    I am pretty sure 88-98 2500 will do you just fine!! They didnt change the body till 2000

    from what i have read and seen. 1/2 ton and ld 6 lug 2500 same frame rails. then 2500 8 lug and 1 ton had diffrent mounts than the others. the ends of the frames were made a little diffrent.

    and if you keep that body style and have a non live hydrolic system like old fisher speedcaster. then it would be close to easy swap. only a basic headlight wiring problem possibly.

    Your real close sweet, but that applies to the 99-up and 01-up newer body style trucks..

    Ok 88-98 1/2 tons and 88-2000 3/4 to 1 ton are the same. The 99 - 2002 1/2 tons are different. Right?

    Correct, as long as it's the body style of that era and 4WD, yes.

    The Blazers, Suburbans and some 1 tons still used the old "square body" style up to 91 though so your 88-98 year designation doesn't totally apply that's why it best to use the body style as the designation...

    Again yes, as long as it is the body style of that era.. GM overlapped some of the model years so your better off using the body style as the application....like for example, in 2000 you could have an "old" body style 2500 (like an 88-98) or a new body style (like the 99-up 1/2 ton).
