Default Will body parts fit?

I'm looking into picking up 86 half ton 2wd with a 360 on propane. I currently drive a 1990 half ton 4wd with a 318. The 86 is much better shape on the body as I've put a few dings in mine. What I'm curious of is if the body parts will match up. Front quarter panel, box, bumpers, grills etc. I know the 360 will fit and would consider rebuilding it and putting back on gas. Just curious if the rest will match up?

Well there's not a lot a lot of differince in ether truck. Minor body line changes and differint grill more plushy intirior. The big changes are EFI, electronics, transmission. Box and a lot of body parts will cross over. They didn't do a whole lot with gen 1 body after 82 sheet metal change till the 94 year.

I had a '90 Ramcharger and even though the grill (grille is scrapyard talk) looked the same the headlight bezels wouldn't fit off an 89. That should be the only difference that I have encountered...and I encountered a lot on that truck.
