    Are the 88-98 K1500 pickup and suburban frames the same? Considering doing a frame swap on a 93 GMC K1500 pickup and have found a 97 Full size suburban frame/running gear for a real good price. Just need to know if the actual frame would be the same.

    yeah the suv, has a longer center dip in the frame rails for the passenger area, and pickup would be shorter frame dip and then straight under the bed
