    The front clip and front two body mounts are exactly the same between the pickup cab and K5. All you need to do is put in a crossmember for the rear two cab mounts and I believe you can do that with a factory crossmember.

    the factory mount is about 3 to 4 inches behind the pick up cab mounts, we welded plates on the factory mounts. and then welded 2 inch square channel to it.

    73-87 all the same except the back crossmember. old style sit 1 inch lower. and each era need the body mounts for that style frame.

    the old frames had small holes and the new frames had big hole. just match the frame to the mounts and go!!! if like most everybodys old wornout stuff buy new and if bodylift is going in then get 1 it will come with new longer bolts and save you some hassle
