not long enough so I removed the clips from the molding, cut studs off the clips, drilled the stud out of the clip, shaved the head of a longer bolt down to fit in between the clips and molding, and reinstalled the clips on the molding, then attached it to the grill with a nut and washer. Could very easily do the same thing with any billet grill
