the frames are the same. you just have to mod the front of the frame alittle. i swapped a 2wd frame into my 4wd and had to drill some holes and weld a few things. but all the cross members are the same and rear axle placement is the same you just need to measure it up for the front axle and drill and weld for the spring mounts
