Default The great debate... Which front end do you like better?

I have a 1998 Chevy Blazer LS 4x4. I have the usual LS grille with the flat 'slats' that run across the top and bottom of the chrome strip(P.S.-My passenger side marker light likes to fall out randomly) I prefer the 'pocketed' looking grille of the LT/ZR2 grilles and I like the Jimmy grilles, but dont really like the headlights.

My friend has a whole front grille assembly from a GMC Sonoma that he is willing to give me. So my question is whether I should keep what I got, find a grille assembly from an LT/ZR2 and keep my headlights and crappy marker light, or just do the whole Jimmy front end swap?

Please post your opinions!

Thanks,
Zach

I agree I like the LT grill better. my favorite grill however is the 95-97 blazer front end the best. my s10 had that grill I still miss it sometimes...

I I must say that I am partial to my year front end (1995 LS). I think it is the most trucky looking with the rectangular lights.

hmmm... I dont know about the grille, but that flat black bowtie is awesome!

Going back to the reason I started this thread..... Do yous guys think I should keep my 1998 Blazer LS front end? Or change it out to the Jimmy grille?

I am more for keeping the correct one for your vehicle but that is just my opinion.

I like the sealed beams with a chrome grill and a 98+ chrome front bumper. Had that setup on my S10
