Doors yes and no, cabs no...  Door shells same, glass thickness lightens up after 1981.  Cab differs where the hood hinges mount and the wiper switch goes to the steering column.  All can be dealt with if you have the skills.

yes door will go on it no problem.  Door pad and all from the 86 will go on it.

the inside handles and vent handles will be different. not sure if you can swap them out, but you might be able to make it work
