I am pretty darned sure the cabs cross over. Not sure about the extra cab to single cab thing. Depends on the back cab mounts/front most bed mounts lining up. Sure wouldn't be tough to relocate some mounts though. Whenever we had body swapped, which has been 1st gen 4runner to 3rd gen pickup frame and a 3rd gen extra cab to a 1st gen long bed pickup frame, the front mounts pretty much line up, the rear cab mounts by the back of your seat usually nearly line up. A little fabrication and massaging has always been involved swapping generations of bodies and frames but it's not really tough.Basically what I am trying to say is if you are swapping the same body style I don't think you will have much to do, if anything.
Each generation's cabs should interchangeable with their same type, might need a little adjustment, as with the beds. Swapping x-cabd and Std cabs will require moving the rear cab mounts.Beds are also interchangeable, not just within the same generation, but at least across the first 3, they aren't a perfect fit, but they are interchangeable.'79 2wd bed on '86, though could only get it to 1.5" cab-to-bed space.'91 4x4 bed on '85 2wd long bed frame, had to move the front bed mount, had to use the 2wd springs to center the tire, w/the 4x4 x-cab springs the tire isn't off.Seats between 2nd and 3rd gens are interchangeable as well, '91X-cab 60/40 seats in an '86. The seats are wider and just barely touch the doors, but the outer mounts lined up perfectly.A buddy had an '87 4-Runner w/'94 4-Runner front and rear seats.
The cab mounts at the core support are in a little different spot i believe. Definitely on 2wd vs 4wd
Awesome, I know the beds are all mostly interchangeable. A 3rd gen bed might look pretty good on my 85.
Will for just would look funny, the 3rd gen bed is 64" wide, the import bed for 2nd gens is 62.5" wide and for 1st gens are 61.5".
