would rock sliders from 80 up bronco fit our 78/79?

it looks like the rocker panel between wheel well to wheel well is shorter and also the frame tapers from the front to back more drastically in 78/79 than in later years.

any help is appreciated...

I thought I remembered reading somewhere that the frame to body height was different for mounting?

But the wheel base is the same right? So they shouldn't interfere but it sounds like your worried about aesthetics?

I believe you have to cut a couple inches off the front of the bar, then close up the hole. Then they'll fit. The wheelbases are the same between model years, but the 78/79 has a larger wheel well opening.
