Box replacement

Hey all,

I am looking to replace the box on my truck but am having troubles finding any for sale. I did come across a 1990 F250 box with the xlt package, will it be the same as my 96? I'm not to worried about color or anything, I plan on painting the truck anyways.
I also found a rebco box (loggers box). What do you guys think about those boxes?

The lines are the same on 89-91 boxes, tail lights are different but yours will fit that bed too.

Awesome, thanks for letting me know. I'm still stuck on if I should go for a regular bed or just make my truck bed tough as nails with a logger box.

Guy sent me pictures of the box and it looks awesome. Has two fuel doors, and no rust or dents. So I think Ill be picking that up for $450. I also found some fenders that look like they are in good shape from a 87 to 91. Is there a difference in front fenders?

87-91 AKA "Bricknose" fenders won't fit. The lights/hood/grille are different.
