Default Compatible body parts D21-Pathfinder

I have a 1988 King Cab 2wd 5sp. What body parts (hood, fenders, doors, frame, bumpers, core support) can be salvaged from a Pathfinder and used on the Hardbody?

Most of the body parts will swap from any 86.5-97 hardbody and 87-95 Pathfinder. Some parts may require the use of other parts to work.

Frame won't swap. Everything else should fit as stated above. Pathfinder will have 4wd front arches while your truck has smaller 2wd version.

Some grills require different headlights and corner lights, like 88-89 hardbody and 87-95 Pathfinder grilles. 4wds have different bumper brackets than 2wd. 93+ bumpers have different brackets than 86.5-92.

All the parts you listed will work on your truck except the frame.
What year is Pathy?
Bumper will need correct mounts, grill and lights to match.

LOL Joe. you forgot the gas cap and lug nuts.

on a serious note, the entire interior will swap with no big effort other than the actual work.
