A 98 frame will work out fine. I'm using a 94. There's a couple different ways you could shorten the frame. 1, at the stock manufacture welds. The frame is basically two sections. If you go this route you'll have to cut away half of the heater channel from the windshield forward so the body will fit over the frame, which is what I'm doing. 2, you could cut the frame further towards the front removing the section of the frame that bows out and weld the frame back together.

Anywho, a 98 frame will work.
