The trucks went from Datsun to Nissan in the 83 model year. They made some front end changes too, bumper, valance and grille were all tweaked with . They also lost the vents on the hood for the switchover year.

I'm excited to see the kit return to the fold, its simple but builds up well. I'm thinking some lift and the tires from the jeep Rubicon kit. The kits 6 lug wheels would be accurate too.

The hardbody model of truck started in the 86 1/2 model year and the long bed regular cab hardbodies were dropped after 89

Keep an eye on your local craigslist for deals on kits. Even kits that aren't your style can be traded off for ones that are.

Try and ignore Harry as best you can, too, lol. Every forum has a "that guy" , he is ours.
