I would like to put a frame from a 1 ton vehicle under my K5 and use it's running gear and all. It seems this may eleviate a lot of problems with axle swaps and whatnot, but may create some of its own. From a past post it was said that the K5 frames are different from pickups. Anybody know the differences from a Suburban to K5 frame may be? I'm thinking if I find a 1 ton 4x4 Suburban I could just shortent the frame and put the K5 body on it and have a parts vehicle to boot. Any body have a Sub and K5 they could do some mearsuring on? How about directions to a site that may have some information regarding frame dimentions????? Also, I believe that the 1 ton vehicles have heavier duty frames. Is that true or have I been staying up too late at night thinking about mods for the K5? Mud is just thick water, or is it that water is just thin mud?
