I was looking at the differences between the '79 and '80 Power Wagons and the '80 looks like the same body as the '81-up. I was wondering how much trouble it would be to put the 4 headlight setup on in place of the 2 headlights.

Anyone done this?

Sheet metal changed for the '81 model year, '72-'80 shared common sheet metal. From what I've heard (never tried) the grilles aren't a direct swap either way...I even think I remember hearing that the way they line up to the fenders is different between the '72-'80 trucks and the '81+ trucks. On top of that you'd have to change up the wiring and modify and/or swap core supports.
