    it's not a bolt on deal but it can be made to work you would have to fab cab mounts and shorten the bed

    It might be easier to put it on a shortbed frame.

    yes because the rear cab mounts on the 70 are on the outside of the frame on the later trucks there on a cross member between the frame rails

    swap frame mounted body mount brackets for cab from the 67-72 frame, drill holes and bolt with common 3/8" x 16tps hardware

    youll need to use tape measure to find out if cab and bed will fit before contacting the rear tires
