Default Changing grills

I have a '93 c1500 that is the work truck model, so it has the single, sealed headlights.



I want to know if you have, or know someone that has switched the grill to the dual headlight setup like the picture below, because there are a lot more options for grill styles and such.



What all is involved in doing this swap?

need to change the grill headlight supports and the core support to the dual headlight style. find a truck that got ass packed and take all of the front end components off it.

you need the grill lower filler and headlights with maounting panel. the core support will accept all of this. only other thing is wiring up headlight to a two bulb system easy job as long as you can operate a test light and a soddering iron
