Putting a 89 3500 6' bed on a 94 1500 that has a 8' bed.

hey guys I was wondering if I could take my 89 chevy 6 foot bed and put it in place of my 8 foot bed on my 94 chevy. is the 89 chevy frame the same as the 94. I mean length wise not mounts or anything I can make it work as long as the frame on the 94 longbed chevy isnt longer than the 89 shortbed. As far as I know They are the same except the 94 is 2 wheel drive 1500 and the 89 is 4 wheel drive 3500.

Thanks guys

Frames and wheelbase are longer to accomodate the longer wheelbase. I jist did a similar swap. Short bed on long bed chassis. Installed an auxillary fuel tank in the extra space between the cab and bed. Farm truck.
