    Pretty sure anything will fit if you're willing to make it fit

    Probably, since all they’re all so similarly sized. Might just be the mounts, you’d have to measure one to know.

    Personally I’d go flatbed, utility bed, or something custom before I went with a bed off a different body style

    From what I know the gap between the bed and cab is your problem. It would probably be to tight. Generally people try to put a later model bed on an early model and the gap is huge because the cab is bigger on the later models and 74 long beds. Pretty sure you would need to section it to work.

    Yup and vice versa if the early bed is used on a later model the gap is non existent
