  1. The brackets have to mount the proper bumper unless you get hacky. They mount to the bumper differently
  2. When I had my 88, I did the 93+ front bumper (I did a one piece though). You will need the bumper to frame brackets and if I remember correctly may have to notch one of the frame side holes on the bracket (might be case dependent as mine were originally D21 brackets as it was a setup off a previously owned Hardbody).
  3. Direct swap for the grill, bumper will require the proper bumper to frame brackets (to match the bumper year) but will bolt directly to the frame as well. If doing a D21 grill/headlight setup you will also need headlight buckets, wiring pigtails and side markers. Again aside from the headlight plugs is all bolt on as well
  4. If you find yourself in the Pittsburgh area, Millerstown pick-a-part had 3-4 r50s as of last week (didn't actually go over to them to see how scavenged, was on a mission for 1 specific part), but avoid any lots owned by 'rusty hook'.
  5. Nice truck, but a LOT more could be bought for 18k... But you know what can be said about a fool and his money
  6. Late to the party too, but I have dated taste and would have voted out myself!
  7. Its your truck, who cares. I used Mopar 'Panther Pink' and generic appliance white on WhiteOwl (and used White Out as touch up). Heck, I painted my S10 with house paint...
  8. Only modifying ive personally done was the antifouler trick (and actually made spacers out of lug nut lock keys for a friends Escalade that was supposed to be a temporary fix 3 years ago...). Was always OBD2 stuff that didn't require visual emission check though, as long as the (properly working) engine light was off and was in spec for incomplete monitors=sticker time!
  9. That looks more like a paint prep failure at some point. The ventshade was just what it took to bring it to light. The tape didn't fail as pointed out, the paint is still attached to it. A couple months of double sided tape being stuck to it wasn't the cause, just the showing symptom. Your upset at the wrong target. As for the Maaco comment, we had a wrecker at work redone by them. Crap job but got what we paid for, didn't really care as it was getting vinyled anyway AMD even if we wanted to couldn't do anything since they got evicted from their building shortly after
  10. Had it happen once with a set of 10" wide Centerline Hellcats on a Tahoe. Still have the centers somewhere from the bad set... Had no issues exchanging (I forget who they were bought through... I mean Hellcats were actually considered a 'current' wheel at the time). Can't give any experience on Cragar copy's though
  11. but true I replaced mine with one from Frontier or an Xterra if I remember right when mine was dryrotted
  12. For a company called 'Unique Wheels' I would expect something... unique, not just 100% knock off copys.
  13. Alot of newer crap don't even have a spare, its an 'option' or 'package'...
  14. When I had WhiteOwl, rear parking break cables sucked to find (88 with rear disc). My Carquest rep eventually found them in Canadia Eh. Pretty much everything else was available, scavengeable, or i took from ToolShed/my own stash of D21 pieces.
  15. Check your motor mounts and transmission mount as well
  16. I used to get an occasional "Jeep Wave" from a couple random XJs (Jeep people are kinda dumb-the irony) but would only be verbally confused with other imports.
