Not without changing the core support or major surgery. The headlight spacing is different as far as I know.At least on the 92-93's

The 91-93 grille will fit the 80-90 body style just fine, but you will need to swap the radiator support (it is a bolt in though).

To make the grille fit the 72-79 trucks, you either need to swap front clips, and doors, or carefully build up the side of the front fenders with body filler, and make it flow into the rest of the body lines.

Hi!
I am new to the forum...love the late 70's and up to 92 body style trucks....have an 83 D-150 with a 496 stroker motor 727 trans,dana 60 rear with 3.50 gears.... and an 84 with a slant six and 833 od. Both are short wide bed trucks....on the 83 i modified the lower control arms by installing a spring pocket to lower it...c-notched the frame and moved the rearend above the springs...rides and drives great.....like the mileage of the slant six...in the middle of a fuel injection conversion...hopin for 22 mpg.......


84 D150 440/727
79 /6 swb D150
1964 A100 window van. Just because it has spark plug tubes doesn't mean it's a Hemi.



If ya haven't been there, ya just wouldn't understand.

Both sound really cool. Let us see them!! Have you run the 83 down the 1320? Just interested in times.
