Default KANDUCO Sweet Tooth Grill...almost legendary

You guys, my 3 year hunt has come to an end. I have located an authentic never-to-be-made-again Kanduco sweet tooth grill add-on. You wouldn't believe where I found it...Right here on DF I was digging through very old for sale ads in the classifieds and found a post from July '09 for this item! Unreal. But it was for sale from a user that had only one post (obviously he only registered here to sell that item) Peagususairborne. Two or three guys tried to buy it but he never logged back on after the post. I PMed him offering $200 and he responded to my email within 12 hrs with pictures of it still for sale..WOW, how lucky am I? It's in the mail right now and should receive it by the end of the week..coming from WV. I am so excited I just can't hide it!

I'm almost not suprised actually....they have gone up in value since not in production anymore. When my dad bought one brand new new for his '96, he paid $69. Now people won't let them go for less than 200, or friggin $400? Wow, they more than tripled their value in used condition!

My '98 was sitting in the showroom new with those on it installed by the dealer when I bought it back in late '97. I didn't care for them, took them off and threw them in the trash. Prolly sitting buried deep in a landfill in south Georgia right now. LOL...

Maxx, trust me. You haven't the slightest clue for my burning desire to get these. And yes, they just sit over the middle bar on the left and right sides.

HammerZ71, you threw away a KANDUCO grill??? In the trash can? OMG you crazy S-O-B. May I ask though, if you knew at the time they were going to be so rare, would you have done the same thing? I really in disbelief that you did that, I would rather think they are lurking in a box around your garage. It would make me feel better.

You know, every other truck I have seen that add on installed on just looked horrid to me. You on the other hand seem to pull it off. I dunno what it is either...

I think it's a combination of the subtle changes. With the bumper guards, and all chrome grill, it just flows nicely. My old man had this on his '96 and looked beautiful, maybe cuz he had all chrome full brush guard and bug deflectors. But I agree, you put that grill on a stock front end, it just don't look right.
