    I picked up a 1980 frame from the junkyard this weekend. When I got it home I noticed some minor differances from my 87' frame. Mainly the front, bumper brackets and such. Are there any other changes that I should be aware of. I am putting my 87' complete body on the 80' frame. Thanks

    I'm wondering if also the back floors are different . I think in the 80 the floor extended to the drivers seat before dropping . In the newer models the floor was shorter and dropped in front of back seat .

    I think that change happened in 1979 not in 1980. Mine has the extra room for the passenger feet.

    The floor change actually took place in 78.. I have a 77 and 78 .. the 77 goes all the way to the rear seats..
