    For your '83? Now I forget which year they changed size but I have some on a late 70's parts truck for $25 + shipping (hinges/pivots and the arms that hold it level) for both sides. I would also be interested in trading for something I need... Better go look thru your for sale posts again.

    I believe the 70's used a smaller diameter pivot than later on in the 80's. Just cant remember what year they switched /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    what else would it be for /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    according to my lmc catalog its 75-80 and 81-87. all i need is the part on the box, not the straps(already have) or the part on the tailgate. #12 in the lmc catalog

    Looks like mine are the wrong year then if you still have the original tailgate.

    Ever find any? I have some from an '84. You are talking about the pieces that mount on the bed and the tailgate goes on these pieces?
