Default 1989 bed exchange

My truck bed is rusted out pretty bad and I need to get something to replace it. I've been to the local LKQ and am having a difficult time finding another truck of the same Gen (1989-92) that is in decent shape. Are there other years that will be a direct bolt up (1st gen, 3rd gen, ect.)?

I also need to replace the front fenders and front clip (fenders were cut and clip is rusted out). Same problem as above with the bed. I will probably just buy the front clip new online as I don't think it would be that easy to remove a front clip in the middle of a JY with no power tools (spot welded).

Thanks for the help

1st gen and 2nd gen and 3rd gen bolt up but you have to change the cab/box/front clip if you go 3rd gen
