I ran into this issue with my 73 Cuda because I was using 70 bumpers, I cannot give you any real definitive answer other than its the way the two attach the guards. The later models used a different jack which changed the way the bumper was configured as I recall. Also, if I remember right you can make them work but I don't remember exactly what I did.
