I live in western Nevada. My 78 doesn't have a carrier. I can't find holes for an interior carrier, and there are no holes or indications that they were filled on the outside. I would like to have the outside carrier if it can be installed on a Bronco with no predrilled bolt holes on the side body panel and tailgate.No, body style is different. Do you need one for a 78/79? Where do you live?
