Help needed searching for some parts.

Hello, I've been looking for the plugs/pigtails that go the two lights on the right side of the image (lights above and below each other). I have tried local auto parts stores and have had no luck any information on where I could find them or a part number would be appreciated.

The second part I need is the front grille and headlight surround (rear ended someone ) I seen a few on ebay and am wondering if anyone has had any experience with the quality of chrome on these pieces vs something OEM. If anyone could help out with this search it would greatly speed up the process of bringing my truck back to a clean look.

Thank you much appreciated

I have black grill and headlight surround. LMC Truck and Rock Auto have been decent for me. Didn't take long to fade in this Houston heat but a little TLC and paint fixed that.

LMC Truck for the chrome might be your best bet. As for Ebay keep an eye on the seller, sometimes it's a dealership unloading old parts and you can score an OEM one for decent price.

All good advice above, when it comes to wiring and old trucks you may have to start making your own.

Sounds good! I'll check them out. **Update** Ended up ordering the parts off of lmc.

Thanks!

I definitely would not mind making my own wiring if the plugs didn't crack down the middle and I cant find the anything to replace it with. Cheers!

If you are into it, you can buy your own OEM grade connectors and easily make them.

I agree that buying is easier when you can.
