Default '80s body on '90s chassis

Hi all,

Will an '80s body fit a '90s chassis? 4 cyl and manual trans to extended cab to extended cab or standard cab to standard cab (short to short; long to long).

I like the boxy style over the swoopy style, yet want the somewhat improved technology of the newer chassis.

Thx.
