Swapping (t'gate differences between the years); "...Amazingly throughout the number of body style changes from 78 through 96, the tailgate remained nearly the same. You can swap tailgates between all of these years taking note of the following: I've broken down the 3 major changes into their respective years:
78-79 Type A;
80-82 Type B;
83-96 Type C;
If your swapping within the same type it's just a direct swap. If swapping A & B you have to switch the glass and glass support brackets; If swapping B & C you have to switch latches and striker plates; If swapping A & C you have to switch the glass, glass support brackets, latches & striker plates..."

according to The Certified Automotive Parts Association (CAPA). CAPA was established in the public interest in 1987 to set up and oversee a testing program to assure the suitability and quality of automotive replacement parts. Independent, unbiased, non-profit, fully transparent and with no vested interest in the outcome, CAPA has since become the auto industry’s recognized authority on the quality and safety of parts used for collision repairs.
Our comprehensive testing program is a valuable public service that provides consumers, auto body shops, parts distributors and insurance adjusters with the reliable, objective means they need to identify quality replacement parts. Parts that will fit, perform, last and be every bit as safe as the originals. CAPA Certification is even recognized by government regulators as an assurance of quality.
What makes CAPA stand out from the rest is the fact that we have no vested interest in the sale of these parts or in selling of certification services. The public interest is what is at the core of the CAPA program.
To date, over 128 million replacement parts have earned CAPA Certification by meeting or exceeding CAPA’s stringent quality standards, making it one of the most widely respected quality assurance programs ever. That’s the good news. The bad news: There are millions of untested, problematic parts in the marketplace. To be sure you have a genuine CAPA Certified replacement part look for the distinctive yellow and blue CAPA Quality Seal that comes on every CAPA Certified part.
The CAPA Quality Seal appears only on replacement parts that meet or exceed CAPA Standards. It provides independent, objective assurance of product quality.
If there is no seal on the part, it is not CAPA Certified, regardless of what the seller says.
