87 to 96 will fit. Pretty sure 80-86 fits as well.

80-86 haven't a different latching system from what I have been told, especially 80-82 trucks.

Any 87-96 will go right on, 80-86 can be made to work but the pivot, latch and shape are different, not worth it most of all since those are worth more.
