82 2wd cab on a 79 4x4 frame
« on: Jan 05, 2011, 09:17:32 AM »
Newbie here, Picked up a 79 4x thats been cut up, windshield, roof and back of cab gone and partial tubing started on the rear.
Have access to an 82 2wd, will this cab fit on the 79?

Thanks I kinda thought they might be, and it would be nice to have a windshield, roof and a floor.

If memory serves, the very front cab mounts for the radiator core support are different, but everything else is the same.  You'll obviously have to cut your own holes in the floor for shifters, but I'm sure you knew that.
