    Hi every one. I am new here...I hit a deer today and I was wondering whats the name of the part that the head lights and the grill are screwed to? its bent, is it hard to replace I bought the truck as a project/daily driver ,but now I have to fix the damage. Looks like I will be needing a new drivers side headlight ,the part I don't know the name of, a grill and I think a drivers side fender. are there any websites of cheap parts for this truck. thanks every one any info will be appreciated.

    I had the same problem a couple of months back. I have a straight fender for a 95-97 that I didn't use that I'll get rid of cheap. Everything else I got from http://www.partstrain.com/

    Their shipping was a little slow, but the prices were the best I could find and the parts were correct.

    You're lucky you're in a 1st gen. The 2nd gen seems to disintegrate at contact.

    I hit a deer on Monday with my truck. It was the 22ton garbage truck I drive at work. 45mph she (deer) didn't know what hit her or turned her into a flesh pretzel.
