Tailgate

I dented my tailgate backing into a tree while mudding a few weeks ago. So I am looking for a tailgate for my truck....Preferably very cheap. Theres one on craigslist for $25, but its off an 86. Will it fit? I actually really like the look of it, I just do not want to go get it if it won't fit.

You need a tailgate from a 87-97

The LMC 100$ tailgates are the super cheap thin gauge cheap garbage ones!
