The Explorer stripes changed every year. In '73 there were only two different stripes offered, white and black. D3TZ-1020000-G white, D3TZ-102000-K black.
The '74 stripe was similar to '73 but has three stripes instead of two. These were also only available in black and white. D4TZ-1020000-A Black, D4TZ-1020000-B White.
In 1975 Ford changed the stripe design, it now goes along the upper part of the body, up one side, across the hood then down the other side. These were offered in four colors, D5TZ-1320000-B white, D5TZ-1320000-C yellow, D5TZ-1320000-D orange, D5TZ-1320000-E black.
In 1976 the stripe kit was offered in black, tan and white. There are 24 (!) different part numbers depending on color cab style, wheelbase, etc.
In '77 the kits were available in blue, red tan and white and again a ton of part numbers.
In '78 the design went to multi-color stripes. They were available in chamois/orange, chartruse/green and silver/black.
'79's were available in tangerine/gold and white/gold. This year it also made a difference in the stripe depending on whether the truck was built in Michigan or not. This year there were 22 different p/n's for the kits.

Here are illustrations from the Ford parts catalog.
1973 is type one, '74 is also considered a type one but is called a "Type one, three stripe".
'75 is type 2, '76 is type 5, '77 is type 8, '78 is type 11, 79 is type 12.

I have a 76 f250 4x4 that i am rebuilding and it has the type 3 stripes on it, is there anyway other than taking measurments myself that i can get exact measurments to have a new set cut? the old stripes are pretty worn and not sure that i can get those measurments from them, thanks

No one has the '73 stripes anymore but the later ones can sometimes be found at one of the obsolete parts suppliers. Let me know what color & body style you have and I'll look up the p/n.
