    The hinges from an 86 are different. The only parts I need are the tailgate hinges at this point.I'll let you know if I need anything else.

    I think you should double check, I'm pretty sure the later ones will fit both an older gate and the truck. Good luck.

    The newer set uo does not work. I aready had them. The 73-80 tailgates are different from the 81-87's.

    In another couple of posts while trying to figure this out for myself, the consensus was that the hardware must match tailgate, but either setup pre or post 80 will work. :dunno:
