I found this on Wyoming craigslist. Must be an old custom job or an uber rare factory model we didn't know about. Nice project. '76 F250 4x4 crew long bed.

I'm experiencing the same thing. I took a short bed off a 76 f100 to put on my 76 crew 4x4 and realized the frames are different widths. An earlier post says the holes closest to the cab will still line up, but mine does not.

Great pics and info. I just put a short bed on my 76 crew 4x4 from a 76 f100, but the front holes had to be redrilled as well. And as far as the rear braces, I just had to scoot them in to match the frame width, and didn't have to add the blocks on the very back because it sat flush on the frame.
