Need info on 1987 Ford f-250

I have a 1987 Ford f-250 roll off flat bed that I want to update to a newer body 1989-1996. Will it fit on the 1987 frame with no problem just bolt on. I would like a 1993 or newer to fit. I know I will have to change cab, fenders, doors, interior, etc. Just want to know if all of the parts will bolt up on frame with no problems. Thanks and I will be waiting for replies on this.

I cant think of any differences in the frames other then the accordian frame horns up front for collisions the later models would have, but this is just a guess as not knowing anyone attempting this as of yet. I bet all the body bolt locations are in the same place, the only difference i can think of like i stated earlier would be the front bumper mounting.

As far as body panels, the lines on the lower sections have been slightly changed, so you can`t mix doors, fenders and beds off different model years.

I've seen 87/92 doghouses on 80/86 trucks and it looks fine... the wheelwells over the bed dont quite match the front when you do it but in your case i dont see why it wouldnt work! i have a friend that has an 89 doghouse on his 93! looks fine... can't even tell the diffrence untill you see his instrument cluster. He had wrecked it and found a matching 89 doghouse for dirt cheap so he just bought it instead.
