Like what do you mean? Do you want to go with a newer model body style? Or just replace body parts on your '88?

as far as physically goes, any motor up to 97 fo sho should bolt in. Frames have not changed. Interior, prolly up to 92. I know the cab length changed a few times from the 80's style to the early 90's then again for like 93/94, I think (ext cab)

1983-1992 should work.

Probably 1983-1992 as well.

Due to computer controls changing around 85, i'd try to stick close to a transmission from a similar year Ranger, unless you can verify that everything is the same.

1983-1988, if your grille looks like this.
