Can anyone pinpoint exactly when Ford switched from the small single-hole body mount to the larger 4-hole body mount?

Jason might have been thinking the TT frame to body.

Here is an older post on those brackets:

Thats correct. I am referring to the brackets that attach the body to the frame on the TT. They bolted onto the frame and had a single bolt hole into the body for "earlier" years and then changed in the 'later' years to have 4 bolt holes into the body. I am wondering when that change from one bolt hole to 4 bolt holes took place.

Jason,

I don't know if you're planning work on an earlier truck or a later one and I don't know how important authenticity is to you, but just for the record all of the brackets you're talking about were fastened to the chassis with rivets not bolts.

Yes, I meant to say rivets. My mistake
