Because of the different transmissions/transfercases/crossmembers, engines, headers etc that's going to be a tough one. Your best bet is to have one custom made.

depends on what you want i.e. cats, mufflers and size play a role most shops have a problem with putting on a cat free setup due to laws and all

I had the exhaust done on my 79 for $400, with me suplying the cats. The same shop quoted me $300 for the 74 with my own flowmasters, and the 79 was a shorty... weird.

I paid $300 for 2.25 full dual from manifold back with side exits and turbo mufflers. It serves my purpose well.
