    I am selling a roll cage and I know there was a change around 80 I think be not 100% sure. Any know? The cage I got came out of a 77 and I tried to put in my 88 and the mounts behind my driver seat float above the floor by about 4". Thanks for your help and if you want to see the cage here is the link. http://coloradok5.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1523287#post1523287

    73-77 are the old floor pan, 78+ is the new style with all the leg room for the rear passengers.

    Actually, I think I like the '73-77 better :D because the seat is mounted furthur back and you can fully stretch your legs. Kinda get that laid back in bed feeling. The '78+ has a deeper well for the feet, but seat is closer. hehehehehe...
    He's right though, change in 78 to the deeper rear seat foot well.
