    Folks, I'm doing a frame off restoration on my 76 FJ40 and need a replacement front bib. I'm finding 79 and newer bibs but not older models. What is the difference from the 76 to the newer models? Will the newer bibs work on a 76?
    Thanks

    Welcome.




    Headlamp spacing (width) changed on 01/79 and later trucks with the introduction of the square headlamp bezel.


    1970-1978 bibs interchange and use the round headlamp bezel and do not have marker lamps below the headlamps.




    10/69 and earlier 40 series had marker lamps below the headlamp assemblies.




    Bibs will interchange between years of trucks; 1958-1984.
