    hit up the JUNKYARD!!! that is the only way to go, just find one that caught fire or something, and snag the frame. i know a kid that just swapped a 2wd frame under his 4wd body, because the body was all done. he bought it for 600 bux with a trashed body on it, but it still had other usable parts, and duals from a 350 swap still bolted under it. just look around shit is out there.

    He could just do a front clip swap from a 2wd truck..they're the same from the cab forward...and pretty easy to find at the yards...I've talked to a couple guys that have successfully done it.

    wtf? the frames are the same width front and back. 2wd mounts the arms on top of the frame, 4x4's arms on the side thats why the wheels stick out in the front, 4x4 frames are taller,arms are mounted different and have a xmember under the engine everything else is pretty much the same
