1986 questions

Im lookin at a 1986 f250 for sale here. Its a gasser with a 4 speed tarnny...anyways its a 1986 and im looking to build a cheap plow truck and im thinking this is it depending on what the frame looks like.
I need to know what frames are the same as the 86' so i can buy a plow frame.

80-86 for sure, possibly the 87-93 as well. They are pretty much the same setup chassis wise. 80-86 will have your same body

86 was the first year for EFI. The front shock mounts are rust prone, some have 1 shock on each side and some have a Quad shock setup
