    Hey Y'all,
    I got a crazy question, would a 71 GMC body fit on a 75 Chevy K-10 frame? I've always liked my GMC, but would like to have her 4x4.I've got a good donor frame,save getting good spring hangers (rusted through in the rear /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif)
    I'm not sure either if the front parts could be made to fit on my 2 by frame.Just something I was toying with,a friend told me the frame's are 2 inches wider on the 67-72's any ideas? The GMC came factory w dana 60 rear /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif so I'd only have to find a 60 front and the right gears. Opnions ideas appreciated, Thanks,
    Conoverbandit

    The '73-ups have a longer wheelbase (just longer that the wheels don't center up and look right unless you shorten the frame). Something like 6 inches?
