There were a couple minor differences in the emissions crap (including an extra solenoid on the carb IIRC). The 1980 also got the bigger flywheel from the G200 on the 4X4 G180.

Other than that, they were pretty much identical due to the line being redesigned for the 1981 model year. All design and technical upgrade efforts were devoted to the square headlight version.
