Just remember, there are actually 2 different tailgates used between 80 and 86. 80/81 used folding metal straps to limit tailgate opening, while 83-86 used cables. I'm not positive which style was used in 82, perhaps both depending on build date.
I have been told the hinges also differ, but I cannot confirm this.
