bed swap

is it possible to swap the bed from a late 80's or early 90's onto a 94'? Mainly I am concerned about any difference ther might be in the style lines on the side of the bed linning up with the cab.

I know 92+ will work, maybe 90 + . The 80's beds had differnt style lines

87-96 beds are the same.

Beds before 87 have squared wheel arches, look very wrong with the 90s round front arches.

Other than that, should bolt right up.

Speaking of bolting up. I looked on the LMC Truck website for our gen trucks and they only have the bolt kit for the 87 but doesn't say anything about 92-96. Will these bolts work for the 92-96 body style?

yup Virto is right 87-96 are the same-earlier 80s are just not the same-wheel wells and body lines are just wrong
