Finally! A legit reproduction grille for the 77-80 GMC trucks!
***SHIPPING IN EARLY 2024***
Are you tired of holding your breath in fear of breaking the tired old plastic every time you touch your tired brittle plastic grille?
Upgrade your truck with the best grille on the market for 1977-80 GMC Trucks.
Designed, produced, finished, welded, and shipped from Damascus, Oregon USA.
Grilles are engineered to fit your truck - and are intended to last as long (or longer) than your truck. All of our products are produced in the Pacific Northwest by top suppliers & craftsman. The aluminum is cut on a CNC laser, formed on a CNC press brake, brushed (or polished) by hand, and TIG welded together! Once complete, each Grille AF is inspected, kitted, and packaged to be shipped to you.
Designed to match the OEM plastic grille as close as possible; each grille is fabricated from individual aluminum pieces and an aluminum backer, and is hand-assembled before welding.
Grille can be ordered to accept stock GMC emblem or with optional letters.
Mounts to truck identically as stock 77-80 GMC factory grille with new provided hardware.
1) Brushed finish / polished center band: These are machine finished to a brushed finish on two sides of each piece (front edge retains laser cut profile) with polished center band
2) Powder coated finish / polished center band: Powder coated Grille AF in the color of your choice using top quality powder coat from Cardinal Powder with polished center band
3) Polished finish: (Coming in early 2024)For the ultimate in appearance. These are hand polished on front grille section & center band. Grille "windows" and backing ribs are brushed finish
1) Is there a clear coat on these grilles?
No. Each clear coat we have found on the market has issues (whether clear powder, clear anodize, or spray clear) - most of these do not play well with UV light from the sun. Similar to aluminum wheels, these grilles will need to be periodically polished for best appearance. If you have a clear coat to recommend - please reach out to us - we would love to discuss.
2) Can you do custom coatings - I want a black/silver/etc… powder coated grille?
Please select our "Powder Coated Finish" option for colors.
Chevy bowtie or GMC emblem not included
