Hey all. Got a 87 R10 im looking to make the front clip back to stock. I tried researching this and found no luck. Im wondering how extensive of a project this is. Does anyone have a parts list and a step by step? I have an 89 Burb Grille front end. I think those LMC dress up kits for the OE style 87’s look awesome. Thank you!

You will need a rad support and all the associated parts for the 87 grill. Wiring you maybe ok.

The process is pretty easy. Unbolt the whole middle and rebolt the 87 stuff.

Thank you thor. So obviously I willhave to remove the radiator and everything on the support. Is it other than the radiator support just the grille parts? So the radiator in truck now will work? And i assume its the “original” PN radiator in there now.

You can leave the radiator connected to the truck still. It will fit. If you have a transmission cooler out front you may have to disconnect same with power steering cooler if you have one. You will use the same battery tray and evap canister holder, Hood latch, hood latch support.

Parts are rad support for dual headlights the lower body piece between the fenders. All the grill components for which style of grill you want. The trim around the grill.

Or find a doner for all these parts.

The lmc truck page is pretty good for parts required to complete it.
