    good for some basic info, but theres soem incorrect info there, especially right at the begining about 73-up having thicker frame rails, also power doors first in 77, not in 78 like he says, and also RH oil stick first in 79 not in 80, and 79 did have chromed lower grille bumper filler panel and not just in 80,
    and i dont know what this is all about:
    "1982 - The 6.2L 379 diesel was offered. It came with a special 4 speed overdrive manual transmission".

    4 speed manual o/d ??

    They used a Saginaw or New Process (can't remember which right now) 4 speed that was converted to an overdrive by using 4th (direct) as 3rd, and 3rd was set up as an OD gear.
