73-79, and 80-93  they do not interchange between the 70's and 80's, unless you want to do a whole lot of cutting and welding.

After its been in your hands awhile, I'm sure it will fit any thing out there, including the space shuttle, if you wanted.   ;D

Also note that most Dakota tail lamps can be used on '81-'93 trucks in a pinch but not all full size tail lamps will swap onto a Dakota.

True.. I've been known to tweak parts from one vehicle to fit another vehicle. Actually that's pretty much the baseline for my project trucks :

The body lines wont quite line up, and the latches are different.

And they are different widths
No, there has been people that have gone through the trouble of changing the latches, and swapped the tailgates, the bodyline difference is minimal.
