    yes its been done a million times.

    K-5 are just a shortened pickup

    what generation you talkin about though

    is simple on 73-up

    but 69-72 is a little tricky though

    I have an 83 and I am lookimg to put a regular truck cab on the frame then shorten the frame in the rear and then build a flat bed. So the body mounts are the same and the cab will swap over.

    I am about to do the same thing in about a week. You will need to get the rear cab crossmember from a pick-up. I have heard that it will bolt right in, but I have not tried it yet. Also what are you plans for building the flatbed? I am not sure how I am going to build mine.

    There's a recent thread of flatbed pics.
