    the frame width is just a hair different (28" on 81-87,91 and 27 3/4" on 73-87). also the frontend is shaped just a little different and they may have the clearances to close on the 81-87,91 that it won't fit the 73-80 without hitting.

    just a guess

    if you really like it and it is worth it to you you can convert your front clip to the 81-87/91 style then you could prob make fit pretty well.

    if i am not mistaken it looks like a 73-80 pickup they show the bumper on on there website

    www.roadarmor.com it lists it as 81-87 but shows a 73-80
