they will fit but the lines will be diffenant. 80-86 will be the same 87-91 then 92-96 light dudy 92-98 heavy duty. All the parts will bolt on but if your swaping front end parts you will need the cowl for the hood to line up.

YES, all will fit from 1980 to 1996 1/2ton and 1997HD trucks. But the front you will need everything, core support, cowl (on newer models), and wiring to the headlights. The one I did 4 years ago was a 1985 and changed the front to a 1997, took all weekend to do. All body lines match PERFECT and no one can tell until they open the doors are looks under the hood!

Yes.

As has already been said, they are interchangable. From 80-86, the hood sloped different, the fenders are shaped different in the front and they have the built in reflectors in most of the fenders. for the front you will need core support and everything. I also beleive the fender wells on the beds are different as well but the body lines will still match up.
