lets say someone has (for example) a 1980 GMC/Chevy 2wd 1/2 ton truck with a BB and headers. Would those headers also fit a 1980 GMC/Chevy 4WD 1/2 with a bb? would there be any difference bewteen the 2wd and 4wd ??

That's about the size of it. I'm not sure, but you may run into front drive shaft clearance issues with 2wd headers.
