    A friend called today, he drives a 99 or 00 2500 ext cab. said he was looking at a 01 3500. He asked if the frames were the same for transfer of his plow mounts. I used an educated guess and said no. My reasoning was that I thought the 2500 HD frames and the 3500 frmes were probably te same but not the regular 2500. Does anybody know for sure???

    well if he has the old body style like a '97 no the frames are different but if they are both the new style they should be compatablr in my opinion beacues the front end of my truck'97 3/4 is the smae as a 1 ton '97 .

    Cat3320, Thanks. I agree about the '97's. My trucks with the old bodystyle are all the same. But,he has a 99 or 2000 new style regular2500. This was the truck they came out with before the 2500HD and new 3500 new body style. I wonde if the regular 2500 and 3500 are the same. I thought they were different because of the engine offerings. (Duramax and 8100) I guess imoa, the 2500HD and 3500 shouldbe more heavyduty. (if there is sucha thing)

    he should be able to call the plow company where he bought the plow,they should have the part #'s for the new truck,compare them with the part #'s for the old one.
