8th Gen F150 compatibility

Post #1 by NickC-WithTheXLT » Wed Jun 08, 2016 11:45 am

I have an '88 f150 Lariat...

I love the truck for the most part, except I don't really care for the perfectly flat tailgate style they have. I prefer the tailgates on like the 1977ish f-series trucks. Does anyone know if a tailgate from a 1977 ford will work for my pickup? Also what else would be compatible with my truck across the board? Interior, body, anything from any year. I want to build a really unique 8th gen not one that's like the last 100 you saw going on dump runs. Thanks.

Parts from 1980 through 1996 and some supper duty F250 and F350 in 1997 could be adaptable. Nothing body wise from 1979 to 1973 is going to fit with custom reworking. Good luck :nod:

I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good. My Ex- Fleet of Sixes these are all long gone! :bang: 1954 Customline 223 3 speed with O/D, 1963 Fairlane project drag car with BB6, 1977 Maverick 250 with C4, 1994 F-150 a 300 with 5 speed.
