    Vote on which grille....

    Bill, since you posted and mentioned it I'll throw my .02 in :D I vote you keep the 73 grille. The SSII grilles are kind of a dime a dozen (yeah, I have one on my 79, but I needed 'something' to offset all of the white:cool: ). The 73 style sets it apart and looks 'rugged' imho;)

    Vote on the grille-2

    Keep the '73 grille...the SS grilles are way too over used from what I see. 'Corse if the crowd is moving to the Right I automaticly move Left! Thats why I drive a SCOUT nobody has'm where I live!

    Your truck is sweet:D
    I'd keep the 73 grill, because I think it looks nice and looks good with your top. I love the top.:p

    73 grill??? What is up with that.

    Get the SSII grill. It is not the most popular grill for no reason!!! It is the biggest, baddest, coolest grill out there!!! :D

    Your rig is looking really sweet Bill. Can't wait to see the first scratch/dent :D

    Didn't know there was an SSII forum till today. Gotta send a note to the SSII list to come check it out.

    Thanks Bill. This format is much more fun. Much more personality in here!!!

    I got to disagree with you Hooper. :D
    the 1971 - that's the baddest grill out there. And i got one for my rig. Funny, I got a whole 71 tub. :D

    But I do like the 73, better than my 74 or 76. And I like it better than the SSII because even in dark places you can see the outline better than a SSII grill. :p

    Hah!! Poser :D You are just worried that in the gloom up here in the PNW all winter, your rig will not show up in your pictures!!!!;)

    Those grills are all too busy. Can't see much of my grill behind my winch, brush guard, and fog lights anyway!! :)

    Dave,

    That was the begining. You should see them now.
    two have no front end on them. one is all the way down to tub and drive train (sort of). Almost ready to pull the tub off those two. The third is waiting to see what I need to get to put one together.:p
    I still like the 73 grill for your Truck Bill. Keep it. Be yourself and be unique, after all we are talking about binders, it's not like we follow the pack anyway.:D

    Noooooo. If it is going to look like a SS1.5, it needs the grill. Otherwise, it looks like a terra with a soft top :D

    SSII!! SSII!! SSII!! Come on, everyone join in.
    SSII!! SSII!! SSII!!

    Come Awn Hooper,
    SII SII SII.

    Actually I like both sets of Grills as long as i am the only one with the 71 grill:D
    and if you look close to my pic - you have to admitt - mine looks a lot more like farm equipment than yours.

    All I want for Xmas is a new plow attachment for my farm equipment....:D

    Hoop, I have thought about the SSII Conversion, but the Kits are just to darn expensive. And original stuff, is either to hard to find or, beaten within an inch of its life.

    Bill,

    I would like to see a source for the half cab tops. Do you know of anyone building the halfcab top?

    :)

    :) Yep. Those early grills definitely herald back to the farm implement days. By the late 70's, and especially with the SSII, IH was trying more for the wheeling community, and sport wheeler at that.

    I would have to say the grills depend on what the owner of truck likes.

    Both grill look good. I prefer metal over plastic, but it is easiet to work on the radiator with the SSII grill if it was damaged 4x4.
