    I believe 77 or 78 and up. Its the yr that the floor changed behind the front seat.

    Well, MT's on track ... 1978-1991 will drop on. 1973-1977 have the goofy rear floor, so you'd have som hacking to do to make the older ones fit.

    The 73-77 bodies will fit without hacking, but you'll have to fabricate some new body mounts in the area behind the front seats. The 77 and older had inboard mounts that are fairly high, compared to the lower outboard mounts for the 78 and newer.

    The hard(er) swap is stuffing a 78 or newer tub on a 77 or older frame.
