    Been having problems sourcing these.

    I Need both Left and Right side. I’m fairly certain the years ‘81 thru ‘85 are the current bezels. Also must be in good condition. Please let me know if you have and would like to sell.

    Thank you.

    I just noticed the Picture supplied is the ‘86 version. Which will not work. They look almost identical but they are in fact slightly different and not interchangeable.

    I'll find out what we've got in the pile, those are tough years to find in good condition. If you don't hear from me by this evening, give me a shout back.

    Okay, I know we got some. We get $40 apiece on them. But, I'll have to send pics. Being all our parts have more than a little experience, you can usually expect to see some crazing in the turn signal lenses and you may need to touch up the argent and black on them. But no cracks, holes, or missing pieces.

    What makes them different after '85? I thought they were all the same '81-'90. Like Garret I saved some over the years and would like to be able to correctly identify what I have.

      They are different but I forgot the exact changes. I'm going back into the hoard tomorrow so I'll get pics of the 85/86 differences and see if we have a better than average pair.

      with the grill change in 86/ then again in 91/ with each change they moved the headlite buckets up and out, not as much with the 86 as with the 91 up "ugly grill" models. If you change the core support you either need to stay within the 81-85//86-90// and 91-93 ranges or move the headlite buckets accordingly.
      I too need a couple 81-85 ones. or at least the parking lites out of a set/

        Can you send the pics here Or the forum as well. As long as they are decent I’ll take the plunge. Phone number removed. Send that info through a personal message.

          Curious here. Is the core support the only thing necessary to change in order to swap from 81-85 to 86-90? Wouldn’t mind having the option if I’m not able to get a hood looking set of bezels.

            keep looking. too much work just for a couple of bezels. I think you can drill the spot welds on the headlite buckets and move them to match.... but not 100% sure.

                This video gives you some idea of the complications of changing cores. This doesn't get into the second gen trucks of the 1972-1993 series, but I'll post it once I find it.

                Goodluck i had trouble finding them 15 years ago! I never did find a new set. I ended up getting a parts truck it was a 86 I modified them to work but it wasn't exact. The bolt holes didn't line up if I remember correctly. I had to drill new holes in the header panel and use those plastic anchors like you use to hang pictures

                  This first picture is of the ‘86 version. That nub I circled is what primarily changed outright. Second pic is the earlier years version. Aside from that they do not contour the grill exactly the same nor are they the correct size all around if you where to simply file down that nub.

                    I've gone after three pair today, I'll post pic's once the rain lets up a little. One set is the black with argent painted trim and one set is chrome with argent trim. The third set is a chrome set that someone has brushed black with either RustOleum or auto body paint. These three sets are in very good condition. We have a few good individual right or left side bezels and also some scratch and chip specials if someone were just needing one with a complete turn signal lens.

                    Okay, the argent and chrome set passenger side has a chip out of the lower outside corner, as is common. It’s hard to find any of these trucks that haven’t been worked and bumped on the grill and front trim.
                    Here’s the pics of them

                    PM me and we’ll get it going. PayPal preferred. Shipping will be via UPS to make sure there’s adequate bubble wrap around them. Unfortunately, this plastic doesn’t get stronger with age.
