    on the 79 burban that i just cut up and got rid of
    the mounts behind the door where on the out side of the frame all the way back to the bumper.
    where as on a truck they are on the inside of the frame

    I don't know about that one but I am putting my blazer body on a longbed pickup frame and some of the body mount will have to be reloctaed and not to mention the difference in height, the front is the same but the frame goes up right behind the cab as opposed to the blazer where it goes up a couple of feet further.
    But I will be dealing with that with some body lift blocks and repositionned mounts to minimize differences.
