Great stuff.
Why I said the 80 - 82's (& I should have included the 83's) is a seperate generation (3rd) with 84 - 86's being a 4th generation is due to some minor and major differences.
The 80 - 86's share some commonalities such as body panels, grilles, etc. but there are many differences also.
80 - 83's had some major changes during those years (351M to a 351W engines for one), free running hubs to full time, rear ends (9" to 8.8"), dash layouts, EEC's, carbs to throttle body injection and automatic transmissions (C6 to AOD).
Also as I attempted to state before, the aftermarket world suplies the 80 - 83's with the least amount of parts compared to all the other year Broncos. Occasionally using a Master Parts Catalog parts can be referenced for Ford Light Duty Trucks, then the part numbers used to find parts not listed for 80 - 83 Broncos. I am talking mostly not major components but still an issue.
I know because I have an 82.
Great job though on the Generation years gathering and pictures! Kudos!!

So do you think that setup above would work out over all, even the the 3rd gen years?

the Bricknose trucks have the same thing, 87 and 88 are different from 89-91, Every truck has inner generation differences.

Xenoforo is fine (usually dont care bout platform, get used to them all). This one's gudnuf.

My 1 "additions/changes":
It (Xeno) has a lill yellow banner cross OP on each thread entry. Makes it easier to tell who OP is rather than scan to post #1. I'm on enuff forms to not remember who is...
All Ways 'less adds'. Here - w/in the thread, 1 AH has "instructional vids' embedded in that R not so for me, just nother way to sell; some (lotta canabis) embedded elsewhere to look like posts (is it in the wkly round up, elsewhere?) Thumbs dwn button? too many abuse it? Dummie proof (dats me!) pic upload (may B here'n now already)?
Beyond the very basic is luxury to me, I don't use a 1/4 of it. Like post counter so as to C length we're going ona thread AND cite it for reference in later posts.

Thanks for askin, that means mre than any changes created.

I like the OP idea but I honestly don't understand what you meant with the rest. Sorry. Can you explain it again.

I think that is where I got this info I posted as well.

@miesk5 , if we do this new layout, it maybe take some time moving threads around. You cool with that. :p
Yo Bryan,
It will take much time and effort to sort it all out.
However, my vision took a turn downwards a few years ago so I won't be able to handle the work.
My good eye had came down with macular degeneration causing much vision loss. My other eye was and still is a "lazy eye".
I receive eye injections periodically, however they just stave off more loss.
