    You gotta switch radiator supports, outer & inner fenders, and hood ... washers might not line up right ... basically IF you have the whole front clip and such from the 73-80, yes... lotta work though.

    mine is on an 87 cab
    pull the cowl panel off

    while you are swapping just toss the ugly front and get a nice 4 headlight
    I wanted mine to stay looking old for insurance/smog/registration purposes
