ext cab/sb on a std cab/lb frame?

ok so i have done a ton of work to my truck and im getting tired of having a standard cab. im not going to buy a new truck and swap everything over, so i was wondering if anyone knew what the dimension differences were between a standard cab with a long bed and a extended cab with a short bed and if it would swap over. i would really like to put an extended cab on my frame.

The extended cab short bed is a longer wheel base. I don't know how much though. It could still be done, you will just have to shorten the bed.

IIRC the frames are made differently. The frame rails drop under the the passenger compartment and then raise under the bed. I'm not saying it can't be done but you may need some body lifting blocks.

There are 2 rules to getting ahead.
Rule #1. Don't tell anyone everything you know.
