  2. ‘72 Hood on a ‘74?

    1972-1987 Dodge Ram Trucks (D, W-series)
    Hi there, I was just wondering if anyone has tried putting a ‘72 D/W100 (or ‘73) on a 1974 power wagon. From searching online I can’t find much on this. Is there any reason to think that they would or wouldn’t match up? Thank you
