4X4 vs 2WD are the cabs the same?

Me again. I am doing the V8 swap into my 85 Ranger 2WD. I have not been able to find a donor truck to rob the cab and stuff from. I did find a 4X4 I can go look at. Does anyone know if the cabs are the same?

i'm 99% sure the cabs are the same, the only difference would be A) if the floro boards are shaped differently to acconmidate the t-case, but shouldn't be, or B) if you have a manual t-case, the hole in the floor, if not the switches on the dash...

can't think of any other difference...

Believe they are the same. Only difference would be the trans inspection cover.
