Default Question about 88 89 HB headlights/grills

Did 88 89 HB's come with the square pathfinder type headlights AND the standard oval shaped headlights? Both of these trucks are 88's but the grills are different.

Per the sales brochure for 88, all the Hardbody's had the Pathfinder style headlights and grille EXCEPT the 2wd standard trim regular cab and the HD and cab chassis models,

From the sales brochure for 88:



all 89's had Pathfinder style headlights and grill per the 89 brochure.

Both 88-89 Hardbodys had the pathfinder style headlights and grilles with honey comp inserts. Wether it was 4x4, long bed, or any other configuration. 90-97 went back to the sealed beam style.
All styles of lights and grille configurations will interchange all years of Hardbody trucks as well as Pathfinders.

The red truck in your post above is an 86.5-87 model. I can tell by the grille and corner light shape and configuration. Again, all these different grille and headlight selections can be swapped out amongst all the years of the Hardbody trucks.

The red truck in your first post has the 86.6-87 2wd grille on it. Looks to be a lifted 2wd too. I bet that truck is an 87 or the grille was swapped.
