also just found this site for you.. http://www.customgrills.com/ it says 81 to 85 but im sure it will fit 81 to 90 trucks just a litte mod to the grill frame on your truck if its a 86 to 90 like mine, They just had to cut away some of the grill frame to make it fit. even when i put the old one back on you could not notice the cuts as they were only like 1/4 of a inch

i don't think it would fit a 86-90 if it says it was for 81-85. the grilles 86-90 are wider. they are different.
81-85 grille

If you want to put a 81-85 grille on your truck, swap the rad support from a salvage yard. the rad support is the difference, and I believe is how the 84's can get a 93 grille put on..... So I have heard, and so I am going to try soon. I have a 84, and have put a 86 grille like the one crazzywolfie has shown, I didnt have to change the rad support for that one but it is not a pefectly flush match.

there are no aftermarket billet grilles for these trucks... you can take a 72-79 gm billet grille from LMC truck remove the bottom billet bar and 1 inch from each side and it will fit... then just make some new brackets and bingo you got a billet grille
