thats what i was thinkin to because i believe 83-92 was the same frame but there aint much for the 83-88 front end, im goin to the ranger because of gas prices and my f150 gets about 10mpg

I think you may need a different core support... not 100% sure though...

LMC lists two different part numbers...
