ive been looking for a decent tailgate for a while and havent had much luck. so i figured mabe ill just buy a new reproduction shell. while i was looking at one to buy i noticed the years 80-82 and 83-96 they have two different gates just curious if anyone knows the difference. i found another parts bronco. its a 93 with a good gate. it would be my luck i buy it and the gate doesnt work on my 80.
thanks

all you have to do is swap the latches. i did it on my 81 and its not that difficult. just make sure to soak all the hardware with plently of penetrating lube before hand, considering the bolts are removed using a phillips head screw driver and that they are usually covered in a decent amount of rust.
