Those always remind me of an 'ol gal gettin a boob job. You know kind of like putting a new porch on an 'ol house. Heck with what we all say. It's your truck. Do what YOU like. Make it the way you want it. Enjoy it your way not the way of the majority. You'll never please everyone with these wonderful things. You've got a great truck. Have fun with anyway you want. Nothin is permanent.

Using just the Khan grill alone will not really work. You need the entire widebody kit. Otherwise it will look like you found it and bolted it on the wrong car.
However if you are going to the expense of doing that and paint, you should first invest your money into a better engine and drive train, suspension, update the wiring, lights and interior.Repair or replace the nasty bits before investing in body kits.

By the way. I am not affiliated with Khan. (although I did design the 110 kit and they went forward with the project) Khan is not just plastic, its carbon fibre. (super glorified plastic) But so what, and who cares what anyone else thinks.
The original factory grills are cheap cheap cheapie cheap plastic. Who the hell cares.

Its your truck, you drive it. My two cents was free.
If you want me to design it for you theres a fee for that.

What is your goal? Make it look better? Make it look different? Make it look newer?

So, I'd like to poll the group. Should I add this grill package to my 1984 Ninety?

Thanks!
