    '82-'90 front grill to a '91-'94 grill

    Just another Question, I want to do the updated jimmy grill to do this i will have to buy headlight relocator right? is that all or do i need additional parts.
    85' jimmy ,carburated 2 point hate,all stock! 0-60mph......maybe? on a cold night,w/ the gas peddle stapled down, windows rolled up, and the rear sproiler removed!!!

    um, try searchin for this on the forum. there's tons of stuff.

    Options:
    -relocator kit (sometimes made cheaply)
    -stickin the grille on with a gap (what i did cause im poor and just dont have time yet
    -91-94 rad. support swap aka the *correct way* (what i want to do. junkyard rad supports arent too bad as far as price, but the swap takes a fair amount of time.

    Not to steal the thread, but are you saying you can just put a 91-94 grille on like an 87 and it will fit fine? like i know u need to swap rad supports, or do a headlight relocator, but it sounds to me like you just put the grille on? did you?and didn't move the lights:confused:

    yeah, there are plans on here for making brakets, i jus havent gotten to it yet. yes, i do have a gap. i dont think it looks too bad though. kinda gotten used to it.

    i put mine on easy enough. had to drill new holes in the rad support though, and trimmed a little part on the grille so the grille could fit over the headlights. thats bout it.
