I think that the frame ups for all dodge trucks were pretty much the same for all those years. Not positive but Im fairly sure. I know that a 76 powerwagon frame fit under a 78 trailduster. No problem.
The axles changed in 80 for 1/2 ton. then 85? and up front axle changed for CAD. 80 up probably have different driveshafts cause the Transfer case changed also. 79 up hoods are different but you can swap hoods between years and the body lines line up. 79 up hoods dont' have bird baths in them.
