    Does anyone know the mounting differences between a 75 model fleetside bed and a 70 model ? I am wanting to put the 75 bed on my 70 model truck.THANKS IH1300

    I mounted an earlier bed on my '74 (a '71 IIRC). The front and rear mounts matched up perfectly but the holes for the middle mounts were in a different location. Also there is a cross member on the bottom of the bed that's in a different spot and doesn't line up with the frame brackets it should rest on (it's not bolted in that location). I just bolted up all the mounts that matched up and have had no problems for 6 years now. If you carry alot of weight you may want to drill the frame and bolt up the middle mounts and also relocate the frame brackets so they are under the cross member.
