That would fit up fine I have a 91 bed on my 86 F150 that would line up perfectly.

positive on that one? I was told that the 88 would fit perfect but the 87 would be a little off? Just want to be 100% sure on this one.

The body style changes go 80-86 87-91 and 92-97 and if you look at an 87 the beds are the exact same as the 95 and the bed on my 86 looked completely different than the 91 and it matched up perfect so I see no reason why it wouldnt work

Are you sure Dave? I mean I could be wrong but looking at these pictures the lines look the same I know the lines on my 86 are different from the lines on a 91
Heres an 87

Heres my 95
