    FYI Truck Shop has the very hard to find 1983 - 1984 GMC grilles. They do not have the provision for the GMC letters. 83BE6570-921B-4131-A9B6-EFFD343C6837.jpeg 545193C2-2590-4869-B2E6-5284F3CFBEFC.jpeg C70DF948-253C-4607-A357-CC590BC176AE.jpeg

    I'd guess it's the same tooling as the old crash parts replacement that was available through all the aftermarket suppliers?

    I might still have one. I can't remember if I sold it or not.

    All other vendors have discontinued this part, it’s been impossible to find. I’m still searching for an OEM

    That's what I mean. I bet they bought the tooling from Tong Yang or whichever company it was. What was once a $35 grille is now quite spendy.

    I used to have the original grille from my '84. I bet I let it go way too cheap, lol. Other than a coat of paint that was flaking off, there was no damage.

    Oh, Fock. yeah, that would be a priority to me as well. One thing if the houses were designed to get a breeze - still be hot - but they ain't, so no AC = it gets hot inside fast.

    Oh who the hell buys a house that faces East and West?
    It gets hot AF.

    How much do they want for a window sash homeboy?
    Can't I fix this one? Bein bent ain't the end of the world..I think all I really need is one pinche plastic roller but again, I didn't look at it much but I found it in the bottom of the door.
    See I let the tailgate dropp instead on laying it down gently and WHAM! Broke.

    Hey, did you ever find out if you have the grill and if so do it have the GMC badge letters?

    I never looked for it and I'm out of town for a little while. Being aftermarket, it didn't have the GMC letters or even holes to mount them.
