Default swapping boddies 87-77 K5

I purchased a 87 K5 Blazer the motor and drive train are perfect so is the frame, but the body is shot like normal, I have a chance to get my hands on a 77 K5 Blazer body complete and can even get the frame if need be. Will this work for me or what kind of things will I have to do to make it work? Both vehicles are 4 wheel drive. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanx guys.

The frames are different so I would just swap the engines and transmissions
