The motor in my 81 is a 5L. Not a bad motor, but I'm upgrading.

The sheet metal yes, is 88-98, but the grills and headlamps are 88-92 1/2, then they went to composites on the Silverados.

5.0'* are **** in a truck, they all are nototorious for seal problems and most were under powered for the application.....Now when it came to the 5L being in the Firebirds, Camaro, and so on.....Still had the leaks, but definantly didn't have the power issue

I wouldn't put that money in a 5.0, not in a truck anyway. If I were gonna spend that money I'd upgrade to a 5.7 (350), which is what I'm doing. Like posted above, the 5.0 is to underpowered for a truck. Don't get me wrong, I've never had a problem with mine, but it could be stronger.
