new frame-old truck
I was searching the specs of any post '85 GM truck, and happened upon the 1996 Yukon. It's the same wheel base as my '58 GMC, but is 5.4" wider. Is there some overriding reason I shouldn't think about swapping out the whole frame - assuming one was available for a decent price? Doing the math, 5.4" is 2.7" on each side, and it seems there would be plenty of wheel-well on each side to accomodate.
