Need to fix up the truck if I am going to keep it a while.

If you have them in the area try Veng or Certa Fit. They are not as good as OEM but if your truck is older they could last you a while. I put a Veng bummper on my old truck and it is still looking good as new. The grills that they use are the same as OE from my experience. Another option with the grill and bumpers is to have them painted the same color as the truck. It looks good and really will make the truck seem more updated. This of course is only a option if the bumper is not all smashed up.

I have a 1993 Chevy. I am on my second grill. The chrome was peeling away from the first one when the truck was 5 years old. I replaced it and now 5 years later its peeling again. With my commercial discount at a local Chevy dealer the grill was $187.00 five years ago. There are GM part places on the web that will give a huge discount and wont charge sales tax if you are out of state. Pace Parts comes to mind.

Yesterday I cleaned all the love bugs off my grill and noticed its peeling in a few places. They changd the grill in '95 or so and Ive never seen one of these peel. I think you may have to buy new turn signals and side marker lights if you go to the newer grill but it may be worth it if you want to keep the truck. The other option is to buy an aftermarket grill. You probably can get something in polished stainless for what the oem cost.

I have a rear bumper for you.
It is one of those custom chrome bumpers that are very heavy duty, thick (looking from top to bottom) in the center and tapering out as it meets the sides (kinda hard to explain.)
It was on my old truck for a year before I traded it in.
Wadaya think, $50 bucks for the pain in the ass factor of shipping it to you. If not, mabe free sounds better
Let me know

TB,

PM me or email me at [email protected]. I can get all the mentioned parts. I don't think shipping will be a major cost. Price? You will be taken care of, as would anyone from the board.
