Bed question

I just picked up a 89 swb and it has a big dent in the side of the bed. The metal is stretched pretty bad. I figure its cheaper to replace the bed than to have it fixed since the truck needs painted anyway. My question is will a 88-99 4x4 bed bolt up to my 89 2wd? I found a couple beds that are perfect but thy came off 4x4 trucks.

Yes, they are interchangeable.

The bed doesn't care if it's 2wd or 4wd (unless it has some "4x4" stickers on it).

It does have stickers but thats ok. The truck is red and white and the bed is silver and green. lol it'll look bad but it already looks bad so thats ok. lol It will be a driver/fixer upper. It has a 5.7 in it and is a 2wd swb single cab so thats all that matter to me. I'll be starting a new thread on it when I get around to working on it. But for 700 bucks for a running truck I'm not complaining.
