Much too wide. I'v seen them on '73-'87 and '67-'72 chassis, but even those frames are too wide and look 'off'. The '88-'98 is even wider... If 4x4 is what you are after, than the Dana 30 front out of a Cherokee could fairly easy be fab'd onto the factory frame. If getting it lower is what you are after, than a Camaro/ Nova subframe will be way easier to get it there, and you could use all stock suspension for the Camaro/ Nova as you would set the clip at your desired ride height

Use Google and you'll find that the S-10 frame swap is the most common and the best fit for these trucks.
