    Do you already have an account? Raising the cab to match the bed is pretty standard when swapping frames, the earlier frames were almost straight, imagine a ladder lying down. Log in or Sign up. Did somebody say that these truck chassis' would urn laps times close to those of a Vette, Porsche, or the Italian super cars? If I had a good stock frame I'd still go with it but with no frame or a frame that is damaged beyond reasonable repair a frame swap makes a lot of sense.

I've heard that s frame swaps fit more closely. Find More Posts by 56chevy Originally Posted by 56chevy Last edited by TooMany2count; at I've been looking into this as well. You will have to make your own mounts, but that's not terribly difficult if you can cut and weld.

    I'm thinking of using a '92 frame and drivetrain under my '58 truck. Thats all I know for now, length wise and width wise it will work. Last edited by b.

    It's just an old truck part!! There is a guy in Florida who does a lot of 88 to?? Google Purple Monkey Customs. Unless you want it to sit stock height or up high as a 4x4 a Jag XJ front end fits the TF frame pretty good and you can find complete ones in the Seattle area for under Then you can install rear axle of choice.

    There isn't a free lunch when it comes to frame swaps. For perceived easiness you either cut up the original sheet metal to a degree or raise the body off the frame several inches or both. S you are stuck with the wheels sitting several inches inside the fenders and need spacers to move the out 88 and up you might be limited to wheels with no offset or reverse and may have to run positive offset rims.

    A buddy called me last night asking what was behind the aluminum plug in an S steering box because they were sticking a 40 Ford pickup on an S 10 chassis and the steering box interfered with the front fender, he wanted to grind the front of the steering box for clearance.

    I suggested making a bubble in the fender to clear it. From what he said it wasn't close to a bolt on as they had to do a number of mods to the frame to get it to work all the while the stock frame was sitting on it's stock suspension 50 feet away and with a front crossmember and a 4 link would have been a much better choice and make a much more valuable truck in the end.

My ongoing truck projects: It does the heavy work and hauls the projects around. Originally Posted by cadman I can keep adding pictures if anyone is interested???
