    Hey guys I was wondering .. If I buy a 4x2 suburban (84) could I put the body on my 80 K30 frame? Are they the same? I have the chance to buy the burb for 400 and just sold my truck for $75 so I can probably buy it back. What all woudl be involved? would the saddle tanks work on the burb?

  2. What is the wheelbase on your K30? The Burb is probably longer unless you have a 4 door K-30!

    It will take alot of precise mearsuring and fabricating mounts and whatnot. Also the frame will need to be lengthened/shortened. It can be done, but is a big project.

    Mud is just thick water, or is it that water is just thin mud?
