Ordering a new grill from Rock Auto 1994 Chevy K3500

Does anybody have any recommendations for a grill? Or a different place to order from?

If this is in the wrong place, please move it accordingly.

Are there completely aluminum grilles?

How about Made in the USA?

Wish I had time to make one. I have time but it doesn't seem like I can get things done like I used to

Can't help you out, just wish I could find one that flowed more air. The stock grill on my GMC doesn't flow near enough when towing to keep my fan clutch from kicking on to cool things down a lot.

What is the best material to look for in an open GMC style grille/without emblem for a 96 K1500 Suburban? I do not want an emblem or anyplace to mount an emblem. These will go on Chevys and GMCs

I have seen Aluminum, plastic, ABS? and polyurethane.

Which is the most durable?

I read one guy posted he bought plastic grille and it broke to pieces within a year

I definitely want something better and more durable than the OEM grilles.

It also wouldn't hurt anything if it was easier to remove and reinstall.

Links to a few I am considering:

Back at it. Looking for another grill. I looked up this thread and none of the links work.

If anybody has any links they want to post, I'd appreciate it.

Apparently I didn't make a good choice last time. It's self destructing on the truck
